Have you been able to see and/or test drive a Clarity? They are hard to come by outside of California which is where Honda ships most of the inventory. Some dealers outside of California are willing to order one, but it can take months to arrive. A better bet is to check online on dealer websites, or use a search website like Cars.com, and if you expand your search to neighboring states you increase your chance of finding one. Another option is to purchase used if you can't find anyone willing to sell below MSRP. Although if you buy new the Clarity qualifies for the $7,500 federal tax credit, although you have to have at least that much tax liability during the year of purchase to receive the full credit. But if you are able to get the full credit then a used Clarity would need to be substantially discounted since you don't get a tax credit when buying used.I am thinking about buying a Clarity. I currently own a 2013 Leaf. A Clarity would be a big upgrade from a Leaf and also PHEV instead of BEV.
