Honda anticipates that the EPA will rate its 2014 Honda Accord Hybrid at 49 MPG city driving, 45 MPG highway driving, and 47 MPG combined. If these expectations are met, this would make for the highest fuel efficiency rating yet achieved for a hybrid in its class. The vehicle is also Honda’s first hybrid ever produced at their Marysville, OH plant and the second built in the U.S.
The 2014 Honda Accord Hybrid is powered with a 124 kilowatt (166 horsepower) electric propulsion system and a 2.0-liter DOHC iVTEC Atkinson-Cycle 4-cylinder engine. The hybrid runs on two electric motors and is capable of running in pure electric mode, as well as in hybrid and engine mode.
The vehicle will be available for sale in October of this year with a base price of $40,570.
