2018 Honda Accord Hybrid Performance Features

The 2018 Honda Accord Hybrid is a fuel-efficient sedan with a long list of comfort, convenience, and technology features inside. But the Accord Hybrid doesn’t sacrifice performance on the road in order to achieve such incredible fuel economy. As U.S. News & World Report notes, “it gets some of the best mpg rating in the class and the engine provide ample power.” With an innovative hybrid engine and motor system, it achieves impressive horsepower, fast acceleration, and includes features that enhance its abilities on the road.


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..
