The 2015 Honda Accord Hybrid has made it to the list of the Top 10 Green Cars of 2015. Gasoline powered hybrids are a top draw nowadays, towering over standalone electric vehicles and hybrid plugins. The list was formulated, keeping in mind certain factors such as price, trade value, manufacturing quality and average fuel economy.
The 2015 Honda Accord is currently placed fifth on the charts and even though we do not officially recognize the authority of the list, we cannot undermine the credibility of the Honda Accord Hybrid. The Accord is an exceptionally well engineered and refined vehicle, which, if you ask us, is the most refined of all Accords manufactured to date!
Experts claim that the Honda Accord is one of the best value-for-money vehicles in the American auto industry today, sporting a sophisticated powertrain along with over 50 MPG fuel economy. Combining these factors make the Honda Accord fun to drive and easy on the pocket. The drivetrain on the Honda Accord Hybrid has been designed to run on a combination of electric and gasoline power. The vehicle can barely run on a few miles on electric power alone.
The best part about the deal is that, you can’t feel the combustion engine kick in while driving in heavy city traffic! Honda claims that the 2015 Accord Hybrid has a combined fuel economy of 47 MPG, which is a commendable figure, considering the size of the vehicle. The only downside to the deal is that the Hybrid is not available as a hatchback.
In a recent press release, Executive Vice President, John Mendel, announced that the production of the Honda Accord Hybrid will be shifted from Marysville, Ohio to Sayama, Japan. Honda’s plant at Sayama handles low volumes of plug-in Hybrid Accord at the moment while the management wants to start mass producing the Hybrid soon. Honda is yet to issue a statement clarifying the move, although, experts believe that it is primarily a budget-cutting move.
