Benefits of Owning a Hybrid Car
There are tons of benefits to owning a Honda hybrid vehicle. For one, you’re getting impressive fuel-economy ratings. Since these cars use less fuel, you can spend as much time on the road as you’d like. Not only can you run all your errands during the day, but you can ultimately save money at the pump.
Another advantage to having a Honda hybrid car has to do with the environment. These automobiles don’t produce as much carbon emissions as a gasoline-only car. As a result, you can help contribute to cleaner air when driving around town.
The Honda Accord Hybrid is a midsize sedan that comes with a next-generation 2-motor hybrid system. The system consists of a 2.0L 4-cylinder engine and two electric motors. Together, they produce 212 horsepower to easily handle any type of driving situation.
The vehicle then comes standard with an Eco Assist™ System, which helps you develop and maintain a fuel-efficient driving style. It’ll monitor your driving patterns and display how that impacts the vehicle’s fuel-economy ratings. Then, you can make changes to get the most out of the Accord Hybrid’s efficiency.
Overall, though, you’re getting an EPA-estimated 48 city/48 highway MPG for the standard Hybrid, Hybrid EX, and EX-L trims.1 As a result, this vehicle would be more than capable of really going the distance.
Clarity Plug-in Hybrid
This last vehicle in the Honda Clarity family is the Clarity Plug-in Hybrid. This car offers the benefits of an electric car with the freedom of a hybrid.
What exactly does that mean? You have a 47-mile all-electric-range rating with its standard and Touring trims, which means you can make lots of trips on battery power alone. If you’re taking a longer trip, the gas-powered 1.5L 4-cylinder engine will take over to provide additional driving range—delivering a 340-mile combined gas and electric range rating for both standard and Touring trim levels.2
What’s also unique about this vehicle is that you can recharge it while driving. There are several driving modes to choose from, including HV mode. This one uses the gas engine and one of the electric motors to help recharge the battery while cruising, making things as convenient for you as possible.
The Honda CR-V Hybrid is a compact SUV that boasts an EPA-estimated 40 city/35 highway MPG across its EX, EX-L, and Touring trims.3
Equipped with a 2.0L DOHC i-VTEC® Atkinson-cycle engine and an electric motor, this SUV has 212 system net horsepower and offers 232 lb-ft of torque. You’ll also have access to the deceleration selectors mounted on the steering wheel, which allow you to control the amount of power regenerated to the electric motor when you brake.
This vehicle also comes with the Power Flow Monitor, which will show you which motor is supplying the car with power and how much charge your electric motor has. You can access this via the Driver Information Interface located directly in front of the steering wheel, or via your infotainment system. This is great for keeping informed on the important aspects of your vehicle.
Finally, you have the Honda Insight, a compact car that achieves an EPA-estimated 55 city/49 highway MPG in its LX and EX trims.4
This automobile comes with a 1.5L 4-cylinder engine and an electric motor. Together, they deliver 151.5 horsepower. Plus, the powertrain is mated to an electronic continuously variable transmission (e-CVT), which provides the same kind of seamless shifting that you’d find in an automatic transmission.
Furthermore, the vehicle comes standard with a 3-Mode Drive System. It features ECON Mode, which helps optimize power and accessory load for maximum efficiency. There’s Sport Mode, which will use the electric motor more aggressively for quicker acceleration. Then there’s EV Mode, which uses the electric motor only and is great for short distances.
