2020 Honda CR-V Hybrid Powertrain
Set to be the first of Honda’s American electrified SUVs, the Honda CR-V Hybrid will utilize the same Two-Motor hybridelectric system currently used to such great effect in the Honda Accord Hybrid. It combines:
- Two Electric Motors
- Hybrid Battery
- 2.0L 16-valve DOHC Atkinson Cycle Engine
An Intelligent Power Unit (IPU) expertly distributes up to a combined 212 hp between all four wheels, and we’re told to expect a 50% increase in EPA city fuel economy rating compared against the Honda CR-V. And Don’t think the CR-V Hybrid will sacrifice an ounce of capability. This will mark the first application of All-Wheel Drive to the Two-Motor system within America.
As summed up by Henio Arcangeli, Jr., senior vice president of Automobile Sales at American Honda Motor Co., Inc.: “The CR-V Hybrid also signifies our direction to bring Honda hybrid-electric technology to all core models and to invest in the production of electrified vehicles in America.”
