Plug-in Hybrid Electrics done right have all the benefit, power, and range of gas in an electric car: 3.5 cents/(electric)mile with no range anxiety vs. an all gas sedan that gets 33mpg: 8.6 cents/(gas) mile ($2.84/gal regular). When this PEHV does use gas only, it gets 42MPG. However, it recovers most of its energy and uses electric preferentially changing the gas MPG closer to 82-99MPG in long commuter traffic conditions. I¿m not a rally car driver, but driving in packs of people ¿jockeying¿ for position in traffic means lots of Atlanta traffic lane changes. This car meets Atlanta traffic needs with astonishing agility, comfort, and efficiency. It preferentially chooses electric to motor itself forward at highway speeds. Going down hill, all under the hood is silent as it rapidly recharges its impressive battery power. Much of the ¿range¿ used with the accelerator is regenerated every time this happens. When ¿turbo-level¿ acceleration is required, the ¿sport¿ mode with its thrillingly tight suspension kicks in, and the car is in the lane you want. Where paddle shifters are located on many cars, this car has something more like a Peloton Bike electromagnetic resistance control system. Left ¿paddle¿ increases resistance, and right decreases. While resistance is happening, the batteries ¿super charge¿, and the car slows down, like ¿downshifting¿, or braking. No wear and tear on the transmission, and no brake pad or break ¿brushes¿ rubbing. Instead of having a car, this is more like having a ¿transport personal assistant¿ and high tech energy management system. It ¿reads¿ the road and traffic conditions, chooses the most efficient use of energy source: battery, gas, kinetic, or electromagnetic resistance, and produces an arrival time that matches my little turbo VW that was smashed two and a half weeks ago. For that little car alone, gasoline was running close to $7,000/year. This car might reach $875/year. One commute I have is 103 miles. The estimated ¿range¿ remaining on the car was 193 miles. When I got to the house, the estimated ¿range¿ remaining was 164.7 miles. This is what I¿m talking about with the energy management system of this car. It¿s not that the range was calculated badly. It simply gives the predicted ¿range¿ at any given moment if NO recharging were to occur, or if I chose to drive in exclusively gasoline mode (ran the batteries to zero, then ran on gas alone). The car isn¿t really just a car. It¿s a full sized sedan that can seat a family of 5 adults comfortably (huge back seat), runs the air conditioner, radio, and heated seats (in winter), and manages to have a reported cross country range of 360 miles (on full charge, full 7 gallon tank of gas), but in real world driving, is getting far more in range than that. I¿m averaging 2.2 gallons of gasoline for every 165 miles driven. This includes highway and neighborhood driving. 500+ miles. Commuting to Downtown Atlanta and back uses zero gasoline. Because it charges in 1.5 to 2 hours in the middle of the night, there is a price break on the electricity it takes to charge the batteries. I¿ve read lots of reviews on this car, and almost everyone calls it their ¿favorite car they¿ve ever driven.¿ Probably, because this car seems to intuitively ¿understand¿ what the driver needs and wants, and then produces it without a lot of work on the part of the driver. So you are left enjoying the road and the drive for what it is, while the car takes care of the work of managing itself in traffic and on open road without a lot of range anxiety. Why don¿t you see a lot of them on the road? Most are sold in California and Oregon. The few that are available for purchase in the rest of the country work exactly like the other Honda hybrids, so the technicians are capeable of servicing these cars. The thing is, the sales people don¿t completely understand what they have in their possession, so the car sits on the lot ¿untouched¿ until someone comes looking for a Clarity. The MPG on the Honda Hybrid, Insight advertises 48MPG to the Clarity 41MPG gasoline engine, but they don¿t understand that the electric motor of the Clarity is the predominant choice of this car¿s motion. This changes the MPG average to 82-99MPG averages depending on where you are driving it. AND it¿s a full sized sedan that is so agile, it feels like you are driving something completely different than a little rattle-trap economy hybrid.Read more reviews at Cars.com
