2014 Honda Accord Plug-in Makes it Hard to Empty the Gas Tank

The 2014 Honda Accord comes in several  models, including the 2014 Honda Accord Plug-in which wows owners because of its advanced technology that means you’re stopping for gas far less than any of your neighbors.

In fact, one estimate based on common driving habits has owners only stopping for gas nine times per year!

“If you are a heavy commuter or even someone who just needs a car to get around town, the 2014 Honda Accord Plug-in will save you big time in gasoline costs and the time spent at the pump,” said Keith Hofkamp, general manager at Sims Honda dealership in Burlington. “Everyone wants to save money and time. The 2014 Honda Accord Plug-in lets you do both like no other vehicle on the market.”

Depending on your range and/or performance needs, there are three ways to drive the 2014 Honda Accord Plug-in: electric only, hybrid and fuel-only modes.

According to this article, “For example, even with some long trips added, the test car averaged 54.1 miles per gallon with a mix of all-electric driving plus city/highway on the gasoline engine. In fact, the federal government’s www.fueleconomy.gov website estimated the tester would only need to stop at the gas station about nine times in a year if driven at its current pattern.”

“If your highest priority is the amount of gasoline your vehicle consumes, then you need to come check out the 2014 Honda Accord Plug-in,” said Hofkamp.

Honda Commits to the Expansion of Hybrid Vehicle Offerings in the U.S.

  • Honda product strategy includes advancement of Earth Dreams™ Technology powertrains, including innovative two-motor hybrid system
  • Strategy will include changes to existing lineup of environmental vehicles

Honda is reinforcing its commitment to a clear product strategy focused on further advancing fuel-efficient and alternative-fuel vehicle technologies that are better aligned with customer needs and that strengthen the company’s U.S. sales momentum.

Keyed to the continued rollout of a new lineup of Earth Dreams™ Technology engines, transmissions and electro-motive technologies, the strategy will be executed over the next three to four years and will include changes to the Honda lineup of advanced technology environmental vehicles, including the Honda Insight. The U.S. model Insight will be available at Honda dealerships nationwide through the end of the year, with production scheduled to end in summer 2014.

Honda’s hybrid product direction in the U.S. will move forward with greater focus on expanded application of the innovative two-motor hybrid system. The two-motor system was introduced on the 2014 Accord Plug-In Hybrid and powers the EPA-rated 50 mpg city Accord Hybrid, which is the most fuel-efficient rating for a 5-passenger sedan in America.

“No manufacturer has more experience with electromotive technologies than Honda and we are committed to applying our expertise to a wide range of products in the coming years,” said Michael Accavitti, senior vice president of auto operations at American Honda. “Our hybrid vehicle strategy will focus on new models aimed at delivering the class-leading fuel economy and performance our customers’ desire in segments that represent significant growth opportunities.”

The second generation Insight is the most affordable mass-produced hybrid vehicle on the market with a MSRP starting at $18,7251, and an EPA fuel economy ratings of 41/44/42 city/highway/combined2. It was introduced in the spring of 2009 and offered a unique blend of fuel-efficient hybrid performance, 5-door hatchback practicality, top safety ratings and a host of user-friendly features, including the first application of the Honda-exclusive ECO Assist™, a sophisticated feedback system that uses an adaptive color display to indicate overall driving efficiency. Long recognized as an affordable and practical hybrid vehicle choice for customers, the Insight was named a ‘Greenest Vehicle’ by the American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy (ACEEE) for four consecutive years and a ‘Top Choice’ by Edmunds.com.

2014 Honda Accord Hybrid: Worth the Investment

The Honda Accord Hybrid gets the best gas mileage of any car on the road. True, the 2014 Honda Accord Hybrid costs about $3,000 more than your regular 2014 Accord, but with mind-blowing gas mileage, it’s worth the initial up-front investment.

Honda Insight is Great Alternative to Toyota Prius C

In this very thorough (and long) article, the author does a very honest comparison of the Honda Insight Hybrid and Toyota Prius C hybrid. We’ll skip to the end for you: “If you’re looking for a new hybrid that’ll save you money as well as gas, the Insight’s definitely worth checking out.”

The Honda Insight is definitely one of the more affordable hybrid vehicles on the market and, depending on what you’re looking for in a hybrid, could be the best fit for you. For example, one of the features that sets the Honda Insight apart from other hybrids is that it actually gets better gas mileage with highway driving than city driving, which is opposite of most hybrids.

“For someone who does a lot of freeway driving, that’s a pretty important difference between the Honda Insight and other hybrid vehicles,” said Tony Cary, general manager at Northwest Honda in Bellingham. “If you’re a freeway commuter and you want the best gas mileage with the least environmental impact, the Honda Insight might be the better hybrid for you.”

Another difference between the Insight and Prius (and, as the author points out, all Hondas versus Toyotas), is the superior handling and drivability. “Handling – especially cornering – is pretty good, though. As hybrids go, anyhow.This is probably because the Insight is aHonda – and Hondas (all of them) have more athletic responses than Toyotas. The steering feels quicker and less vague and the suspension’s calibrations are firmer, which ties the car down better when you dive into a curve at a speed above the typically dumbed-down speed limit. There’s less heaving (that sensation of weight hurling itself toward the outside of the curve) and also less early-onset tire squeal (a Prius characteristic).”

And there’s no need to sacrifice good looks for the sake of efficiency with the Honda Insight. If you want to help save the environment while saving yourself some money on gas without screaming it at everyone you drive past, then the Honda Insight is a great option.

Four Honda Vehicles Earn Recognition on ACEEE’s List of “Greenest” and “Greener” Vehicles of 2014

TORRANCE, Calif., Feb. 12, 2014 /PRNewswire- — Four Honda vehicles have earned recognition from the American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy (ACEEE) for superior environmental performance, including three that ranked in the top ten among the ACEEE’s “greenest vehicles of 2013.” In the ACEEE’s annual “Green Book® Online” ranking of environmentally responsible vehicles, the Honda Civic Hybrid placed fifth overall and in the top three among gasoline-powered vehicles, while the Civic Natural Gas and the Insight placed ninth and tenth, respectively.

Moreover, the fuel-efficient Odyssey was the highest ranked minivan and was named as a “greener choices of 2014.” This is the 16th straight year that multiple Honda vehicles have been named to the top 12.

“Honda has embraced the challenge to bring to market more energy-efficient mobility solutions to reduce CO2 emissions,” said Steven Center, vice president of the Environmental Business Development Office at American Honda Motor Co., Inc. “ACEEE’s recognition of Honda’s fuel-efficient models over the past 16 years, including a diverse lineup of alternative fuel vehicles, is recognition of the Honda engineers who continue to work towards our goal to leave ‘Blue Skies for our Children.’”

The ACEEE ranking system uses a singular measure that incorporates fuel economy and health-related pollution impacts plus global warming and upstream emissions. All vehicles are analyzed and given a “Green Score” which is used to rank each vehicle’s total environmental performance, including a list of the 12 “greenest” and 12 “meanest” vehicles along with a ranking of greenest vehicles by segment.

Honda’s Environmental Leadership
Honda has a long history of environmental innovation, including the retail introduction of America’s first hybrid (1999 Honda Insight), delivery of the first fuel-cell electric vehicle in the U.S. (2002 Honda FCX) and the first gasoline-powered vehicles in the hands of consumers to meet stricter emissions standards, including the 1996 Honda Civic, the first gasoline Low Emissions Vehicle (LEV); the 1998 Honda Accord, the first gasoline Ultra-Low Emissions Vehicle (ULEV); the 2000 Honda Accord, the first gasoline Super Ultra-Low Emissions Vehicle (SULEV) in the hands of consumers; the 2001 Civic Natural Gas, the first vehicle to qualify as an Advanced Technology Partial-Zero Emissions Vehicle (AT-PZEV); and, most recently, the 2014 Honda Accord Plug-In, the first Super Ultra-Low Emissions 20 Vehicle (LEV 3/SULEV 20), now available for lease and sale in California and New York state.

2014 Honda CR-Z Provides Unheard of Hybrid Performance

We like to find fresh articles and information for you, but sometimes someone else writes it so well, it’s hard to say otherwise. As such, below is a press release from Matt Castrucci Honda in Ohio on the incredible performance of the 2014 Honda CR-Z. Check it out:

“It’s official; hybrid vehicles are here to stay. With nearly every major automaker producing a hybrid vehicle in one way or another, driving down a highway and not seeing one would be a shock. What wouldn’t be a shock, however, is driving down a highway and not being able to recognize the Honda CR-Z as a hybrid vehicle.

“Hybrid vehicles are great for the environment and the wallet when it comes time to fill up, but if there was one pitfall to these gas-sipping vehicles, it would be that they lack the athleticism and style many vehicle shoppers are after. Generally easy to spot, most hybrid vehicle options feature lackluster designs where the majority of innovation gets placed into powertrain configurations. Going against the hybrid grain, the 2014 Honda CR-Z at Matt Castrucci Honda takes a completely different approach on what a hybrid should look and drive like.

“Packaged tightly into a sleek hatchback design, the 2014 Honda CR-Z features a surprisingly aggressive look for a vehicle that competes in the hybrid segment. Thanks to a sport-inspired front end design, aggressively molded side panels and a distinct rear end, the CR-Z looks more like a performance vehicle pieced together with aftermarket parts than one concealing a hybrid engine.

“Honda doesn’t just stop with changing the appearance of its CR-Z to become more athletic. An extra emphasis on its driving characteristics are also taken into consideration. Producing a more thrilling ride for its drivers, the CR-Z uses the combination of a gas-powered and electric motor to give it unheard of hybrid performance.

“The CR-Z produces a lively 130 horsepower and 140 pound feet of torque (with a six-speed manual transmission) that is controlled with Honda’s perfected science of the responsive drive-by-throttle steering system.  In addition to the responsive steering of the CR-Z, a firmer suspension has also been placed into the CR-Z to give it a driving feel unlike any other vehicle in its class.”
