Honda Accord Plug-in Hybrid confirmed for production image

The Japanese based automaker Honda has recently announced its plans to offer a Plug-in Hybrid version of the Accord, which should make its way on the U.S. soil later on this year.

Honda has managed to put a stop on a lot of rumors once the production of the Accord Plug-in Hybrid has been confirmed. The model in question has a lot of chances of becoming the most fuel-efficient sedan on the American soil, but only if the price will put it in reach of most customers. The brand new Honda Accord Plug-in Hybrid is expected to make its public debut, on its local auto market, on the 20th of June, and from there, it will be launched in the U.S. too.

The new Honda Accord Plug-in Hybrid is expected to make its way onto the market with a two-motor hybrid system, which is made out of a 141 HP (105 kW) electric motor and a 2.0 liter four-cylinder Atkinson cycle unit. The total output produced by the powertrain should stand at 196 HP (146 kW). Fuel consumption figures are expected to stand at 49 / 45 mpg in city / highway. Additional details on the Honda Accord Plug-in Hybrid are limited for the moment and will be announced closer to its launch.
