Honda looks to conquer all rivals with the Accord Hybrid
We reported in June that Honda was forecasting fuel economy numbers of 49/45/47 (city/highway/combined) for its
upcoming 2014 Accord Hybrid
. Well, it turns out that after further testing, the city number has been nudged up just a tad to an even 50 mpg according to
Even with the 50 mpg city rating, the vehicle will still have a combined fuel efficiency rating of 47 mpg, which is impressive in its own right. The Accord Hybrid easily beats the ratings of the other midsize hybrids and diesels on the market, and matches the combined rating of the Ford Fusion Hybrid (although the Fusion Hybrid, like its
disgraced C-Max sibling
, has encountered
trouble meeting its EPA numbers
The Accord Hybrid uses a 2.0-liter gasoline engine (141 hp), 124 kW electric motor, and a lithium-ion battery pack. The on-sale date for the vehicle is scheduled for October of this year.
