As you may know from our previous reports, Honda is not yet ready to let customers have full ownership of their excellent Clarity hydrogen-powered car. So once again the 2017 Honda Clarity Fuel Cell is being leased for the price of $369 a month for 36 months.
That price is excluding the taxes, registration, and the $2,499 plus first month’s payment at lease signing. So what they are doing to actually make the 2017 Honda Clarity competitive price-wise as they claim is offer incentives such as mileage allowance of 20,000 per year, up to $15,000 of hydrogen fuel, up to 21 days of an Avis Luxury Rental in California, and 24/7 roadside assistance.
Of course, the biggest incentive for the Californians who will lease this thing is the fact that they are driving a polar bear friendly car that emits water vapor. The 2017 Honda Clarity has an EPA driving range rating of 366 miles and fuel economy rating of 68 MPGe.
“Launching the Honda Clarity Fuel Cell at an affordable lease price will enable more consumers to enjoy the benefits of this spacious and well-equipped fuel cell vehicle,” said Steve Center, vice president of the Environmental Business Development Office at American Honda Motor Co., Inc. “With an EPA driving range rating of 366 miles, fast refueling and a growing network of hydrogen stations in key California markets, the Clarity Fuel Cell offers an experience on par with traditional gasoline vehicles.”
