2018 Honda Accord Hybrid Performance

The 2018 Honda Accord Hybrid is a fuel-efficient and comfortable sedan that offers drivers a versatile interior and a long list of comfort, convenience, and technology features. But the Accord Hybrid, like Honda’s other hybrid options, doesn’t sacrifice performance in order to achieve impressive fuel economy. U.S. News & World Report says of the Accord Hybrid that “It gets some of the best mpg ratings in the class, and the engine provides ample power.” And with powertrain features, an excellent transmission, and active safety features, the Honda Accord’s power is enhanced to deliver impressive performance on the road.


The engine of the Accord Hybrid is a 2.0L in-line 4 cylinder. It offers drivers quick acceleration, which can make trickier driving situations, such as merging or passing, much easier. The engine alone produces up to 143 horsepower and 129 lb-ft of torque and contributes to the total system horsepower along with the electric engine.

The Accord Hybrid features an AC Synchronous Permanent Magnet Electric Motor that is powered by a lithium-ion battery. Unlike other hybrids, the motor is no longer housed behind the rear seats, taking up valuable cargo space in the trunk, but instead sits underneath the rear seats. This makes the trunk in the Accord Hybrid measure 17 cubic feet, the same as the gas-powered Accord models. The electric motor produces 181 horsepower and 232 lb.-ft of torque. Along with the horsepower generated by the engine, the Accord Hybrid achieves 212 hp for the total system.


The Accord Hybrid features an Electronic Continuously Variable Transmission (E-CVT) with Sport Mode and Deceleration Selectors. It works in tandem with the motor and engine system and transfers the power produced to the front wheels. And with the Sport Mode feature and deceleration selectors, performance on the road is enhanced and the experience behind the wheel is more fun and thrilling.

The Accord Hybrid has a tank capacity of 12.8 gallons and an EPA estimated fuel economy of 47 mpg*.
