2014 Honda Accord Plug-In Hybrid Priced from $39,780 in the US
Honda say its is more efficient than any of the other cars in the same niche, like the Ford C-Max Energi, which gets 100 MPGe, the Chevy Volt, with 98 MPGe or Toyota’s Prius Plug-In Hybrid, which manages just 95 MPGe. The Accord plug-in is powered by a 2.0-liter petrol engine, 137 hp, which is aided by a powerful 166 hp electric motor which draws juice from a 6.7 kWh battery pack.
Peak power is 196 hp, and the Accord can return 49 MPG city and 45 mpg highway, so an average of 47 mpg on the combined cycle. While it may be quite pricy, the Accord Plug-In Hybrid is still a worthy competitor in the class, and it will undoubtedly gain its own loyal ‘band of followers’ once it becomes available.
