Hello to all EV Lovers.

Just got myself Clarity of mind.
Drove 150 miles so far. Zen like state of mind. Amazing car all the way.
Will try to share my experience on the road.
Appreciate all the hints and tricks.
Wishing a wonderful journey to everyone.

tried passing anyone yet?

I have read several places that the Clarity has good torque but has a hard time passing on the open highway Do you find that a problem? What do you like the best about your new car and what is you least favorite thing?

It is very quick from 0-30 or so when it has charge. It is sluggish without charge, so it depends your driving distances. For me, I make 2 round trips per day, one is 50 miles, the other is 12 miles. I have a 240v charger at work and have put 6,000 miles on only 20 gallons of gas (avg. 300 mpg so far although the dash only goes up to 199.9 mpg).

Sport mode will use both gas and electric at the same time. So if you have battery power you should be able to pass on the highway fine. On gasoline alone it would not pass as well as you might like.

For me, this car rocks. My favorite thing is the balance of electric and gasoline backup so there is no anxiety and you could drive this car cross-country. I'm glad I did not pay for a bigger battery because I don't need one. My least favorite thing is probably that the center console is kind of a waste of space and I wish it was a hatchback for more storage in the trunk area.

I highly recommend this car!
