We purchased our new base model Clarity plug in Hybrid June 2018. We told the salesman we drive to FL for the winter, a total of 1,400 miles and we needed a fuel efficient vehicle to do this. He told us to start on electric and when depleted switch to HV charge to recharge the battery. I have experiments and found at no speed on HV charge does it recharge the battery at all. Don't expect full charge but I am talking not even one bar of juice. No one at dealership knows much about the operation of this car beyond plug it in get 47 miles then it goes to gas. Can anyone help since we are leaving shortly. I hope we were not sold a bill of goods.
