I still have over a year left on my Clarity Electric lease. It is a fantastic vehicle and it would be great to keep it beyond the 3-year lease term.

Honda Fit EV owners have reported elsewhere that they were able to continue on the original lease terms for another 24 months when their original 36-month lease ended. Hopefully Clarity Electric owners will have the same option.

With the earliest owners reaching the end of their 36-month lease, has anyone talked with Honda about extending their lease? Please post about your experience and what the terms are of the offered extension, if any.

You may want to look at the VW ID.4 instead. Honda appears to view the Clarity as a compliance & technology car only. Since you have a year left VW may have the ID.4 available when your lease ends.

I think due to the pandemic the last 6 months, most car manufacturers have offered to extend leases because a lot people are not keen on having a test drive of a new car with a stranger sales person....

If OP's lease were ending today I suspect you're right. However, OP said his lease ends in a year.

Honda offered lease extensions (at a reduced price) on the Fit EV. I suspect they will do the same with the Clarity Electric. Both are (were) lease only with no option to purchase. Keeping them on the road a couple more years costs them almost nothing, but brings in revenue.

I've got about a year left as well, and will be looking at options next spring.

Even if they don't reduce the price it seems like the BEV lease was a pretty good deal already and probably worth extending. Even more so if they reduce it.
