The Honda Accord Hybrid will be available in Completely Built –Up
(CBU) form and will be imported from the Honda plant in Thailand. The Honda Accord is into its 40th year,
having been launched in 1976. The Accord has sold more than 21 million units all
over the world, of which the 9th
generation since its launch in 2012 sold 1.9 million units alone . In these
last 40 years the car has undergone a lot of changes and its latest avatar, the
9th generation Honda Accord Hybrid, is a mix of high end engine
technology wrapped so efficiently with delicate green cover. The Honda Accord
Hybrid is powered by a 2.0 litre Atkinson cycle DOHC 16 valves i-VTEC engine
along with an Intelligent Multi-mode Drive (i-MMD) 2-motor hybrid system.
The Honda’s i-MMD uses a two motor hybrid system with three
operating modes—EV Drive, Hybrid Drive and Engine Drive. The Honda Accord has
an Electric Continuously Variable Transmission (E-CVT) and mind you unlike a
conventional CVT, it uses two motors for driving and generating power.
