The 2014 Honda Accord Hybrid and Accord Plug-In Hybrid add a pair of new hybrid options to the latest generation of Accord mid-size sedans. Restyled and updated for the 2013 model year in gas-only form, the Accord line expands for the 2014 model year to include both a standard hybrid and the company’s first-ever plug-in hybrid.

The standard Accord Hybrid competes with hybrid models of the Ford Fusion, Hyundai Sonata, Kia Optima, and Toyota Camry, while the plug-in version competes with the Ford Fusion Energi also a plug-in hybrid and the Chevrolet Volt. The standard Accord Hybrid goes on sale in October 2013, while the plug-in model has been available in a small handful of selected markets largely  in California since January.

Two Accord generations ago, Honda offered a hybrid powertrain in its mainstream sedan. But it was a performance-oriented V-6 hybrid that never achieved the lofty fuel-economy numbers that eco buyers crave. Now, Honda is jumping back into the game with a new, efficiency-oriented Accord hybrid, and its mileage is impressive. It’s rated by the EPA at 47 in the city and 46 on the highway. Moreover, it’s a plug-in hybrid, and when operating on electric power, it gets 124 mpge in the city and 105 on the highway. Its combined rating of 115 mpge is bested only by Honda’s much smaller Fit EV.

To achieve this efficiency, the Accord plug-in uses an Earth Dreams 2.0 liter four-cylinder engine this translates to a hybrid-typical Atkinson-cycle engine coupled to a pair of electric motors, powered by a 6.7-kWh lithium-ion battery. The coupling arrangement is not the Integrated Motor Assist that Honda uses on other hybrids. Instead, it’s more like the Toyota and Ford systems, with a 166-hp AC traction motor and a smaller motor generator connected in such a way that the electric and gasoline power can be seamlessly blended.

2014 Honda Accord Price :
All this technical excellence costs a pretty penny 4,057,000 of them although you do get a federal tax rebate of $3636, which brings the price down to $36,934. Compared with a well-equipped conventional Accord, which costs about six grand less, if you drive 10,000 miles in 20-mile chunks, with a full charge between each one, the plug-in will save you about $750. At that rate, you’ll break even after 80,000 miles.

2014 Honda Accord Interior :
With a few exceptions, the 2014 Honda Accord Plug-In Hybrid features an elegant and well-constructed cabin trimmed with high-quality materials that you could almost mistake for an Acura. The center stack embraces the spirit of legibility with an effective three-tier layout, capped at the top with an 8-inch display.

Despite the new Accord’s slightly smaller exterior dimensions compared to the previous generation, its interior room remains impressive. There is plenty of leg and shoulder space for front occupants, and rear-seat passengers should be quite comfortable and happy. Road and tire noise often among Honda’s traditional weaknesses are noticeably reduced in the 2014 Accord thanks in part to two active noise-cancellation systems plus improved aerodynamics.

Standard features include 17-inch alloy wheels, LED headlights, foglamps, dual-zone automatic climate control, full power accessories, a rearview camera, adaptive cruise control, a tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, special “bio-fabric” upholstery, heated front and rear seats, an eight-way power driver seat (with power lumbar), driver memory settings and a leather-wrapped steering wheel. Electronic features include Bluetooth connectivity, an 8-inch touchscreen interface, voice recognition, a navigation system and a six-speaker sound system with satellite radio, an iPod/USB interface and smartphone app integration (HondaLink). Adaptive cruise control, lane-departure warning and a blind-spot monitor are also standard.

2014 Honda Accord Exterior :
Unlike Honda’s other hybrids such as the Insight, the Plug-In has an all-new hybrid system that’s capable of accelerating the car using pure electric power. And as its name implies, the Plug-In can be recharged externally, thereby minimizing gas usage. Honda says the Accord Plug-In provides about 10-15 miles of pure electric range, after which point it switches over to normal hybrid operation. In regular hybrid mode, this Accord earns EPA estimates of 47 mpg city/46 mpg highway and 46 mpg combined.

Like the standard Accord, the plug-in hybrid offers similar features and comes in one well-appointed trim level based on the standard Accord Touring trim. That includes LED headlights, a rearview camera, Bluetooth, a navigation system and monitoring of vitals like charge status, charging stations and even enabled remote charging controlled by smartphone apps. Honda says a full battery charge on a 120-volt outlet will take three hours, while charging on a 240-volt outlet takes less than one hour.

2014 Honda Accord Engine :
The Accord system is smooth, efficient, and reasonably peppy, accelerating to 60 mph in 7.7 seconds and covering the quarter-mile in 16.1 seconds at 88 mph. That makes the Accord the quickest PHEV on the market, now that the Fisker Karma has bitten the dust.

With a fully charged battery, the Accord’s electric range is rated by the EPA at 13 miles. We measured 13.7 during an urban/suburban drive at the speed limit plus 5 mph. In the process, the Accord used 3.6 kWh of electricity, equivalent to 3.85 miles per kWh, an excellent figure. After the gas engine cut in, we averaged 42 mpg on a 500-mile drive from Ann Arbor to Michigan’s west coast and back.

The 2014 Honda Accord Plug-In Hybrid is powered by a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine combined with an electric motor. Together, they send a total of 196 horsepower to the front wheels through a continuously variable transmission (CVT). A 6.7 kWh lithium-ion battery pack powers the electric motor.

The Accord Plug-In Hybrid offers three driving modes: full electric, gas/electric (switches when battery capacity depletes to a specific threshold) and gasoline (for higher speeds or under high demand for acceleration). Additionally, two sub-modes tailor the Accord Plug-In’s hybrid mode. “HV” acts as a conventional hybrid, blending gasoline and electric power for optimum fuel efficiency, while “HV Charge” does the same, while feeding energy back into the battery.

Honda says it expects EPA ratings of 47 mpg combined (49 mpg city, 45 mpg highway) for the Accord Hybrid. That matches the best of the segment, the Ford Fusion Hybrid, and is higher than the Hyundai Sonata and Kia Optima hybrids at 38 mpg combined, and the Toyota Camry Hybrid at 41 mpg. Whether the hybrid Accord can deliver 47 mpg in real-world use remains to be seen; the Fusion Hybrid largely seems to come in at 36 to 42 mpg.

The heavier Plug-In Hybrid is rated at 46 mpg combined (47 mpg city, 46 mpg highway) when operating in gasoline/hybrid mode once its larger battery pack has been depleted. The EPA rates that model’s electric range at 13 miles, greater than the Toyota Prius Plug-In Hybrid at 11 miles (and only 6 miles continuous) but lower than the 21 miles of the Fusion Energi or the 38 miles of the Chevrolet Volt.

The EPA rates the Accord Plug-In Hybrid’s efficiency in electric mode at 115 MPGe, higher than the Fusion Energi’s 100 MPGe. (Miles-Per-Gallon-Equivalent measures the distance a car can travel electrically on the same energy as contained in 1 gallon of gasoline.)

While Honda has sold mild hybrids which don’t offer all-electric running since 2000, its previous Accord Hybrid in 2004-2007 was tuned for performance rather than fuel economy. Confused consumers didn’t get it, and the model was withdrawn.
