Re: BEST EV Range after FULL CHARGE

Steve75, The more I think about it, I don't think you got 58 all EV miles. You may have been fooled by the 2bars of EV (the minimum always maintained by program).

Re: BEST EV Range after FULL CHARGE

EV range is similar to MPG of gas: city driving will get fewer miles to the full charge than a smooth ride on a highway. The car cannot predict how you will drive, so it predicts based on your recent driving. My predicted EV range can drop to 40 after stop-n-go driving on SF hills; after a long driv...

Re: Driving Strategy: When to Use ECO, HV, etc.

For the best description I’ve found: http://news.honda.com/newsandviews/article.aspx?id=10081-en I’m not an engineer either, but this is my take so far: The Clarity can run as a serial hybrid (all EV until runs out then gas) or a parallel hybrid (battery supplements gas), the later is like the Accor...
