Honda is continuing to expand its Clarity lineup—and, by extension, its portfolio of eco-friendly vehicles.

After leasing the hydrogen-fueled Clarity Fuel Cell for $369 a month back in November, today the Japanese automaker announced that the Clarity Electric sedan will carry an introductory lease price of $269 a month for 36 months (plus tax) when it comes to select dealerships in California and Oregon in August 2017.

The lease terms include a 20,000-mile annual allowance and 24/7 roadside assistance. There’s also a federal tax credit built into the lease, which requires $1,730 down and the first month’s lease payment at the time of signing (not including tax, registration or official fees). In addition, California customers qualify for the state’s Clean Vehicle Rebate of $2,500.

“The Clarity Electric is the only affordable five-passenger EV sedan with all the technology, and safety and premium features a consumer expects today, including Honda Sensing as standard equipment,” said Steve Center, the vice president of Honda’s Connected and Environmental Business Development Office. “Honda customers have been asking for a true five-passenger sedan and we are pleased to make this a reality at an affordable lease price, enabling more consumers the opportunity to take home a zero-emissions vehicle.”

The Clarity Electric features a 120-kilowatt electric motor that produces 161 horsepower and 221 lb-ft of torque, which draws energy from a 25.5-kWh battery pack. The EV has a three-hour charge time when charging at 240 volts, and can achieve an 80% charge in just 30 minutes using DC fast charging with the SAE Combined Charging System. On a full charge, the Clarity Electric has an EPA range rating of 89 miles, and an EPA fuel economy rating of 126/103/114 MPGe (city/highway/combined).
