The 2017 Honda Accord Hybrid Sports Best-in-Class Mileage
The 2017 Honda Accord Hybrid’s powertrain and mpg ratings has turned heads in Goshen, Monroe, and all across the country. After it, it’s quite an achievement for a hybrid model to achieve both Best-in-Class scores in both efficiency and horsepower.
Such a fusion of high-end performance and startlingly low fuel costs and emissions rates easily cements the position of the Honda Accord Hybrid at the front of the hybrid sedan segment. Here’s everything you need to know about its game-changing powertrain and the specs that result from it.
The 2017 Honda Accord Hybrid has truly taken a step forward by utilizing a pioneering two-motor hybrid system. One motor is used to accelerate the Accord Hybrid up from a dead stop, while the other is used to start the engine and provide charge for the first motor.
This kind of division of labor reduces the wasteful expenditure of energy demonstrated by other hybrid models, and it’s the first such system to hit the industry. As a result, you’ll enjoy Best-in-Class efficiency ratings of up to 49 mpg in the city and 47 mpg on the highway*.
Even better, that dual-hybrid system has been paired up with a powerful 2.0L i-VTEC Atkinson Cycle engine, which is capable of putting up to 212-hp at the disposal of Goshen and Monroe drivers. That’s more power than can be commanded by any other hybrid on the road. It’s a combination of unrivalled performance and fuel-economy that hybrid drivers cannot afford to ignore.
Another of the 2017 Honda Accord Hybrid’s notable breakthroughs is the elimination of a traditional transmission system. Instead, the vehicle will intelligently cycle between the following drive modes:
- EV Drive: The electric propulsion motor and lithium ion battery pack are used to send power to the wheels, completely eliminating the need for the gas engine to be ignited. Zero fuel consumption; zero emissions.
- Hybrid Drive: When you need a touch more power, the 2.0L gas engine is used to provide support while the electrical motors are still used to provide power for the front wheels.
- Engine Drive: Sometimes you’ll find yourself requiring all 212 horses that the Accord Hybrid keeps under its hood. In such situations, Engine Drive will be activated to fully combine the gas engine with the electric propulsion system and provide a burst of performance when you need it most.
