The Best New Honda EVs & Hybrids: Save Green by Driving Green

Being thrifty is all the rage these days, and there’s no thriftier lifestyle than one fueled by a fuel-efficient hybrid or EV. Even as gas prices continue to drop, eco-friendly green vehicles are still gaining popularity. In fact, 2018 plug-in EV sales in the U.S. smashed 2017’s figures, and that trend should continue into 2019 and beyond.

Leading that charge into the eco-conscious fray is Honda. Featuring an impressive lineup of new hybrid cars, EVs, and plug-in models, Honda is ready to put the future on its back. Here are the best green Honda vehicles you should consider before visiting our car dealership in Centennial.

Honda Clarity: Carbon Footprints, Begone!

Included in the Honda Clarity lineup are three amazing cars: Plug-in Hybrid (PHEV), Electric, and Fuel Cell. Each Clarity reduces your emissions as well as the number of trips taken to the gas station, and due to Honda’s revolutionary work, the Clarity was also awarded Green Car Journal’s Car of the Year. How ‘bout them apples?

2018 Clarity Plug-In Hybrid

In 2018, Honda expanded its alternative-fuel offering with this bona fide stud of a hybrid car. Recognized by KBB as the best electric hybrid car in America, the Clarity PHEV can travel 340 miles, fully charged, or 47 miles on electric only. Powered by a 181-horsepower engine, this Honda hybrid is proof that great things can come in eco-friendly packages.

2018 Clarity Electric

Available for lease only in select states, the Honda Clarity Electric is quite the superstar. Its 161-hp engine produces 221 lb.-ft. of torque; paired with a 25.5-kWh battery under the floorboards, the Clarity Electric can travel up to 80 miles on a single charge, besting rivals like the Smart Fortwo EV and Mitsubishi i-MiEV in range. The Clarity Electric, while only leasable in certain regions, is substantially cheaper than the Hyundai Ioniq, as well.

2018 Clarity Fuel Cell

Utilizing hydrogen to get you from A to B, the Clarity Fuel Cell can travel up to 366 miles on one 5-minute “fill-up.” Not only is the Clarity fuel-efficient, but it’s also spacious thanks to a hydrogen fuel cell stack that’s incredibly compact, allowing 5 passengers to bask comfortably from within its glow. The HondaLink app even magically connects to the Clarity Fuel Cell’s fuel tank, alerting you when you need to hit up the nearest hydrogen-refueling station.

2019 Honda Insight

Redefining the entire segment, the all-new Honda Insight is worthy of each accolade bestowed upon it. It returns 55 mpg in the city, 49 on the highway, putting it right in line with the Hyundai Ioniq and Toyota Prius.

Standard features on all Insight trims include alloy wheels, push-button start, Honda Sensing, Bluetooth, heated side-view mirrors, and Pandora® streaming.
