2014 Honda Accord Hybrid Review

2014 Honda Accord Hybrid Review - The 2014 Honda Accord Hybrid and Plug-In Hybrid , two new entries into the growing mid-size automobile hybrid segment, are more pleasant to drive than a Prius, more spacious than a Voltage, and offer all the usual virtues of the popular Accord range

The conventional Accord Hybrid plays with hybrid designs of the Honda Combination, Hyundai Sonata, Kia Optima, and Toyota Camry, while the plug-in version plays with the Honda Combination Energi--also a plug-in hybrid--and the Chevrolet Voltage.

The 2014 Honda Accord Hybrid and Accord Plug-In hybrid add a pair of new hybrid options to the latest generation of Accord mid-size sedans. Restyled and updated for the 2013 design year in gas-only form, the Accord line expands for the 2014 design year to consist of both a conventional hybrid and the company's first-ever plug-in hybrid.

The 2014 Honda Accord Hybrid, at 50 mpg city, 45 highway (47 Combined), is the highest-mpg fuel automobile, not counting plug-ins. Meanwhile there is an Accord Plug-In Multiple, which gets a larger 6.7-kWh battery energy package instead of the Hybrid's 1.3-kWh lithium-ion battery energy pack

The Accord Hybrid 141-hp, 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine runs on the ultra-efficient Atkinson cycle, and has one energy motor--which serves as a generator to charge battery energy package on engine overrun--fixed to the back of it. A second engine unit coupled to it powers the vehicle most of the time, or it can also recharge the package under regenerative braking.

Honda's new large hybrid program offers three different types of operation--all of them automatically chosen by its management software. At higher cruising speeds, the engine alone can energy the top side wheels, with or without energy involvement. But the driver won't necessarily know what's happening under the hood, as the engine is well muffled and comes on smoothly when it's needed.

The Accord Plug-In hybrid is a single design at the biggest end of the range, with basically every feature that's offered on the top-of-the-line Accord EX-L fuel design, including LED daytime running lights, flexible vacation management, and other functions.
