2018 Accord Hybrid More Affordable Than Ever

2018 Accord Hybrid More Affordable Than Ever

The all-new 2018 Accord Hybrid has arrived as the latest addition to Honda’s growing portfolio of electrified vehicles. Boasting class-leading power, cabin space, and cargo space, the next-generation Accord Hybrid wholly embodies Honda’s unique approach to electrification – infusing fun-to-drive performance, efficiency, premium feature content, and comfort in a sophisticated and affordable package.

To suit a wider variety of hybrid sedan shoppers, the Accord Hybrid lineup now comes in five trim levels: Hybrid, EX (new), EX-L, EX-L Navi (new), and Touring. Better yet, the new Accord Hybrid is more affordable than ever thanks to a starting Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price(1) of $25,100 (excluding $890 destination and handling), reflecting a $4,505 drop compared to the previous model. Despite this lower entry point, the Accord Hybrid still offers a lengthy list of standard equipment, such as 17-inch alloy wheels, LED headlights (low beam) and taillights, dual-zone climate control, Smart entry with Push-button Start, a 7-inch TFT digital driver’s meter, a multi-angle rearview camera, and the Honda Sensing suite of advanced safety and driver-assistive technologies, which bundles together Adaptive Cruise Control with Low-Speed Follow, Collision Mitigation Braking System, Road Departure Mitigation, Lane Departure Warning, and Traffic Sign Recognition.

The 2018 Accord Hybrid is powered by the third generation of Honda’s innovative two-motor hybrid powertrain, which pairs a 2.0-liter DOHC i-VTEC Atkinson-cycle inline-4 engine with 40-percent thermal efficiency to an electric propulsion motor that churns out 232 lb.-ft. of torque for a class-leading total system output of 212 horsepower. As before, the Accord two-motor system operates without the need for a conventional automatic transmission.

Helping to maximize energy generation are steering wheel-mounted Deceleration Selectors. Similar to transmission paddle shifters, the Accord Hybrid’s Deceleration Selectors allow the driver to easily toggle between four levels of regenerative braking performance. The right selector increases regenerative braking and the left selector reduces regenerative braking. The system simultaneously helps reduce stress on the brakes while increasing battery charging via regeneration.

The Accord Hybrid’s powertrain operates by seamlessly shifting between three distinct drive operations: EV Drive (100-percent electric motor), Hybrid Drive (electric motor and gasoline engine [driving the generator motor]) and Engine Drive (gasoline engine), utilizing power from the gasoline engine and electric motors to accommodate the current driving conditions.

The 2018 Accord Hybrid EPA Fuel Economy Ratings are 47 city / 47 highway / 47 combined(2)

The 2018 Accord Hybrid benefits from a 2.16 inch longer wheelbase and a 32-percent smaller intelligent power unit (IPU) that is now mounted under the rear floor instead of in the trunk, allowing for the inclusion of a 60/40-split rear seat. As a result, the Accord Hybrid provides the same people- and cargo-hauling space and flexibility as its conventionally-powered counterparts. Add it altogether and the 2018 Accord Hybrid delivers class-leading cargo space (16.7 cubic feet), interior space (122.3 cubic feet), and rear legroom (40.4 inches) all while reducing its overall footprint.

The newest Accord Hybrid joins an expanding line-up of electrified Honda vehicles that includes the Clarity series – Clarity Fuel Cell, Clarity Electric and Clarity Plug-In Hybrid – and forthcoming 2019 Insight compact hybrid sedan. These models represent the next generation of Honda vehicles as the company advances toward its global initiative to grow electrified vehicle sales to two-thirds by 2030.

The new Accord Hybrid joins the Accord 1.5T and 2.0T in Honda’s all-new, award-winning 10th-generation Accord lineup. The new Accord has been called “America’s Best Sedan” by Car and Driver magazine, and in January was named 2018 North American Car of the Year. On the heels of claiming Kelley Blue Book KBB.com’s prestigious Overall Best Buy Award for 2018, the Accord has also earned a KBB.com Best Resale Value Award.
