The Accord Hybrid is the latest model in the completely redesigned ninth-generation Accord lineup, Honda’s best-selling model in America. The addition of the Accord Hybrid, which follows the September 2012 launch of the Accord Sedan and Accord Coupe (with 4-cylinder and V-6 powertrains) and the January 2013 launch of the Accord Plug-In, further broadens what is already the most diverse range of models and powertrain options in the history of Accord and in the hotly competitive U.S. midsize sedan market.


The all-new Accord Hybrid, manufactured by Honda of America Mfg. Inc. in Marysville, Ohio, joins the Indiana-made Civic Hybrid as the second Honda-brand hybrid vehicle to be produced in America 1. Utilizing the same Earth Dreams Technologyв„ў powertrain architecture as the Accord Plug-In, Honda’s first two-motor hybrid powertrain, the Accord Hybrid is designed to deliver outstanding fuel efficiency and fun-to-drive performance, and at 50 miles per gallon 2 it delivers the highest EPA city fuel-economy rating of any four door sedan.

Utilizing the same fundamental body and chassis architecture as the standard (non-hybrid) Accord Sedan, including its highly aerodynamic and lightweight body, sophisticated suspension design and outstanding interior package, the 2014 Accord Hybrid also delivers on the new-generation Accord’s promise to excel in all areas. These areas include not only fuel efficiency and driving performance but also class-leading passenger comfort and ergonomics; top-level safety and driver-assistive systems with features such as Honda’s next-generation ACEв„ў body structure, available Lane Departure Warning, Forward Collision Warning and LaneWatch (standard); and leading-edge connectivity via the new HondaLinkВ® connected car technology.

The Accord Hybrid’s two-motor hybrid system, part of an expanding lineup of Honda Earth Dreams Technologyв„ў powertrains, seamlessly blends electric-only, hybrid and engine drive modes along with powerful regenerative braking to provide responsive and efficient performance in a wide range of driving situations. Fuel efficiency is further aided by a number of features exclusive to the Accord Hybrid and Accord Plug-In. These include an all-aluminum front subframe, which replaces the steel-and-aluminum subframe used on the conventional Accord Sedan and Coupe models, and an aluminum rear bumper beam, which helps offset the additional weight of the rear-mounted battery pack while also improving front-to-rear weight balance.

The 2014 Accord Hybrid further advances Honda’s commitment to gasoline-electric hybrid powertrains as a critical technology for reducing fuel consumption and CO 2 emissions from its automobile products.В  Honda introduced America’s first hybrid automobile, the first-generation Insight, in December 1999; the first hybrid version of an existing mass-market vehicle, the Civic Hybrid, in 2002; the world’s first mass-produced V-6 hybrid car, the first-generation Accord Hybrid, in 2004; the world’s most affordable hybrid car, the second-generation Insight, in 2009; and the first affordable sporty hybrid car, the CR-Z, in 2010.
