2014 Honda Accord PHEV

An Accord Hybrid is nothing new, but the all-new Accord introduces the lineup’s first-ever plug-in hybrid. The 2014 Honda Accord PHEV goes on sale in early 2013.

Mostly identical to the 2013 Accord sedan in the looks department, the plug-in hybrid is distinguished by its more pronounced, albeit overdone grille; unique 17-inch alloy wheels that reduce turbulence; and aluminum hood and special front bumper that reduce weight. There is also a full suite of aerodynamic panels lining the bottom of the car that improve airflow.

The 2013 Accord plug-in hybrid’s powertrain consists of the Japanese automaker’s Earth Dreams 2.0-liter i-VTEC 4-cylinder engine — tuned to produce 137-hp — tied to a 124 kW electric motor that sources its power from a 6.7 kilowatt-hour (kWh) lithium-ion battery. The system produces a combined 196-hp and offers three driving modes: all-electric, gasoline-electric and direct-drive. The all-electric mode offers the ability to drive for 10 to 15 miles (16 to 24 km) on just electricity.

The battery pack can be charged in less than an hour with a 240-volt charger and in three hours with a standard 120-volt household outlet. An available HondaLink EV smartphone app allows owners to monitor the charging of the car.

Honda claims a total driving range of over 500 miles (805 km) when using both gas and electricity and expects and EPA fuel-economy rating of over 100 miles per gallon equivalent (MPG-e).
