Earlier in the month Honda announced its upcoming Accord Hybrid would get a solid 50 miles per gallon in the city. It now has word of specific release date and pricing, as well as sharing the vehicle will be available in three trim grades.
Honda said its hybrid Accord will start at $29,155 for the base model, topping off at $34,905 for the top of the line offering. The cars will be available at dealerships come Halloween, getting not just 50 MPG in the city, but also hitting 45 MPG for highway and 47 MPG combined. All have a calculated driving range of 673 miles, which is said to be 46 miles farther than any vehicle in the segment.
As for features, etc, it depends a lot upon the trim grade. Here’s what Honda has planned:
The Accord Hybrid is built by Honda at its Marysville, Ohio plant assembly line. The Japanese automaker is taking great pride in the fact this hybrid is the first of its kind for it from Ohio, joining the Greensburg, Indiana-built Civic Hybrid as its second hybrid model built in the U.S. It 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.
