    Clarity is a harder model to spot. The only obvious giveaways are the rear wheel well and the front L shaped LED lights. I don't know how many times my kids have said, "Look a another Clarity" getting my hopes up, only to tell them that is an Accord or Civic... or worse yet a Crosstour. Anyways, I've seen one in my neighborhood, all electric, and saw another on the road yesterday. I'm sure it will become more popular eventually but for now I'm happy explaining to people my car. Showing the Honda app and turning on my AC before I start my car though has gotten a lot of "Wows"
  2. Saw a twin (Modern Steel) with New York plates driving through Stamford, CT yesterday morning. Pretty sure they saw me waiting at stop sign to pull out on to the road too.

    The L-shaped running lights are a easy to spot marker.

    After watching for one since I got mine in May, I finally saw another Clarity. It was during our first long trip in the car - on the NY Thruway south of Albany. Ironically, I was at the gas pump. I waved but they did not see me.

    I have a black Touring and work in Seattle (ryd994--maybe mine is the random one you saw on a Seattle street!). I've only seen a couple around Seattle (both white). But I saw several while on a road trip in Southern California. I think they're more popular there (probably for the HOV access).

    It took 11 months of ownership, but I finally spotted another Clarity . . . as I flew 1900 miles east and drove a rental Camry on I-287 in New Jersey. A beautiful burgundy paint job. He was slidin' through rush hour traffic very smoothly.

    I've seen 2 or 3, two black and one white. Not sure if the black was the same one or not since I saw it going both ways on a commute one day :D

    You must live in Torrance, CA, right?

    Found out about the Clarity a couple months ago after originally looking at Niros. Had been looking for one on the road since, but never had any luck. Then, on the way to pick up my Green one yesterday evening I saw the same model alongside me on the highway. It almost looked black in the dreary weather, but closer inspection showed it to be the green with a little bit of pinstriping.

    Close, I live in Orange County Ca, sorry if anyone took offence with my comment, I'm not trying to be disparaging, just that in So. Cal. with all the traffic and freeways, I see a lot of cars. I just found it funny that people were not seeing any around, when I see them all the time. Heck, I even have two in my garage!!

    I was kind of surprised at the difference, but I like the actual color better than the representation on the Honda site.

    Just saw a Moonlit Forest on the highway in NJ when leaving Newark Aiport earlier this week. Tried to speed up to wave but our lanes split before I could. The first one I have seen since owning mine.

    A "blessing" (or herd) of unicorns sighted. Imagine seeing 3 white Clarity's together on Hwy 404 commuting into the city this morning. Me, the guy right in front of me and the 3rd one crawling along in the left lane.

    I have never seen one in Toronto. I have had two sightings along a quiet country road between Chelmsford and Acton, MA.

    Wish I could have joined you in the 404 with my white one. There are only 1000 in all of Canada so you saw most of them ! :)

    We're just back from a 1,000+ mi roadtrip to Maine. Found a number of free L2 chargers (thank you Maine!) to occasionally fully charge. Other times just kept it in HV mode. Was charging at a college and put my sign in window as I do: "feel free to disconnect if green charging light is off." Returned to car and found a Clarity beside me that had followed my direction. I wonder if I was their first Clarity sighting. Hey, if you were the one charging next to me in So Portland early this week--hi!

    Not quite dime a dozen around here, but there are a lot. Actually a lot of EVs in San Francisco Bay Area, home of Tesla. I've yet to score a free EV charge anywhere because they are always all taken. At least I don't need to plug in.

    Clarities are getting rapidly more common in my area--it's a small town (<20K people), but there are several on the road, the local Honda dealership has seven or eight on the lot, and the display car out front of the Costco one town over today was, surprisingly, a Clarity. Are other Costcos putting those out front, too?

    But what's funny to me is that there's a guy who lives a bit up the hill from me who got an identical color Clarity at almost the exact same time early this year, so I've been passing my car's twin on my way home or just after leaving on a regular basis for the past six months. We wave at each other in passing, but I've never actually seen him outside the car. My wife and I did, however, mistake his car for ours at the supermarket until we realized why the trunk wasn't unlocking...
