Clarity BEV    (Score: 1, Normal) 07-29-2018 18:12

So the short story short. I just wanted to go and test drive Clarity full electric, since it fit's my new commute and obviously I moved to a state when you can have one. But the reality is that you can't. I was told two different things by 2 different dealers. they get one each month and you can't test drive one just reserve online and buy it when it comes in. Or there are no clarity BEV in whole state of California and they don't know when they're going to get more!
A month or so ago I had a friend lend me a HAH 2014/15 and I had a blast after not driving honda for the last 4 years and on top of that electric for the most part of my commute.

I see few post here in the forums from SoCal area about PHEV and I was even thinking about Clarity FC, which have similar leasing terms and they give you credit for the hydrogen, since it's 2x then filling up with gas, but decided against it.


Anyway, honda seems to advertise that but they don't seem to have the cars or the demand is too big. I might go with used honda fit for 2 year lease instead of 3 years for the Clarity electric, but just wanted to have more space on the back with 2 car seats.

they had test drive events for the FCEV and BEVs a while back. The BEVS are high in demand because of the $1.5k down $200/m with 20k miles/yr lease deal. The FCEV has a lease deal as well(more expensive but longer range and free hydrogen)

Well, I missed them both since I was on the marked back then and I assumed by the time I might be in the market they'll have them available. It's crazy. All I got from the dealers is that there are no clarity EVs anywhere in California and they don't know when the'll get more and one dealer told me that the FCEV is on hold till april 2019!
Anybody has any insight information on this?

Got a call from my local dealer and as of then I'm on all 3 lists for Clarity BEV, FCEV and Fit EV, but chances are very slim if at all.
BEV and FCEV seems to be on hold and If I get lucky somebody my get off lease Fit EV.

Well Fit EV is not on honda web site anymore:(

Why don't you just go and test-drive the PhEV, the experience should be pretty close for as long as you remain on the EV mode (which you should be able to do for a dealer test-drive).

From memory the BEV has slightly less power, but I doubt there will be any fundamental differences otherwise. Maybe Jeff can tell you more (I think he had the opportunity to drive test both during his numerous press events).
