From colors to features, safety ratings to price tags, you have a lot to consider when buying a new car. Fuel economy has long been one of those standard considerations; it’s great when you can purchase a new car knowing you’ll save money on fuel in the long run. Fuel economy also goes hand in hand with environmental impact, and that is becoming more and more important to many car buyers.
Luckily, Honda has some great alternative fuel models and hybrids to help you save money on fuel and protect the environment at the same time. Are you afraid you’ll be stuck at home waiting for your car to charge? Think again. These alternative fuel vehicles have come a long way in the last few years.

Honda Clarity Fuel Cell
The future is now! This sleek four-door vehicle comfortably seats five people, and you can drive about 366 miles after fueling. The Honda fuel cell converts hydrogen to electricity, allowing you to accelerate easily with no emissions. Meanwhile, you still have a spacious trunk, fine interior detailing, and the latest technology to make driving your new Honda Clarity Fuel Cell a smooth and intuitive experience. What’s best, fueling the Honda Clarity can take as little as five minutes!
Honda Accord Hybrid
You already love the Accord, and with the Accord Hybrid, you’ll get better mileage (up to 49 mpg!) with the two-motor system: one motor accelerates from a stop and the other starts the engine and charges that first motor. The 2017 Accord Hybrid features several improvements on the 2015 model:
- It’s faster.
- Horsepower is 212 vs. 196 in the 2015 model.
- It has a 758-mile range.
- Active Cruise Control comes standard.
- It has better steering and brakes.
- It has up-to-date smartphone integration.
If you’re wondering what might be next, you’re in luck: the 2018 Honda Accord Hybrid is on the way to our South Florida Honda Dealers this fall. Be sure to contact your closest Ft Lauderdale Honda dealer for release information.

Honda Fit EV
The Honda Fit EV comes with the top-notch comfort and safety features you expect from Honda. In fact, this compact hatchback has received the government’s top vehicle safety ratings and is fully electric. No gas, no emissions, and you can recharge in as few as three hours. You can also choose from three drive systems to customize your ride and maximize efficiency. The 2017 Fit is a beautiful car, but if you’d like to hold out until fall, you can drive away from one of our Miami Honda dealerships in the 2018 Honda Fit.
The Future of Honda Alternative Fuel Models
Soon you’ll have even more options when you choose a new alternative fuel Honda. The Clarity Electric, a 100% electric vehicle, will be arriving at our South Florida Honda Dealers this fall, too. It promises an 80% charge in just 30 minutes and a full charge in a little more than three hours.
The Honda Clarity Plug-In Hybrid isn’t far behind. You’ll be able to go 42 miles on electric power and emit zero emissions while enjoying an interior made with environmentally conscious materials and a wide range of features to enhance your comfort and safety.
