The Honda Accord and Accord Plug-In Hybrid are new models in the Honda lineup for moving the Accord lineup to pastures with improved economy for the newly redesigned sedan. It competes with the Sonata, Toyota Camry, and the Fusion.

The Accord Plug-In went on sale in limited in January 2013, but the regular Accord won’t arrive the second half of 2013, it will be sold nationally. It be built in the same U.S. plant as all conventional Accords, the lower-volume plug-in hybrid will be built only in

With the exception of the grille, taillights, and a few add-on aerodynamic items, the pair of hybrid look just like versions of the conventional Accord sedan. We like the lines, are crisp for such a large but neither overly curvacious the Sonata) nor too aggressive. Inside, the high-quality interior materials as the Accord are used, but the hybrids in at the high end of the Accord range, so have most of the bells and that are extra-cost options on Accord models.

Honda has extra energy-use graphics and displays to the instrument panel and display screen for the hybrid as well.

It’s the powertrain sets the new Accord hybrids Honda has created a new two-motor hybrid system for these (and more to come) entirely different from the Motor Assist (IMA) offered on various smaller since 1999. The company that a more powerful system was needed for larger than the compact and subcompact it had sold so far, and Honda has put years and much development into the new system.

Both Accord hybrid are fitted with a 2.0-liter direct injected four-cylinder which powers the front through a transmission incorporating a of electric motors that all but inside each other. The motor that powers the is rated at a whopping 124 kilowatts horsepower), more powerful any other hybrid’s. It’s a compact system electronically to operate in a number of different depending on demand.

The hybrid handle decently, but they’re far on the road and behind the wheel other Accord models. The plug-in hybrid model many hundred pounds than the simplest four-cylinder with continuously variable (CVT), which was much and lither than the heavier models.

We haven’t yet driven the Accord but at speeds up to 30 or 40 mph and under moderate the plug-in model can run solely on power; at the highest cruising only the engine powers the and in between, the new hybrid system can the car with blended torque by both the engine and the motor. It has an additional ‘series hybrid’ in which the engine turns one of the that acts as a generator to the battery while the battery powers the other motor to run the the engine is not mechanically driving the The system switches seamlessly these modes to maximize efficiency.

Overall, Honda’s new system is clever, compact, and and it delivers a smooth driving with enough power drivers can forget they’re the wheel of a hybrid and simply as they always would. also gives drivers of the model an HV mode to conserve the battery charge for later use in quiet zones), and even an EV Charge function to recharge the pack using the gasoline least efficient charging but useful nonetheless. The Accord Hybrid is fitted with a onboard charger, meaning the can be recharged from empty in 3 hours.

Honda says the plug-in will have 10 to 15 miles of range from its 6.7-kilowatt-hour battery pack. That’s than the Fusion Hybrid (at 21 but considerably more than the Prius, which the EPA rates at 11 of electric range—only 6 miles of it

The Honda Accord Plug-In is the most expensive model in the Accord range. It’s got every feature of the top-of-the-line EX-L, plus the added of the plug-in hybrid system—so it the lot at $40,000 or more.

The earlier Accord Hybrid, sold 2004 through 2007, the company’s mild-hybrid system not for fuel economy but to deliver acceleration and performance. Ten years with far fewer hybrids on the that was a confusing message.

The first-generation Accord Hybrid about as well as the Accord V-6 but was less smooth under driving conditions—and didn’t the stellar gas mileage most associated with hybrids. It do well and was withdrawn after good sales plummeted.
