After the rear wheel skirts, a common criticism of the Clarity by reviewers (heck, of most new Hondas) is the push button shifter. I have to admit it took me some time to get used to it. Now that I have, I prefer it to the typical automatic shift lever in my Subaru. I find that I can shift quickly without even looking and it's become so intuitive that a recent rental in a Toyota Camry gave me fits (its shift lever goes through unintuitive cogs). Most automatics are controlled electrically (the shift levers are just switches) so it makes sense that they are just buttons or symbols on a touchpad. What is your experience?
