The 2014 Honda Accord Hybrid, set to hit dealers later this year, has earned an EPA-estimated 50 mpg city and has a driving range of 673 miles, making it the class leader in fuel economy.
The Accord lineup, already fuel-efficient with models like the Accord Sedan and Plug-in, adds the 2014 Honda Accord Hybrid. Along with its current EPA ratings of 50/45/47 mpg city/highway/combined, the Accord Hybrid also delivers sophisticated styling and a spacious interior. The new model is powered by an efficient two-motor hybrid powertrain from Honda’s Earth Dreams Technology series.
“Even before it hits showrooms this fall, the Accord Hybrid is already surpassing the competition and claiming segment leadership. For customers looking for a 50 mpg rated four-door sedan, there is no other choice than the 2014 Accord Hybrid,” said Mike Accavitti, senior vice president of auto operations at American Honda, in a statement.
Production for the new model began today at the Marysville Auto Plant in Ohio, marking the first Honda hybrid vehicle to be produced at the plant. The automaker has invested $18.8 million to expand the plant by 94,000 square feet and add 50 new full-time jobs to support the production of the 2014 Honda Accord Hybrid.
