2014 Honda Accord Hybrid to Get EPA 47 MPG Combined

When the 2014 Honda Accord Hybrid rolls out this October, Honda expects the Accord’s resurrected gas/electric variant to get an EPA rating of 49/45/47 mpg (city/highway/combined). The car joins the Accord Plug-in Hybrid, which went on sale in January, and a redesigned Accord that arrived last fall. It’s the first Accord Hybrid we’ve seen since 2007, two Accord generations ago.

The 49 mpg city figure leads the Accord’s class, and the combined figure ties the Ford Fusion Hybrid (47/47/47 mpg city/highway/combined). It sails ahead of the Toyota Camry Hybrid (40-41 mpg combined depending on the trim level), Hyundai Sonata Hybrid (37-38 mpg combined depending on trim) and diesel Volkswagen Passat TDI (34-35 mpg combined depending on transmission).

The Accord Hybrid — Honda’s first hybrid built in Marysville, Ohio — features unique wheels, a blue grille and headlight accents, LED daytime running lights and a rear spoiler. Under the hood, Honda’s hybrid system combines a 124-kW electric motor with a 2.0-liter Atkinson-cycle four-cylinder to drive in fully electric, gasoline or mixed power. Electric power comes from a lithium-ion battery.
