Honda's two-motor Accord Plug-In Hybrid is now on sale at select New York and Californian Honda dealers.

Choice in the plug-in hybrid market is growing all the time, and the Accord offers buyers an alternative to the Ford Fusion Energi--not to mention more established plug-ins like the Chevrolet Volt and Toyota Prius Plug-In.

The 115 MPGe electric, 46 MPG hybrid sedan is Honda's most advanced hybrid yet.

Rather than using the firm's simpler Integrated Motor Assist mild-hybrid system, the Accord Plug-In is a full, two-motor hybrid, allowing all-electric travel. You'll get up to 13 miles on electricity alone, and good gas mileage thereafter--47 mpg city and 46 highway, going towards that 46 mpg combined.

It's also the first car to attain tough LEV3/SULEV20 emissions standards, making it one of the cleanest vehicles on the roads--and able to qualify for single-occupant access in California's carpool lanes.

Honda says a full charge of its 6.7 kilowatt-hour lithium-ion battery takes less than three hours, on a standard 120-volt circuit. At 240 volts, it'll recharge in less than an hour.

THe 2014 Honda Accord Plug-In Hybrid starts at $39,780 plus a $790 destination charge and other fees. You can also lease Honda's plug-in, at $429 per month over 36 months, with $2,499 due at signing, plus fees.

So with more plug-ins on the market than ever before, which would you choose?

  1. Sounds pretty good. Great highway and in town mileage even when the battery pack is depleted. For the money, I think I might still opt for the Volt. But what an improvement over the previous Honda hybrids. But since I can't afford either, maybe the 2015 Fit will offer a hybrid plugin? I could only hope...

    Bad stuff?

  2. I got to test drive it and found to be a better drive than the Volt, purely on handling. As far as daily operations, it's on par with it. It felt tighter, much more sure footed than the Volt and felt more luxurious, but then again, this is a second generation vehicle from a company that has woken up very hungry. The price will have to come down.

  3. How is its trunk?

    It should be "ligher" than the Volt so it should be better in handling.

    How fast does it go in Electric mode?

  4. Since it is on sale, can anyone provide the picture and size spec of the trunk?

  5. I'd like to know where they are. Cars.com does not list any 2014 Hondas in inventory in the whole country. My local dealer says they do not expect one for several weeks.

  6. Does anyone have a copy of the EPA/DOT window sticker (a/k/a the Fuel Economy and Environment label) for the Accord plug-in?
