2014 Honda Accord Plug-In HybridEnlarge Photo
The 2014 Honda Accord Plug-In Hybrid will go on sale early next year in selected markets, California being one of the main ones. It will be followed in a few months by the regular 2014 Accord Hybrid (no plug), which will be sold nationally from the start.
No prices have been announced, but you can expect the plug-in hybrid to be the most expensive Accord. It's got essentially every feature of the top-of-the-line Accord EX-L, plus the plug-in hybrid system--so we expect it to leave the lot at $40,000 or more.
Its large battery pack qualifies it for a $3,750 Federal income-tax credit, and it will--Honda says--qualify for single-occupant access to California's HOV Lanes, making it even more valuable to harried Golden State commuters.
