The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
6.0
8.3
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2017 Honda Clarity Fuel Cell steps up to a mid-size form, drives like a battery-electric car, and earns a range rating of 365 miles—but you're still tethered to a hydrogen fueling network. The 2017 Tesla Model S is unlike any other car on the road for several reasons—good and bad.
