The 2018 Honda Clarity Electric car rolled into California and Oregon dealerships this week, but nobody can buy it.
It’s only available for lease for $199 a month for 36 months with $1,499 due at signing.
That figure reflects the $7,500 federal tax credit, which Honda finance will keep as part of the capitalized cost reduction of the lease.

The Clarity Electric, however, also qualifies for a $2,500 tax rebate in each of the states where it’s sold.
