USA: Honda reveals its latest 2014 Accord Hybrid sedan, goes on sale this October nationwide

Obviously based on the latest ninth generation Accord sedan, the new 2014 Accord Hybrid utilizes much of the same tech as the Accord Plug-In Hybrid, which began selling in January of this year. That means a two-motor Sport Hybrid Intelligent Multi Mode Drive powertrain—as Honda eloquently calls it—that serves up three different types of driving modes: EV Drive, Hybrid Drive, and Engine Drive.

This powertrain consists of Honda’s latest 2.0L i-VTEC Atkinson-cycle four-banter mated to a 124 kW electric motor. The results of most notable mention are fuel economy ratings of 49/45/47 city/highway/combined mpg.

Prices haven’t been released yet, though with the 2014 Honda Accord Plug-In Hybrid starting at $39,780, the regular 2014 Honda Accord Hybrid should hover a little under that figure.

The first official photos of the U.S. version of the all-new 2014 Honda Accord Hybrid set to hit dealerships nationwide this October are now available on the Honda consumer site. The Accord Hybrid features the same sophisticated styling found on the Accord Sedan plus unique hybrid badging and blue-accented grille and light lenses, LED daytime running lights, a unique wheel design and a decklid spoiler.

The 2014 Accord Hybrid will use Honda’s new two-motor hybrid powertrain, much of which is shared with the Accord Plug-In that went on sale in January. The two-motor SPORT HYBRID Intelligent Multi Mode Drive powertrain in the Accord Hybrid allows the vehicle to move through three different driving modes – EV Drive, Hybrid Drive and Engine Drive – to optimize fuel efficiency.
