Honda will debut the 2014 Honda Accord Hybrid this fall and it will get 49 miles per gallon beating out the Toyota Camry Hyrbid, which reportedly gets 43 mpg. The 2014 Honda Accord Hybrid will be available on dealership lots in October, including Apple Valley Honda, Northwest Honda, and Sims Honda!
According to this article, “Powered by Honda’s new hybrid powertrain, the two-motor SPORT HYBRID Intelligent Multi Mode Drive gives the driver three options: EV, Hybrid, and Engine. In EV mode, which only functions at low speeds and medium to high cruising speeds, the Accord utilizes its lithium-ion battery to run the car solely on electricity. Hybrid mode combines the 124-kilowatt electric motor with the 2.0L DOHC i-VTEC Atkinson-cycle 4-cylinder engine to generate quick acceleration while maintaining great fuel economy. Unlike the other modes, pure Engine mode sends the power straight to the front wheels. The Accord Hybrid is reported to achieve 49/45/47 MPG, setting a new, high standard for fuel economy in the midsize sedan class.”
With the Honda Accord reputation of dependability, reliability, and safety, consumers will have confidence in the Honda hybrid technology will take them further…for less money!
