EV Charge range

Sun Jul 21, 2019 7:28 pm

I'm the new owner of a 2018 Honda Clarity. Honda purports that the EV charge range is 47.5 miles, fully charged. We regularly fully charge to between 50 and 57 miles. Any idea on the discrepancy between advertised and estimated fully charged range?

The range reported by Honda is based on a specific set of tests (as dictated by the EPA) performed under laboratory conditions.

Different driving styles, speed, weather and other factors will all influence the range an EV can get.

Enjoy the "bonus" range while the weather is good. Not sure where yo live, but colder winter range will almost definitely put the range below the 47 miles listed.

If you want to see the application with the actual test results:

Note that the actual test results are de-rated by 30% to arrive at the EPA range numbers (to better reflect real world conditions).
