Are you a fan of plug in hybrids? Electric vs Hydrogen future?

PimpNet Crew says:

Driving in Arizona with British Columbia plates?

Budi Anto says:

i rather have cigarate ligther than normal 1.2amp usb, so i can plug qualcomm certifield quick charge 3.0 adapter.

Ilya Feldman says:

Say 'hello' to the worlds ugliest plug in hybrid.

Machtyn says:

I think this is the car want most as my next car. Only problem is I can't afford it. Hopefully, after I sell my house and some investing, I can get it in a couple years.
Hopefully, by that time, it'll have plenty of USB charging.

Jay Pearce says:

My new Clarity s way different from yours. I have SiriusXM and the total cost was only $37000. I'm still getting used to it but so far I really like it.

striker1211 says:

I wish auto manufacturers would include FEWER USB ports in their cars and give me more 12V ports. Phone chargers have come a long way since 2012 even and with QualComm QuickCharge you can charge a phone from 0 to 80 in 30 minutes, but not using a standard 500ma (or even 2.4A) built-in USB port…. Buy a $10 adapter every 3 years as technology improves instead of relying on car manufacturers to know what technology will be required for the next 15 years of a car's life.

I think the car has a nice design

BMWGTM5's Channel. says:

A petrol head's worst nightmare.

gp2003gt says:

I watched this video when it first came out, mid-february ordered a 2018 Nissan Leaf that I cancelled after Rapidgate started, ordered a Clarity plug in instead, thanks guys.

Oscar Favela says:

11:50 Its probably not suede, it's alcantera which is like suede but it is waterproof. They use it in most cars for that reason.

guy gooch says:

No white exterior and black interior? Why??? but not a deal breaker

Coleen West says:

Ugly car. Beautiful scenery.

Omair Siddiqui says:

dad just bought a new clarity touring and it has power seats

Zishawn Malik says:

Miss me with that gay shit. If its not a 2016/2017 accord, don't @ me Honda

Seriously though, everything about this car is amazing (especially the interior, which is rare in Hondas), but the back half is ridiculously gross

Eric Pettersen says:

Better looking than the Toyota Hydrogen thing haha!

Remington Lanenga says:

I have been watching videos on the Clarity for days. This is by far the most in depth and informative video I have found. A lot of great material here. Thanks for sharing!

M Hadi says:

$13,000 rebate in Ontario, not $14,000.

Kenny Giovani Watono says:

The front looks so good! Simple yet aggressive and fresh. Maybe Acura (which is supposed to be the luxury version of Honda) should learn from this. Especially with their ILX and TLX which look like someone with too much botox in their lower lip.

The rear wheel covers are a bit of a disappointment, in my opinion.

S W says:

How can they make the rear part so ugly and not notice it ? Lol I hope no one buys this car so they can re design it. I thought we r so behind on making ugly cars but I guess Honda isn’t.

CARL WongTW says:

Looks pretty dam cool, more efficient than 330e. How's the performance. Insight III looks similar to this but slightly better.

TM says:

Big ass acura logo? No good. Big ass honda logo? Sure

Adeel Zafar says:

Love the review guys!
