Today, Honda announced that the 2017 Clarity EV sedan, which is the company’s latest generation all-electric vehicle in the lineup, will launch in August of this year and it will boast support for Apple CarPlay. And for good measure, and as is par for the course, Android Auto is also supported.
Unfortunately Honda wasn’t clear on what size of touchscreen will be installed in the vehicle.
It’s also worth noting that the Clarity is designed for in-city commute, mostly, due to it only having a full range of 89 miles on a full charge. Honda says the battery can be fully charged in just three hours by way of a 240-volt charger using DC fast charging.
Honda is also playing coy with the full price of the new EV sedan. It does say that a lease option starts at $269 per month for 36 months, though, with an initial deposit of at least $1,730, and the additional taxes and fees.
Honda took its time to support Apple CarPlay, but now the company appears to be supporting the in-car system on a regular basis at this point.
Do you have Apple CarPlay in your car?
