Honda Accord Plug-In History
The Honda Accord recently entered its ninth generation of production, revealing a more sculpted exterior. For 2014, Honda added the Accord Plug-In to the diverse Accord family. The Plug-In has the same distinct styling features that have made the new generation of Accords a huge success.
The Plug-In was introduced back at the 2012 Los Angeles Auto Show and was first available as a 2014 model year. Production began on December 21st, 2012, although the Accord Plug-In was first available only to California and New York residents in January 2013. The Accord Plug-In is now available across all 50 states.
As expected, the Honda Accord Plug-In boasts impressive fuel economy. On a full battery, the first model year Accord Plug-In is capable of driving 10 to 15 miles in electric-only driving. Once the battery is depleted, the Plug-In gets 47 mpg in the city and 46 mpg on the highway.
