50 MPG Rated 2014 Honda Accord Hybrid Priced to Treat Starting on Halloween
October 31, 2013
Fuel prices can be scary, but the Accord Hybrid will take some of the fright out of going to the gas pump when it debuts at US dealers nationwide on Halloween (October 31). Honda treats its customers to the well-equipped 2014 version in three grades; loaded with premium standard features including LaneWatch technology, a rearview camera, and LED DRL lighting; and with the highest EPA-rated city mpg of any four-door sedan in America.
“With advanced technologies standard on every Accord Hybrid, we’ve given customers an incredible combination of fuel efficiency, technology, and value,” said John Mendel, executive vice president of sales at American Honda. “The addition of the Accord Hybrid to the lineup will further advance Accord’s position as America’s most popular passenger car with individual buyers.”
Every new 2014 Honda Accord Hybrid is equipped with numerous standard features including Honda’s exclusive LaneWatch blind spot display system, a premium feature not even available on any competitive hybrid models. Additional standard features include a rearview camera, LED daytime running lights (DRL), an expanded view driver’s mirror, Bluetooth HandsFreeLink, USB/iPod integration, Pandora compatibility, SMS text message function, dual-zone automatic climate control, alloy wheels, a driver’s seat with 10-way power adjustment, and a 160-watt AM/FM/CD audio system.
The Accord Hybrid EX-L is equipped with advanced safety technologies such as Forward Collision Warning (FCW) and Lane Departure Warning (LDW) along with leather-trimmed and heated front seats and the HondaLink cloud-based media and connectivity system featuring Aha compatibility. Power driver’s seat memory, front passenger seat with four-way power adjustment, and one-touch moonroof are also standard on the EX-L trim.
With EPA fuel-economy ratings of 50 mpg city/45 mpg highway/47 mpg combined, the 2014 Accord Hybrid is the top-rated four-door sedan in America in the EPA city cycle. Highlighting both form and function, it blends the sophisticated exterior styling and spacious interior packaging of the Accord sedan with a highly efficient two-motor hybrid system from Honda’s Earth Dreams Technology advanced powertrain series.
The 2014 Honda Accord Hybrid is the first Honda hybrid vehicle produced in Ohio, at the company’s Marysville Auto Plant, and joins the Greensburg, Indiana-built Civic Hybrid as the second Honda hybrid model built in the US, using domestic and globally sourced parts. Honda invested $18.8 million in a 94,000-square-foot expansion of the Marysville Auto Plant, along with the addition of 50 new full-time jobs to handle the special processes specific to the production of this advanced hybrid model.
