Honda Accord Plug-in Hybrid previewed at KLIMS13, Honda Malaysia studying Accord Hybrid introduction

The Honda Accord Plug-in Hybrid is on display at Honda Malaysia’s KLIMS13 display. The hybrid Accord can be distinguished from a regular Accord by the different front grille, where the center grille is larger and extends lower into the front bumper. There are blue accents in the grille and headlamps. Of course, it also has alloy wheels with an aerodynamic design, further reinforcing the car’s efficiency theme.

Honda Malaysia is currently studying whether to introduce a hybrid Accord into our market or not. With an engine size of under 2,000cc, it would certainly qualify for duty exemption under the current NAP rules. As for the new rules expected to be announced in January, it’s anybody’s guess for now, but if rumours are correct, Honda would have to CKD the car as it did with the Jazz Hybrid to enjoy duty exemptions.

It’s worth noting that there are actually two different versions of the hybrid Accord. There is the Honda Accord Hybrid, and there is the Honda Accord Plug-in Hybrid. These two cars use different hybrid systems under the hood, with more differences than just the plug-in capability. Although the car on display at KLIMS is the Honda Accord Plug-in Hybrid, Honda Malaysia says they are studying the introduction of the Accord Hybrid, not the plug-in version.
