2017 Honda Accord Hybrid
Discover the new 2017 Honda Accord Hybrid in Odessa, Texas.
Honda has begun touring the 2017 Honda Accord Hybrid and will soon be offering this new model in the new Honda lineup. The 2017 Honda Accord Hybrid features a more powerful and efficient second-generation two-motor hybrid powertrain. The new powertrain will achieve 212 horsepower and an EPA fuel economy rating of 49/47/48 (city/highway/combined). This increased power and fuel efficiency put the new Accord Hybrid at the top of the class for ratings, making it the most powerful and fuel efficient midsize hybrid sedan in America.
By combining Honda’s two-motor hybrid system with an ultra-efficient 2.0-liter i-VTEC Atkinson Cycle engine, the new hybrid powertrain not only delivers maximum fuel efficiency, it also eliminates the need for a conventional mechanical transmission. This allows for seamless transitions between three operations:
EV Drive – powers the front wheels for short distances using the electric propulsion motor and ion battery pack.
Hybrid Drive – engages the electric propulsion motor to power the front wheels and uses the gasoline engine to power a second motor for supplement power from the battery pack.
Engine Drive – both the motor and the gasoline engine are engaged and connected via a lock-up clutch mechanism to power the vehicle.
New standard features on the 2017 Honda Accord Hybrid will include a wide angle rearview camera, remote engine start and a full suite of Honda Sensing technology. Among these features are Honda’s Lane Keeping Assist, Road Departure Mitigation and Forward Collision Warning systems. The new Accord Hybrid will also be Android Auto and Apple CarPlay ready with upper trim levels including a 7-inch display audio touchscreen.
The new Honda Accord Hybrid will be available with a choice of three trims – Hybrid, Hybrid EX-L and Hybrid Touring. It is anticipated at Honda dealerships later this year and is sure to become one of our most popular models.
