Honda is all set to introduce an Accord Plug-in Hybrid sometime next year. The EV is being built to conquer the markets with its enhancements and hybrid design technologies adopted by the car maker.
Details are limited, but the car will most likely adopt the plug-in hybrid technology that was showcased at the Los Angeles Auto Show.
This means, we can expect the Accord to feature a 2.0-liter four-cylinder petrol engine, a 6 kWh lithium-ion battery, and an electric motor that develops 161 hp (120 kW / 163 PS).
Thanks to this setup, the Accord would be able to travel up to 10 to 15 miles (16 to 24 km) on electricity alone at speeds up to 62 mph (100 km/h).
Furthermore, the battery could be recharged in 2 to 2.5 hours with a conventional 120 volt household outlet or 1 to 1.5 hours with a 240 volt rapid charger.
Though the vehicle won’t be having the inductive charging mechanism, the automotive is having a highly efficient charging system and along with the face lift Honda is providing the vehicle with, it should be a show stopper.
The world is waiting anxiously for the next big motor show where modern designs and technologies will come face to face. Yes, the era of eco friendly efficient automotives are here.
