For the 2018 model year, Accord has a powertrain for every type of driver. The standard Accord Sedan packs a 1.5T in-line 4-cylinder that easily tackles the daily commute with style and efficiency. The 2.0T option is 252 horsepower of high-revving, turbocharged acceleration that quickly leaves fellow drivers in your rearview mirror. And finally, we have the 2018 Honda Accord Hybrid, which seamlessly blends exceptional fuel economy and impressive power to the tune of 47 combined city/highway mpg* and 212 total horsepower.
So how does Honda do it? The sophisticated powerplant consists of an in-line 4-cylinder engine and AC Synchronous Permanent Magnet Electric Motor, the world’s first hybrid system that does not use any rare-earth magnets; meanwhile, the electronic continuously variable transmission (E-CVT) perpetually changes the gear ratio to keep RPMs at an optimum level.
The 2018 Honda Accord Hybrid also features deceleration selectors which increase the effect of regenerative braking, a process comparable to the downshifting that takes place in a conventional vehicle. This added control not only promotes driver engagement, but it can also enhance your Accord’s performance.
Perhaps the most noteworthy update to this year’s Accord Hybrid, however, is the repositioning of its lithium-ion battery. Now residing underneath the rear seats, the battery’s relocation has lead to a class-leading 16.7 cubic feet of trunk space†.
But for all of the differences that set this hybrid apart from the standard Accord Sedan, there is an even longer list of similarities. Its fastback-inspired exterior design remains untouched, while distinctive body lines, wide stance, and dynamic light signature round out a commanding presence. Available features like Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, Head-Up Display, wireless device charging, and mobile hotspot capability keep Accord at the forefront of automotive technology. And of course, safety continues to be a top priority, as the comprehensive Honda Sensing suite is standard equipped on every Accord Hybrid. Opting for a hybrid car used to come with sacrifices, whether that meant horsepower, interior space, or style, but those days are long gone thanks to the 2018 Honda Accord Hybrid.
