The Honda Accord Hybrid has been launched in India at Rs 37 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi). This is the new flagship sedan for the Japanese automaker and is available in a single top-of-the-line variant and across four colour options.
Firstly, the Accord Hybrid is powered by a combination of a 2.4-litre petrol four-cylinder petrol engine and two electric motors that work together to produce 215bhp/315Nm of torque with power going to the front wheels via an e-CVT.
It embodies all the classic design features of the Accord name plate like the large overhangs, low stance and chrome grille. However, what is new is a host of technologies and features like full LED lamps, leather upholstery, touchscreen infotainment system, electrically adjustable front seats and massive cabin space. The Accord Hybrid goes up against the Toyota Camry Hybrid. It is priced Rs 7 lakh more than the latter by virtue of it being a CBU while the Toyota is locally assembled.
Commenting on the launch of the Accord Hybrid, Yoichiro Ueno, president and CEO said, “It is always our endeavour to offer Honda’s latest technology and products to the Indian customers and the introduction of the Accord Hybrid is in line with our commitment. The all new Honda Accord Hybrid is automotive perfection with many dimensions of advanced technology and safety systems. With its luxurious design from exterior to interior, I’m confident that the Honda Accord Hybrid is the perfect response to our customer’s demands for a car that will reflect their identity and vision of being ahead of others.”
