THE HYUNDAI IONIQ ELECTRIC CAR IN THE NEWS
2017 Week 9 - Honda Clarity no match for the Hyundai Ionic
Honda is setting itself up for failure with this week’s announcement that the much-anticipated mid-sized 2018 Honda Clarity EV will only have an 80-mile range. Despite being a mid-size sedan, with the obvious space benefit it brings, the car will not even compete with smaller compact sedans and hatchbacks, such as the 2017 BMW i3 (114 miles), Nissan Leaf (107 miles) and the VW e-Golf (125 miles). The Honda Clarity EV’s direct competitors in the $30,000 to $35,000 price range, the Hyundai Ionic (124miles) and Tesla Model 3 (200 miles), will put it to shame.
