USA: Spied: 2013 Honda Accord Plug-In Hybrid Spotted in California

Last week we brought you photos of a next-generation Honda Accord under heavy camouflage, and now our friends at Automotive.com spotted another Accord testing in California. This prototype was spotted near Honda’s headquarters in Torrance, California, and appears to be a plug-in hybrid model.

The big giveaway on this prototype car is the oval on the front fender, which is almost certainly the cover for a battery charging port. It’s no secret that the next Honda Accord will offer a hybrid powertrain, and we already knew it would be of the plug-in hybrid variety. An electric motor drives the front wheels and draws power from a 6-kWh lithium-ion battery. A 2.0-liter inline-four gasoline engine is mated to a generator to produce extra power once the battery is drained; the gas engine also can directly drive the front wheels at speeds above 40 mph.
