Since 1974, when the emissions-reducing CVCC engine was introduced in the Honda Civic, Honda’s engineers have worked tirelessly to maximize fuel efficiency in all of their cars. Today, Honda offers drivers a wide variety of environmentally friendly choices, from hydrogen-powered vehicles to hybrid options. However, it doesn’t end here– Honda has set a global target for two-thirds of all its sales to come from electrified models by 2030. Stay tuned, as the list of alternative fuel vehicles from Honda is sure to expand over the coming years.
Ever since its 2020 release, the Honda CR-V Hybrid has attracted single drivers and growing families alike, all with a common goal of taking on their daily travels in a greener way without sacrificing performance and fun.
The 2022 Honda CR-V Hybrid possesses all of the same great characteristics as its gasoline-powered sibling, including generous amounts of passenger and cargo space, composed handling, and plenty of standard safety features. What’s different, however, is the 2.0-liter DOHC i-VTEC® Atkinson-cycle engine paired with an electric motor and e-CVT transmission. Additionally, a lithium-ion battery and Honda’s Eco Assist™ System help limit your fuel pump visits and keep you on the road longer.
Also exclusive to CR-V Hybrid is the pushbutton gear selector and a 3-mode drive system:
But enough about the technical aspects behind this hybrid SUV—let’s talk numbers. The 2022 Honda CR-V Hybrid isn’t some one-trick pony that only focuses on efficiency. In fact, the CR-V Hybrid boasts 212 total system horsepower, 232 lb-ft of torque, and standard-equipped Real Time AWD with Intelligent Control System™, all while featuring an EPA-estimated 40 mpg in the city and 35 mpg on the highway*. With the perfect balance of power and efficiency, Honda made no concessions when building the 2022 CR-V Hybrid.
Honda has dubbed this car the “no-compromise hybrid” because it simply refuses to make sacrifices. From power and efficiency to amenities and safety technologies, the 2022 Honda Accord Hybrid does not make any concessions.
The 2022 Accord Hybrid is powered by the third generation of Honda’s innovative two-motor hybrid-electric system, a powertrain that was named to the 2019 Wards 10 Best Engines list thanks in part to its ability to operate without the need for a traditional automatic transmission. Accord’s two-motor hybrid system joins a 2.0-Liter In-Line 4-Cylinder engine for 212 total system horsepower and 232 lb-ft of torque. Throttle response is improved in the 2022 Accord Hybrid, leading to an even more invigorating and engaging touring experience.
Intelligent engineering is the hallmark of any Honda vehicle and the 2022 Accord Hybrid is proof positive, equipped with technology that promotes both power and efficiency:
Safety remains a top concern in the Accord Hybrid. The 2020 model year was the first to introduce an updated Acoustic Vehicle Alert System (AVAS) that functions whenever the car is operating on electric power only, enhancing driver awareness for both pedestrians and other drivers occupying the road. Taking driver awareness one step further, every 2022 Accord Hybrid model is standard-equipped with the Honda Sensing® suite, an intuitive package of safety and driver-assist features.
At the end of the day, this Honda hybrid carries the legendary, award-winning Accord nameplate, which means drivers receive a midsize hybrid sedan with the same combination of performance, refinement, technology, and value as its non-hybrid sibling.
The Honda Insight is a true trailblazer within the hybrid segment. In fact, the Insight was the first available hybrid car on North American roadways. Consumers have seen four generations of the Honda Insight since 1999 with the first iteration coming in the form of a manual transmission, 2-door liftback. While this hybrid has experienced many changes over the past couple of decades, its core tenants of efficient performance, affordability, and innovative design have made the Insight one of America’s top-selling compact hybrid cars.
So how does the Honda Insight achieve 151 total system horsepower and 197 lb-ft of torque without sacrificing its superior fuel economy? Take a look under the hood of the 2022 Honda Insight:
As beautiful as it is efficient, the 2022 Honda Insight puts aerodynamics at the forefront of its design. The grille and engine designs reduce wind loss, while the front bumper limits wake. Underneath the vehicle, a flat floor design concept streamlines airflow, while strakes minimize wake. Even the trunk surface optimizes aerodynamic performance, while the placement of the exterior lights actually prevents airflow from entering the rear of the car.
The 2022 Honda Insight offers premium looks at an attractive price—and it just happens to be a hybrid, so the savings continue throughout ownership. This model blends refined power, styling, and performance for a driving experience you’ll have to experience to believe. From its aerodynamic approach to its pioneering powertrain, Honda’s reputation for intelligent engineering remains unblemished in the 2022 Honda Insight.
