Honda received plenty of acclaim for its redesigned 2013 Accord, and adds extra versatility to the lineup with a plug-in hybrid for 2014. While the new Accord can operate in pure electric mode, its gasoline engine eliminates range restrictions commonly associated with traditional electric vehicles.
The Accord Plug-In Hybrid features a 2-liter four-cylinder engine and an electric motor that produce a combined 196 horsepower. The standard continuously variable transmission (CVT) sends power to the front wheels. Electric-only range is limited—Honda estimates 10 to 15 miles—but in gas-electric mode hybrid technology pumps fuel economy to 47 mpg city and 46 mpg highway. Active systems—such as braking—help recharge the 6.7 kWh battery pack.Read more »
