    Honest review of Japan $52k Honda Clarity PHEV from Motor Journalist Ishii Masamichi:

    Here's his conclusion (copied from "broken" English subtitle):

    "I think that is is probably the best car in Honda. It is a premium car type, a good car like a luxury car. It's comfortable to ride, not only comfortable but also steering stability, and it is a power train. This drivability is also very good because it is an electric motor car. Even a fine luxury car may not be enemy for this... Well, if you are a person who feels value... Although it is close to 6 million yen, I thought that it was worth buying. However, even if saying it is expensive, I think that this is probably because the manufacturer does not make money. In that sense it should quite profitable."

    AFAIK, it has a ChaDeMo port for Fast Charge.

    Saw a video from Electrified Journey Japan a few days ago on Youtube but seems he deleted it. He's a Nissan fan so he's dissing the Clarity a bit especially the price. But it looks like it has a 3rd port (in addition to the Level 1/2 charge port and gas port) that has DCQC in the back driver side (Japan right side)
