Honda Accord Hybrid and Plug-in Hybrid in Japan

The Honda Accord Hybrid and Plug-in Hybrid have been released in Japan. The Accord Hybrid can return a quoted fuel economy of 30 km per litre, courtesy of the Sport Hybrid i-MMD (intelligent Multi-Mode Drive) powertrain, which features Earth Dreams tech.

The Sport Hybrid i-MMD system involves a 137 hp 2.0 litre i-VTEC four-cylinder Atkinson-cycle engine, an electric CVT enclosing two motors (a 166 hp one for traction and a 141 hp one for generation), and a lithium-ion battery.

Drive switches automatically between electricity only, internal combustion engine only or a combination of both, depending on driving style. Braking is regenerative, too.


The Accord Plug-in Hybrid is based on the Accord Hybrid, but delivers a quoted 70.4 km per litre thanks to a system that makes the car run on EV mode more of the time.
