We were the first and now we’re the best – Honda’s hybrid is back in action and has a lot to prove. From introducing the first gas-electric hybrid vehicle to the United States – the Honda Insight – to reintroducing the new-and-improved Honda Accord Hybrid, Honda’s innovation is what keeps our drivers coming back for more.
The new Honda Accord Hybrid is kind of a big deal. These amazing accolades are partly in thanks to Honda’s Eco Assist technology helping drivers and cars work better together to improve fuel efficiency. And who would have thought that a car with such awesome EPA ratings would have such strong acceleration? Not only is the Accord Hybrid top-notch in the fuel economy field, this industry-leading hybrid doesn’t sacrifice the driving experience!
The same goes for the Accord Hybrid’s new electrically assisted brakes. While totally reengineered to use mostly regenerative braking, they give crisp top-of-pedal response that’s easy to modulate. The brakes don’t stick nor are they ineffective like those in many other brands’ hybrids and electrics.
