Under the hood of the Accord Hybrid is a 2.0L in-line 4-cylinder engine. It’s dynamic and accelerates quickly, which makes trickier driving situations such as merging or passing much easier. The engine works in tandem with the electric motor, but on its own it contributes up to 143 horsepower and 129 lb.-ft of torque to the total system’s power.
Along with the gasoline engine, the Accord Hybrid utilizes an AC Synchronous Permanent Magnet Electric Motor that is powered by a lithium-ion battery. Unlike many other hybrid models, the Accord Hybrid houses the motor underneath the rear seats instead of the trunk area. This frees up valuable cargo space in the trunk for everything you need to bring on your journey. The electric motor contributes 181 horsepower and 232 lb.-ft of torque by itself, with the total system producing 212 horsepower..
The powertrain of the Accord Hybrid has features and equipment that assist with performance and enhance what the Accord Hybrid can do. From helping the Accord Hybrid perform better on inclines to an eco assist system that helps drivers get the most out of their hybrid, the powertrain features:
Working along with the engine and motor hybrid system is an Electronic Continuously Variable Transmission (E-CVT) with Sport Mode and Deceleration Selectors. It transfers the power generated and expertly delivers it to the front wheels. And with the Sport Mode feature and deceleration selectors, the experience behind the wheel is engaging and fun.
One of the chief reasons to consider driving a hybrid is the benefit of achieving incredible fuel economy. It not only allows drivers to travel longer distances with less visits to the pump, which allows drivers to save money in the long run, but it’s also a better option for the environment. The Accord Hybrid has a tank capacity of 12.8 gallons and an EPA estimated fuel economy of 47 combined mpg.
Safety meets performance with active safety features that boost the Accord Hybrid’s ability to perform despite inclement weather or less-than-ideal road conditions.
