Is a five passenger car really still a “passenger sedan” with its trunk half filled with a battery pack? Honda is testing the market in New York and California this year to see this question answered. The 2014 Honda Accord Plug-In hybrid sedan offers up the ability to run in an electric motor only mode for 10 to 15 miles while providing a presumptive total driving range exceeding 500 miles.

The engineering magic in the 2014 Accord Plug-In is courtesy of the company’s first dual motor hybrid system. The gasoline powered part is an all new 2.0-liter i-VTEC four cylinder engine producing 137 BHP. That motor is then paired with a considerably potent 124 kilowatt DC motor. The electric only mode is sustained by 6.7 kilowatt hour lithium-ion battery. Peak power output is rated at 196 BHP. As to be expected, the system is engineered to be largely invisible in operation to the occupants, the telltales being routed through a center dashboard display. The car posts an EPA rated 100 mpg plus equivalent in testing.
