The new plug-in hybrid (PHEV) from Honda, the Honda Clarity, is a chameleon of sorts, in that it adapts to your driving conditions. The main source of power of the Honda Clarity Plug-In Hybrid is the battery, which can go for 47 all-electric miles.
There is also an all-electric model and a hydrogen fuel cell variant of the Clarity that came before the plug-in hybrid. The advantage of the Honda PHEV is that it offers both an electric engine and conventional engine, along with the 17-kWh lithium-ion battery pack. The main electric motor is powered by the battery, and drives the front wheels. In most cases, the car is powered by the battery.
