Welcome to the forum. And aside from maybe using it to get up to merging/passing speeds on the highway, I doubt most owners will spend much time in it.
Not yet an owner, one of the quibbles I have with the quirky engineering decisions on the Clarity is the way that regen braking is implemented. I know that one -pedal driving is difficult with PHEVs in general, but the fact that it is only in Sport mode that I can retain the setting has me thinking that using Sport is the way to go. Only have about 30 minutes driving one so my information is shallow
The issue is that the regen mode does not carry over from one braking event to the next EXCEPT when in sport mode, or at least I have readTrying to understand your issue. Can you be more specific? Regular or H/V mode offers plenty of power meaning it can accelerate and pass in a reasonable manner as long as you understand it's designed for great economy and not high performance sedan track times.

https://insideevs.com/2018-honda-clarity-phev-test-drive-review/Ok, maybe I'm just thick, but still trying to figure out what you mean by 'one pedal' operation and 'not carrying over from one braking event to the another. Personally I've only used sport mode to try it out and it seemed to work fine. As most of 'my' driving is inside of 10 mile destinations near home, I leave it in E/V mode unless going further and/or on the highway then I select H/V. Other than doing that it's just normal driving as in any other car.
