The EV version of this is truly embarrassing.

Seriously!

How does something this ugly get approved? By contrast, the Insight is quite nice looking, in a traditional reserved (old school Honda kinda way)...why anyone would by the Clarity over the Insight is beyond me.

The EV version has an 89 mile range.

That doesn't fix ugly though. If range is important, get the Volt, a MUCH nicer looking car, with comparable range and a fraction of the price.

Volt, Bolt, or Leaf are all far better choices than the Honda Aztek.

It looks quite a bit like the new Civic except it doesn't have the open crab-claw taillights.
How did the new Civic get approved?

Even better question: How did the new Accord get approved?

I don't know how well it's selling, but this past week was the first time I saw a new Accord. I wasn't close to it and initially thought I was looking at a new Civic until I saw the telltale chrome strip at the top of the side windows and the way it has a bigger point on the end.
As for the Civic, they are everywhere here in Montreal. The Accord? I think Honda has a bit of a problem on their hands.

It's selling OK-ish but the downturn in sedan sales couple with Honda going "ZDX" on the Accord has not played out well for them.

Toyota is laughing.
