If there is one constant in New England, it’s traffic. Especially around major cities like Boston, Hartford, Portland and Providence. More and more drivers are looking to car makers to offer eco-friendly options. From commuters to soccer moms, no one likes spending more money on gas, making an extra trip to fill up or standing out in the snow, rain or freezing cold to gas up. Wouldn’t it be nice if you could fuel your car in the warm comfort of your garage?
Join A Girls Guide to Cars and Honda at the New England International Auto Show, January 11-15 at the Boston Convention & Exhibition Center, and see all the amazing options offered to consumers. You’ll see how you can spend less money on fuel, contribute to environmental conservation and you might even attend the show for free (keep reading–we have tickets to give away!).
Want the Confidence of a Gas Engine but the Benefits of a Plug in? Honda Has Listened!
This year at the Boston Auto show, Honda will showcase its new Clarity Plug-in Hybrid. The Clarity is a gas/electric hybrid that will excite visitors who have an interest in spending less time at the gas pump and being gentle to our environment.
The electric + gas engine gets 47 miles on a charge–enough for all those daily trips like the commute to work, school and the gym. Then, when battery power runs out, the gas engine kicks in, getting nearly 300 miles on a tank of gas. The transition is seamless; you’d never know you went from using the electric motor to the gas engine. This means that you can make all those short trips and a massive road trip in the 2018 Honda Clarity Plug-In Hybrid, a huge bonus added to a long list of benefits:
- Price starts at $33,400
- Deceleration paddles on the steering wheel feed engine power back into the battery
- 8-inch display audio touch screen
- Remote start with climate pre-conditioning–great for really hot and really cold days
- Leather-trimmed seating and leather-wrapped steering wheel
- Honda satellite-linked navigation
- Honda Sensing suite of safety features are standard, including: Collision mitigation braking system, road departure mitigation system, adaptive cruise control with low-speed follow, lane keeping assist system
Honda has put a lot of thought into the Clarity Plug-In. Safety and comfort are as much a priority as helping customers do their daily driving in a more sustainable way.
Why Should I come to the Auto Show?
This is the biggest show in New England and auto makers will be showcasing their newest models. Both imported and domestic vehicles will be on display. There is something for every budget and lifestyle. It’s a great opportunity to pop some hoods, inspect interiors, and maybe even sit in a dream car or two.
This is the Place to Shop For Car
There is no better place to car shop than an auto show. You can freely inspect cars, compare models and prices, and ask questions from experts. Take photos and compare models across a brand or brand-to-brand. Start to calculate the cost of your next purchase and find the car that is the right fit for your budget and lifestyle. Even if you are not a serious shopper, the Boston Auto Show is fun for car buffs and the entire family!
