I had the pleasure of going to the huge State Fair of Texas in Dallas this weekend. This fair has been an annual event since around 1886, originally attracting a few thousand attendees yearly and now attracting some 2.2 million people over a 24-day run each Autumn. A big element of the annual fair is the well-attended Texas Auto Show. As a new owner of a Honda Clarity PHEV (June 2018), I walked through the auto show yesterday, found that Honda had its usual significant presence there, and wanted to talk "Clarity" with the Honda reps there. But, despite having a dozen or so shiny new Hondas to show off to the public, they managed to completely omit the Clarity from the show altogether. Having owned 3 different Accords over the years and personally having a very high opinion of the new Clarity as a marvel of engineering and economy, as well as performance and packaging, to me it was beyond the pale not to show -- much less feature -- the Clarity to a buying public of some 2+ million people threading through this auto show. (I have no idea if they showed or featured the Clarity at other car shows this year, but my suspicion is that they did not.) We read over and over again in this forum that the Honda dealers and their sales staff by and large have little product knowledge themselves about the Clarity. We also know that Honda USA has not robustly marketed this great vehicle either. The only sad conclusion I can draw is that the Honda engineers in Japan did a great job with Clarity PHEV, but the marketing side of Honda USA remains fully focused on pushing ICE Iron out the door.
