Honda Clarity Series Wins Drivers’ Choice Award
To the surprise of just about no one, the 2019 Honda Clarity Series has been voted as the best eco-friendly vehicle in MotorWeek’s annual Drivers’ Choice Awards, whose winners are chosen based on buyer perspective and characteristics like fuel efficiency, practicality, performance, and price. According to MotorWeek, these are the vehicles that they themselves “would like to have parked in our driveway, or at least dream about owning if we won the lottery.”
The Honda Clarity Series is a unique vehicle in the industry, a midsize five-passenger car available in every modern electrified form: as a plug-in hybrid, battery-electric, or fuel cell car. Everything about the rest of the car remains the same, allowing customers to choose the powertrain that suits them best without compromising on other features.

“We love having choices around here,” MotorWeek writes. “The Honda Clarity PHEV delivers an outstanding MPGe rating, along with great style, and Civic-based interior packaging and driving demeanor. Need more, there’s a full-EV Clarity, with 89-miles of range; and even a Clarity Fuel Cell. No matter how far you’re willing to push the eco envelope, Honda provides Clarity.”
Ever since its launch, the Honda Clarity Series has been exceptionally well received across the industry. It was named the 2018 Green Car of the Year, earned a 2018 California Air Quality Award, was dubbed Edmunds.com’s Most Innovative Car of 2018, and its fuel cell powertrain was named one of WardsAuto’s 10Best Engines of 2018.
In other words, 2018 was a great year for the Clarity Series, and 2019 is shaping up to be an encore.
