Any upgrades coming for 2020?

Does anyone know if there will be any improvements in the 2020 Clarity model? Or fix anything that needs fixing? I have seen a couple of short "You tube" videos that had no real commentary but just the pictures didn't show anything new. And will dealers get any of these new models over here in the east? (Georgia, Alabama, Tennessee).

Honda has not shipped Clarity to those or any other non-ZEV state since 2018. The 2019 model was only shipped to ZEV states and only at the very beginning of the year. Since then Honda has confirmed that they are currently now only shipping Clarity to California.

Honda has confirmed to prospective buyers in Canada that a 2020 model will be available but no other details or timeline have been given, but based on the low sales numbers and limited distribution I doubt if there will be any changes for model year 2020. Nothing for 2020 has been announced yet for the U.S. but assuming that Honda continues its current distribution strategy with Clarity it will only be available in California.

Yes, agreed @2002 the 2020 will remain the same without any changes.
Wait till December / January in the US to find any 2020 on the dealer lots.

Also finding that Honda seems to think only CA/OR buyers are the ones who will buy a Clarity.

In all other states, if you look at the price point just based on the sticker pricing, the Clarity is way up on top which sort of outprices them right off the bat.
It's only after the Honda incentives, ZEV/CARB/DLFC credits, and $7500 tax credit tha it starts to look good.

In CA, they are really looking good with gas prices in the $4 range.

I love mine - no gas used 5 days a week for commuting, saving me $60 / week in fuel costs.
