When Honda builds a hybrid, you’ve got to be sure it’s a marvel this is the next generation Accord, the ninth generation to be precise, a power lord at its heart. A revolutionary in its soul. The All-New Honda Accord hybrid features Sport Hybrid i-MMD a cutting edge Honda-developed powertrain. The advanced hybrid system belongs to the Earth Dreams Technology series of next-gen powertrain technologies combining enjoyable driving with outstanding fuel economy.
Earth Dreams® Technology – The powerful and efficient 2 litre, 4-cylinder engine with innovative Earth Dreams Technology. A hybrid electric vehicle combines a conventional internal combustion engine propulsion system with an electric propulsion system (hybrid drivetrain). Many hybrids reduce idle emissions by shutting down the combustion engine at idle and restarting it when needed; this is known as a start-stop system.
Made of Power. Made of Dreams. Made of Honda.
This is general model information, and some of the features and/or specifications mentioned may not be available on all variants.
The New Honda Accord Hybrid has three driving modes, the EV Drive, the Hybrid Drive and the Engine Drive, that yield a remarkable combination of performance and efficiency. The two-motor system is capable of operating as either a serial or parallel hybrid or an electric vehicle, based on the needs of the driver. In the ‘EV Drive’ mode, the propulsion motor provides a motive force, drawing energy from the lithium ion battery and operates as an electric-only vehicle. In the ‘Hybrid Drive’ mode, the engine is initially started by the generator motor, then it begins to power the generator, which provides energy to the motor and the battery can assist with power as required.
The Accord Hybrid spends most of its time in this mode and operates as a series hybrid. In the Engine Drive mode, the clutch connects the engine and driveline, and the engine power is directly sent to the wheels. The motor can also provide power assist as necessary. In this mode, the Accord Hybrid operates as a parallel hybrid.
