Overview Information

The Accord Hybrid is the most palatable application of Hybrid technology to date. The Accord joins the Insight and the Civic Hybrid in Hondas lineup. Rather than introducing a quirky new model, this hybrid is based on an all-star mid-size passenger car. The Integrated Motor Assist system increases fuel economy while also increasing the effective horsepower, torque and acceleration. The Accord Hybrid is positioned as a premium offering above the EX model.

What Changed:

Gas-electric hybrid version of the Accord sedan. First application of Honda's integrated motor assist technology on V6 engine. V6 also feature cylinder deactivation technology. Hybrid wears distinct grill, wheels and a spoiler.

Official Word:

"Putting hybrid technology into our most popular model is a further indication of Honda's commitment to hybrid technology and our confidence that consumers are ready for more hybrid models. The Accord hybrid delivers both increased performance and higher fuel economy. It takes hybrid technology into all new territory." -- Tom Elliott, executive vice president of American Honda Motor Co., Inc.
