2014 Honda Accord PHEV to Offer 15 Miles of Electric-Only Range

Set to go on sale in early 2013, the 2014 Honda Accord Plug-In Hybrid Sedan will offer “premium technology, exceptional cabin space, the ability to run in an all-electric mode for 10 to 15 miles and a calculated total driving range over 500 miles.” That’s the message from yesterday’s press release from Honda, as the company readies its 2014 Accord PHEV for its US debut at the Los Angeles Auto Show in late November.

Honda said the powertrain on the Accord PHEV will feature an i-VTEC 2.0-liter 4-cylinder gasoline engine coupled with a two-motor hybrid drive system. The hybrid system features a 124-kW electric motor powered by a 6.7-kWh lithium-ion battery pack. Total horsepower is listed at 196, which beats the Toyota Prius Plug-In Hybrid, Chevrolet Volt, and Ford Fusion Energi on power. Despite the extra oomph, Honda said the plug-in Accord will be rated at over 100 MPGe.
