Honda will unveil a standard 2014 Accord Hybrid in Japan on June 20. The new proposed model will look to overcome all negatives that the Accord Plug-in Hybrid brought along. Though the earlier Accord Plug-in Hybrid was pushed out of the Honda stables promising much, it couldn’t charm customers much.
The car, of course, is considered the most fuel-efficient sedan in America. But when it comes to the price, it turned tough for most customers to spend on it. Only limited details of the new model were launched.
The new upcoming variant will come bearing a two-motor hybrid system, which would pack a 137 bhp (102kW) 2.0-liter four-cylinder Aktinson-cycle engine and a 141 bhp(105 kW) electric motor.
This should enable the sedan to return a combined ultimate output of 196 bhp (146 kW). The fuel consumption rating is 49 mpg city/ 45 mpg highway.
The new American model is expected to sport some awesome styling and the price might start from the $20,000 level.
Honda expects to bring back the smiles on customers’ faces with the new model.
