The Honda Accord Hybrid will be imported to India on basis of confirmed orders. This will be the ninth generation of the Accord.
Honda is bringing back the Accord to India in the coming few weeks. The premium sedan was discontinued back in 2013, but now the ninth generation of the vehicle could make its way with an all new hybrid engine. The Honda Accord Hybrid will come to India via the CBU (completely built unit) route.
The Honda Accord Hybrid is powered by a 2.0-litre, i-VTEC engine with two electric motors paired to a lithium-ion battery pack and an electronic control unit to churn up 209 BHP of power. The sedan uses a two motor hybrid system which will be used for the first time in this segment. One motor is used to accelerate from a dead spot, while the second one starts the engine and charges the first motor.
However the Honda Accord Hybrid is only to be imported on confirmed order basis. The upcoming D-segment sedan will come with a sporty stance along with a chrome grille, redesigned bumpers, new headlamps with an LED strip. The dash will feature push button start, multi-information display, dual-zone automatic climate control system, steering-mounted controls, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto support, reverse parking camera, six airbags and more.
The Accord Hybrid will be Honda’s second hybrid model in India (after the Civic Hybrid) and could be priced upwards of Rs. 30 lakhs. It will compete against the Toyota Camry Hybrid.
