The Clarity Electric has been available for $199 per month since the autumn of 2017, but with today's press release it appears that the lease terms have been updated and now the down payment will cost you an additional $600. Of course, this offer still only applies to residents of California and Oregon.


Honda Offers 2018 Clarity Electric Monthly Lease Payment of $199

May 10, 2018 - TORRANCE, Calif.
  • Clarity Electric eligible for $2,500 California and Oregon state rebate
  • Model eligible for California Clean Air Vehicle Stickers, allowing single occupant HOV access

The 2018 Honda Clarity Electric arrives at select California and Oregon Honda dealerships today, competitively lease priced at $199 per month. With a spacious five-person interior, premium appointments, and standard Honda Sensing® safety and driver-assistive technologies, the Clarity is a smart choice for customers in search of a roomy, sophisticated and affordable all-electric daily driver. The Clarity series was chosen as Green Car Journal's 2018 Green Car of the Year and Edmunds' Most Innovative Car in its 2018 CES Tech Driven Awards.

Combined with the 2018 Accord Hybrid and the soon-to-launch 2019 Insight, the Clarity Fuel Cell, Clarity Electric and Clarity Plug-in Hybrid represent the next generation of Honda vehicles, as the company advances toward its goal of growing electrified vehicles to two-thirds of global sales by 2030.

"We're upping the ante on both premium appeal and affordability with the 2018 Honda Clarity Electric," said Steven Center, vice president of Connected and Environmental Business Development at American Honda Motor Co., Inc. "At $199 a month, Clarity Electric consumers will not only get a very affordable zero-emissions driving experience, they'll also enjoy a level of premium quality and driving refinement that really no other electric car in the segment can match."

The 2018 Clarity Electric sedan is available for lease at select dealerships in California and Oregon with the competitive monthly payment of $199 (plus tax) for 36 months, which includes an attractive allowance of 20,000 miles per year and 24/7 roadside assistance. The lease, which reflects a built-in federal tax credit, requires $1,499 due at signing (not including tax, registration or additional fees).1 In addition, consumers from California or Oregon may qualify for state rebates of $2,500.2 The Clarity Electric is eligible for California-issued Clean Air Vehicle Stickers that provide single occupant HOV access.

The Clarity Electric gets up to an 80 percent charge in 30 minutes with DC Fast Charging (SAE combo).3 The Clarity Electric is one of the only electric vehicles to have DC Fast Charging standard. Level 2 charging gives Clarity Electric drivers the flexibility to charge their battery in just 3.5 hours at home, office or anywhere there's a 240-volt charger.3 The Clarity Electric has an EPA fuel economy rating of 126/103/114 MPGe (city/highway/combined)4 and an 89 mile EPA range rating on a full charge.4
