Top specs, facts and figures

General info

1.Is a hybrid car
Honda Clarity Fuel Cell (2017)

Hybrid cars run on a mixture of petrol (gasoline) and electric power. They offer several benefits over traditional petrol-powered cars. For example they produce less CO2 emissions, and due to their fuel efficiency they are often cheaper to run.

2. longer drivetrain warranty (km)

100000km

The drivetrain warranty covers parts of the car such as the engine, transmission, driveshaft etc. This is usually longer than the basic warranty. It lasts either a certain number of years or amount of kilometres driven.

3. longer basic warranty (km)

60000km

The basic warranty of a car covers all aspects other than parts which are subject to normal wear and tear, such as windscreen wipers and brake pads. It lasts either a certain number of years or amount of kilometres driven.

Mitsubishi Lancer GT (2014)

96561km

4. smaller turn radius

11.7m

The turn radius indicates the smallest circular turn a car can make. With a smaller turn radius it is easier to perform a U-turn in one attempt instead of having to reverse back and forth in order to turn around.

5.Has front-wheel drive
Honda Clarity Fuel Cell (2017)

Front-wheel drive is the most common type of drivetrain and offers several advantages. It is cheaper to manufacture (reducing the cost of the vehicle) and also lighter which helps improve fuel economy. Due to having the weight of the engine over the drive wheels it also benefits from increased traction.

6. longer drivetrain warranty (years)

5yrs

The drivetrain warranty covers parts of the car such as the engine, transmission, driveshaft etc. This is usually longer than the basic warranty. It lasts either a certain number of years or amount of kilometres driven.

6. further range

589km

The maximum distance an electric or hybrid car can travel on electric only, from a full charge (EPA-estimated driving range).

Best

Tesla Roadster

Features

1.Has a rear-view camera
Honda Clarity Fuel Cell (2017)

A rear-view camera (also known as a back-up camera) provides a view of behind the vehicle, helping to prevent accidents. It is particularly useful in vehicles with large blind spots such as pickup trucks.

2.Has smart key as standard

3.Has regenerative braking
Honda Clarity Fuel Cell (2017)

Hybrids and electric cars use regenerative braking, which captures the kinetic energy produced by braking and converts it into electricity. This then charges the battery, effectively increasing the car’s fuel efficiency.

4.Has in-car system
Honda Clarity Fuel Cell (2017)

An in-car system (eg. Ford SYNC, Apple CarPlay) gives you extra functionality, such as navigation, taking phone calls (when linked to your smartphone) and controlling music.
