Honda's second generation Clarity Hydrogen Fuel Cell Vehicle is a real winner with better range, more room and premium features. Although it will only be available in California at launch, this zero emission vehicle may be expanding its reach in the near future.
If you are a die-hard electric car fan or an ordinary car enthusiast, then it is a great time to be alive. The auto industry is going through a revolution that shortly will swamp our planet. Even though our estimates say that the breaking point will happen in 2023, when EVs will pass the moment of no return and start their dominance, but the 2018 that is just around the corner and the upcoming 2019 have already stored a great line up of electric cars and we are not only talking about Model 3. Already existing models like Leaf and BMW i3 have gone through serious renovations, while manufacturers like Audi, Jaguar and Bentley have brand new vehicles up their sleeves. Some of these cars are rather affordable, while others were built only for deep pockets, but nevertheless be sure that all of them are groundbreaking in their own way and deserve your closest attention! Cars featured in this video: Nissan Leaf 2.0: nissanusa.com/electric-cars/2018-leaf/ Leaf 2.0 has an electric motor that produces 147 horses and 236 pound-feet of instant torque, that convert to 0-60 acceleration under 10 seconds. The new model delivers solid 150 miles of range and fast charging up to 88 miles in 30 minutes with a 40 kwh battery. Porsche Mission E: porsche.com/microsite/mission-e/international.aspx It is believed that this car will come with dual electric motors producing combined 600 horsepower, the range was set at 312 miles, 0-60 under 3.5 seconds and the top speed over 155 mph. Mercedes EQC: mercedes-benz.com/en/mercedes-benz/next/e-mobility/concept-eq-mobility-revisited/ Potential buyers are supposed to place approximately $2500 deposit and only one car per person could be reserved. The final product will have the same dual motor powertrain, at least 400 horsepower, 300 miles of one charge range and 0-60 under 5 seconds. BMW i3s: bmw.com/en/all-models/bmw-i/i3/2017/bmw-i3s.html The i3 gets equipped with 33.2 kWh batteries allowing 180 miles of range. While the regular powertrain still delivers 170 horses and 184 lb-ft of torque, the buyers of 2018 i3 sport can expect improved performance courtesy of a 183 horse power and 199 lb-ft of torque motor. Bentley EXP12 Speed 6e: bentleymotors.com/en/models/concept-cars/exp12-speed-6e.html We can expect outstanding range from this EV, sufficient enough for grand touring. EXP 12 Speed 6e will support fast inductive charging, so there will be no need for long cords and sockets, you will just park the car and wait until the battery replenishes. Thunder Power Sedan and SUV: news.tpev.com/en/news The tech specs of this car include a 575 horsepower electric powertrain with 410 lb-ft of torque, 0-60 acceleration of 4 seconds and the top speed of 155 miles. On the impressive spectrum of this car’s characteristics lies its range. Mini Electric: press.bmwgroup.com/united-kingdom/article/detail/T0273884EN_GB/the-mini-electric-concept?language=en_GB The installed powertrain will be represented by a synchronous electric motor with 150 horse power and 184 lb-ft of torque output. The range is estimated to be 187 miles, however, this is a speculation based on the current BMW batteries, so hopefully by 2019 they will come up with a more advanced power source. Audi e-tron: audi.com/en/innovation/futuredrive/e-tron_quattro.html This crossover will have 500 horsepower produced by three of its electric motors and a 95 kWh lithium battery to provide good city and highway performance, while managing to go up to at least 250 miles on a charge. Fisker E-motion: fiskerinc.com The company is already accepting first reservations $2000 apiece. The base price is $129,900 for the car with standard all-wheel drive, 400+ mile range, incredible 9 minutes to 125 miles fast charging and full autonomy hardware and software. Jaguar i-Pace: jaguar.com/jaguar-range/i-pace-concept-car/index.html With two electric motors that can produce 400 horsepower and 516 pound-feet of torque, Jaguar I-Pace can sprint from 0 to 62 miles per hour under 4 seconds.

Enjoyed checking out the upcoming all electric version of the Honda Clarity Electric. You can sign up for to check it out as well at hondaclarityevent.com As we have the Clarity Fuel Cell I wanted to see what the differences are and overall there's not many as far as exterior and interior design. Range is approx 89 with Fast Charging standard which will give you 80% charge in 30 minutes. The backseats fold down unlike in the Fuel Cell version. The opening between trunk and backseat area is quite small however. See video. The car takes off like a rocket. A light front end (engine compartment only about half full (see video) and lots of torque equals burnouts galore even at 30mph plus. This Electric version seems more nimble and lighter than our Fuel Cell. Our acceleration is more fluid and not throw you back in seat like pure electrics with lots of torque. Also the doors seem heavier in our Fuel Cell. If you can make the shorter range work, as far as the quality of the vehicle goes, you won't be disappointed. Will be lease only. As of 6/11/17 at 12:30p the lease price will be $269.00 per month for 36 months, 20k a year, 1999 down including first months payment + tax and license. Car qualifies for $2500.00 state rebate in California and HOV access.
