While Honda has already begun announcing and talking about the future of their electrified vehicle lineup, there is currently only one hybrid model on the lineup: the 2018 Honda Accord Hybrid in Edmonton AB. So, if the traditional Honda models – which are quite efficient in their own rights – don’t offer efficiency ratings in line with what you’re looking for, but you like everything else that Honda models offer, then consider purchasing a new Accord Hybrid.
The 2018 Accord Hybrid offers everything that the standard 2018 Accord Sedan offers, with the added bonus of its hybrid powertrain. That means it’s just as stylish, just as comfortable, packed with just as much great content, and more. But we know the hybrid powertrain is what you really want to know about, so keep reading to find out more.
Specs & Features of the 2018 Accord Hybrid
Let’s hop right in – the 2018 Accord hybrid is powered by a 2.0L 4-cylinder engine tethered to an electric motor, allowing it to generate a combined 212 horsepower – which is actually more than the standard Accord Sedan offers. Yet even with that in mind, the 2018 Accord Hybrid is able to achieve 4.9 l/100km when driving through city streets and 5.1 l/100kmm on the highway.
There are also plenty of other features exclusive to the hybrid model than enhance efficiency and performance. For instance, an electronic continuously variable transmission replaces the traditional CVT, the Eco Assist System & ECON button help you keep track of your fuel levels and efficiency ratings, and finally three selectable driving modes. Hybrid drive, engine drive, and EV drive. Hybrid drive is common, engine drive is essentially driving a regular Accord Sedan, and EV drive is like driving a full-blown electrical vehicle.
