The fuel efficiency of hybrid cars is often reflected in the price, so the cheaper hybrids tend to be less fuel efficient ones. If it’s too good to be true, it probably is! Speaking of which, the 2018 Accord hybrid achieved 1 MPG less than the 2017 Accord hybrid. Not surprising!
However, the fuel economy of the 2018 Accord hybrid is a reasonable 47 MPG combined (not to be confused with the MPGe ratings of plug-in hybrids), 47 MPG city, and 47 MPG highway, while the combined fuel economy of its non-hybrid counterpart is 27 MPG (the same 2.0 litre 4-cylinder engine).
The 2017 Accord hybrid fuel economy is a slightly better 48 MPG combined, 49 MPG city, and 47 MPG highway. A small price to pay for a more than $4,000+ decrease in the base model price.
The 2018 Honda Accord hybrid has a total horsepower output of 212 HP (and a fair 232 foot-pounds of torque, which is 314 Newton-meters), provided by a 2.0-litre 4-cylinder engine coupled with an electric motor.
