Mid-Michigan’s drivers have plenty of good things to say about Honda, and now, our friends and neighbors have one more reason to get excited about Honda’s hybrid lineup! The 2018 Honda Accord Hybrid’s horsepower and performance make it one of the standout options in the segment, and according to the writers at CNET’s Roadshow blog have noted, “With the same performance, trunk space and driving dynamics as the base sedan, the new Accord will make going hybrid easier than ever.” Read on to get a better sense of what the new Accord Hybrid can do!

Honda Accord Hybrid Fuel Economy

No matter where life takes you, you can count on the Honda Accord Hybrid to deliver 47 miles per gallon*. This model’s 2.0-Liter Inline 4-Cylinder is the most efficient production engine that a Honda vehicle has ever offered, and in most cases, it simply charges your Lithium Ion Battery while the AC Synchronous Permanent Magnet Electric Motor propels you forward. Moreover, drivers will be able to maximize their Accord Hybrid’s fuel economy—or push this Honda to its limits—by taking advantage of its standard features. Each Accord Hybrid trim has been designed with an EcoAssist System, an essential Energy Management System Display, and a 3-Mode Drive System.

Energy Management System Display: The Accord Hybrid offers a standard feature that makes it easy to get a complete readout on your powertrain’s behavior. This centrally located screen displays the work that’s being done by your engine and by your electric motor, so you’ll always know exactly what’s going on under the hood.

3-Mode Drive System: Make the most of every mile with the Accord Hybrid’s 3-Mode Drive System. On most days you’ll spend your time in Normal Mode, which offers a balance between fuel economy and energetic acceleration that’s perfect for daily driving. Eco Mode limits the contribution of your gasoline-powered engine, minimizing your fuel consumption when you’re driving in the city or stuck in traffic. Highway conditions are best experienced with Sport mode, which fully engages the engine.
Eco Assist System: A standard Eco Assist System makes constant, minute adjustments to the behavior of components in your powertrain. By learning how you drive, the system optimizes its functioning and ensures that you’ll use less fuel wherever you go. This system goes to work automatically, taking the burden off the driver.

Honda Accord Hybrid Horsepower and Powertrain

The Honda Accord Hybrid’s central components work together to give you a touring experience that you’ll never forget. This Hybrid runs on an innovative two-motor system that’s been carried over from previous Accord Hybrid designs, but it’s sure to feel fresh to drivers used to more conventional vehicles. As noted, the main power source in this model is an AC Synchronous Permanent Magnet Electric Motor. This motor makes the most significant contributions to the Accord Hybrid’s horsepower and torque specifications, but that hardly means that its 2.0-Liter Inline 4-Cylinder Atkinson-Cycle Engine has a tendency to slack off. The latter goes to work whenever you need an additional burst of power.

These components have been paired with an Electronic Continuously Variable Transmission that ensures smooth, satisfying shifting and acceleration. This smartly-designed transmission minimizes your fuel consumption by identifying optimal shift points, and perhaps surprisingly, it also gives drivers a new way to slow their rate of travel. Standard Deceleration technology can slow your vehicle without requiring any application of the brake pedal, and what’s more, this feature will automatically recharge your battery as you drive!

Component Horsepower Torque Total System Horsepower
AC Synchronous Permanent-Magnet Electric Motor 181 HP @ 5000-6000 RPM 232 lb.-ft. @ 0-2000 RPM 212 HP @ 6200 RPM
Inline 4-Cylinder Atkinson Cycle Engine 143 HP @ 6200 RPM 129 lb.-ft. @ 3500 RPM 212 HP @ 6200 RPM
