With the cost of gasoline seemingly always on the rise, it's good to know that the helpful people at Honda have a solution!

We are shining the SoCal Spotlight brightly on the all-new 2018 Honda Clarity Plug-In Hybrid. The Clarity Plug-In Hybrid offers the benefits of an electric car with the freedom of a hybrid.

It uses a high-capacity battery for longer all-electric driving and, like a traditional hybrid, uses a gas-powered engine as a back-up for the electric runs low.

"The 2018 Honda Clarity Plug in Hybrid is all electric when you want it and gasoline when you need it," said Natalie Kumaratne from Honda.

It's 47 all-electric miles in a single charge, and it charges in just two and a half hours. Best of all, with it being a plug-in hybrid, it totally alleviates dreaded range anxiety, meaning if you run out of charge, the gasoline engine automatically kicks in.

The Clarity Plug-In Hybrid can save you time and money with its flexibility and day to day savings. With the 47 all-electric range, many commuters can drive on electric power alone, only needing to fill up the tank for longer drives. The Clarity also conveniently can be charged home with a standard 120-volt outlet, and even more quickly with a 240-volt charger. You can also take advantage of the thousands of charging stations across the country.

And talk about spacious: The 2018 Honda Clarity Plug-In Hybrid has a spacious interior with seating for five adults and eco-conscious materials giving it a sophisticated and stylish feel. But one of the best features of owning a Honda Clarity Plug-In Hybrid is that owners are eligible for up to a $7,500 tax credit through federal rebate programs. The Clarity also offers HOV eligibility and charger rebates.

The 2018 Honda Clarity Plug-In Hybrid really does have something for everyone. For more information go to
