Now in its ninth generation at our Frankfort-area Honda dealer, the Honda Accord has gained a new model this year. The 2014 Honda Accord Plug-In Hybrid is one of the very few midsized sedans currently available with Plug-In capabilities. This allows the driver to charge the vehicle and drive solely on electric power, reducing gasoline usage. Let’s look at some of the key attributes of this new model.

Hybrid Powertrain and Fuel Economy

Of prime interest for most buyers will be the hybrid powertrain and how much they’ll be able to save on gas. The 2014 Honda Plug-In comes with a 2.0L four-cylinder engine, an electric power engine, and a 6.7 kilowatt lithium-ion battery, all set over a continuously variable transmission. With that battery, the Accord can drive for a maximum of 13 miles using only electric power.*

There are a total of three different driving modes: full electric, gasoline, and gas/electric. There are also two sub modes while you’re in gas/electric. Altogether the 2014 Honda Accord Plug-In Hybrid has been estimated at 47 mpg city and 46 mpg highway.*

Vehicle Features

There’s only one trim level available for the new 2014 hybrid, but it’s quite well-equipped. You can expect standard Bluetooth connectivity which can be used via an eight-inch touchscreen. Using this, you’ll be able to access your smartphone apps, a rearview camera, and a navigation system. Other features include dual-zone automatic climate control, front and rear heated seats, and bio-fabric upholstery.

Safety Features

Beyond the latest accessories, the Accord Plug-In Hybrid comes with many advanced safety features like lane departure warning, forward-collision warning, and blind spot monitoring. One nifty feature is the LaneWatch blind-spot system: if you want to change lanes, flip on the turn signal and a camera on the exterior mirror will show up on the touchscreen so you can view your blind spot.
