The Honda Accord Plug-in Hybrid is a Smart Choice for 2015

January 13th, 2015 by

HondaDrivers seeking a fuel efficient car for 2015 should consider the 2014 Honda Accord Plug-in Hybrid. It takes the good looks of a classic sedan and drops one of the most fuel-efficient engines under the hood. As you may have guessed from the name, the Accord Plug-in Hybrid is a bit different from the standard hybrid design; you can plug it in to charge the battery more fully and drive the vehicle in electric mode for short drives.

Like any good Honda, it’s capable of offering far more than a fuel-efficient engine.

How Efficient is it?

The 2014 Honda Accord Plug-in Hybrid is so efficient that we actually have to use a different kind of scale to compare it to normal, gas-powered vehicles. The 2014 Accord Plug-in is rated at an impressive EPA-estimated 124 MPGe city/105 MPGe highway/115 MPGe combined city/highway driving.*

While you probably know and compare mpg ratings when shopping for a new car, the MPGe stands for “mile-per-gallon equivalent” and is the best way to compare how an electric or partially electric engine can compare to the typical gasoline engine. And if you think that 115 MPGe is a high number, you’re right.

More than an Engine

The engine of the Accord Plug-in is quite impressive, and the cabin has some of the best features in its class, including:

  • Satellite-linked navigation
  • Voice controlled technology
  • Bluetooth HandsFreeLink for phone and audio
  • Multi-angle rearview camera with guidelines
  • Push-button ignition
  • Programmable HomeLink remote system
  • 8-inch touchscreen i-MID infotainment system

The exterior features unique hybrid badging, blue-tinted chrome bezels on the LED headlights and brake lights, chrome door handles, and more. High-tech, high-class, and high efficiency all wrapped up in one mid-size sedan.

Though we don’t have any news on a potential 2015 model of the Accord Plug-in Hybrid yet, the 2014 model is still just as impressive as it was when it debuted.
