Acting as a halfway point between being a common hybrid and a fully electric car, the 2021 Honda Clarity Plug-In Hybrid is an important step forward in moving away from dependence on fossil fuels in the automotive industry. Since it is still occupying a fledgling corner of the automotive world, the Clarity Plug-In Hybrid is available in two trims for the 2021 model year.
If the Clarity Plug-In Hybrid sees enough success, future model years may feature more trims, but at this point, two is enough. These two trims are named as follows: “2021 Honda Clarity Plug-In Hybrid” and “2021 Honda Clarity Plug-In Hybrid Touring.” Both offer the same fuel-efficient plug-in performance and advanced hybrid technology, but other features differ. The chart below will review a few of the most important differences between the two, to aid shoppers in picking one or the other.
Feature Highlight 1
Feature Highlight 2
Feature Highlight 3
|2021 Honda Clarity Plug-In Hybrid||LED Headlights with Auto On/Off||Honda Sensing® Safety Suite|
Android Auto™ and Apple CarPlay® Integration
|2021 Honda Clarity Plug-In Hybrid Touring||Voice Recognition||Leather-Wrapped Steering Wheel and Leather-Trimmed Seating|
Honda Satellite-Linked Navigation system™
A simple way to explain the difference between the two would be to consider the base trim exactly that. It may be a base trim, so it isn’t as well outfitted as the Touring, but it still includes many modern conveniences, especially technological ones. The model doesn’t slack in terms of safety either, as the Honda Sensing® safety features work around the clock to keep everyone inside safe.
The 2021 Honda Clarity Plug-In Hybrid Touring puts luxury into the plug-in hybrid formula to make saving money on fuel feel all that much better. While leather might not be for everyone, the Touring trim will likely sell more than the base model thanks to its extra features.
