2014 Honda Accord
Honda recently redesigned its Honda Accord, improving the sedan's interior and exterior styling. For 2014, the Honda Accord gains a new model, the Accord Plug-In Hybrid.
The 2014 Accord Plug-In Hybrid combines an electric motor with a 2.0-liter four-cylinder gas engine. With a continuously variable transmission (CVT), the Accord Hybrid should deliver 10-15 miles of pure electric range, and Honda predicts fuel economy of 49 mpg city/45 mpg highway and 47 mpg combined. That's enough to give the Accord Hybrid a place at the table with the forthcoming Ford Fusion Energi and rumored Hyundai Sonata plug-in.
