While you’re on the move, your Accord Hybrid will switch between three driving modes: EV drive, Engine drive and Hybrid drive to help with efficiency. EV drive takes power from the lithium-ion battery, while Engine drive pulls from the 2.0-litre engine. In Hybrid drive, it’ll combine the two modes.
The Accord Hybrid uses our unique Electronic-Continuously Variable Transmission (E-CVT) system to manage interactions between the two electric motors and the gasoline engine by drawing from the fuel tank only when needed.
Working together as one, the Eco Assist™ System and ECON™ button help nurse your fuel. The green and white bars on your speedometer are designed to track how efficiently you’re driving. The more you keep the bars green, the farther you’ll go on a tank.
When sport mode is activated, your Accord Hybrid will summon more power without any hesitation. It finds a sweet spot in your engine’s RPM to deliver a more exhilarating drive, every time.
Teamed up with the motor generator, regenerative braking helps replenish your battery every time you hit the brakes.
