    The 2018 Honda Clarity Plug-In Hybrid is a remarkable vehicle inside and out. Redefining what an electric car can do, the Clarity Plug-In Hybrid can operate on solely electrical power before switching over to a hybrid system, at once achieving incredible fuel economy and pushing an electric car to go beyond its EV range limits. But as a refined and comfortable sedan, the Clarity Plug-In Hybrid also takes safety seriously with passive and active features plus driver-assistive technology.

Advanced Compatibility Engineering Body Structure

The Clarity Plug-In has a deep commitment to safety. And that commitment is demonstrated in Honda’s innovative Advanced Compatibility Engineering, or ACE, Body Structure. The design utilizes a network of frame structures that absorbs crash energy and distributes it away from the occupants inside the cabin. It also minimizes the amount of force that is transferred to the other vehicle involved, which keeps everyone safer on the road.

Active Safety Features

The Clarity Plug-In also features active safety equipment which helps boost its road performance into a reliable and sophisticated ride, able to take on various road conditions in stride.

Multi-Angle Rearview Camera with Dynamic Guidelines

Both Clarity Plug-In trim levels come equipped with a multi-angle rearview camera with dynamic guidelines. The camera allows drivers to check their surroundings before reversing. And dynamic guidelines help drivers maneuver in and out of tight spots with ease. There are three different views to choose from, each offering an optimal view for different driving situations.

  • Normal View – Check for a clear path behind the Clarity before backing out.
  • Wide View – Allows drives a better angle to see approaching vehicles, pedestrians, or cyclists.
  • Top-Down View – Particularly helpful when parallel parking.

Honda LaneWatch

A camera mounted on the passenger side mirror displays a live video feed of activity going on in the driver’s blind spot when a right lane change is signaled. The video feed displays on the 8-inch touchscreen inside the cabin and allows drivers to see up to four times more than using the mirrors alone.
