In October, we noted that the Ford C-Max Energi Plug-In Hybrid Electric Vehicle (PHEV) had become the most fuel-efficient PHEV on the market. It has a combined rating of 100 MPGe. Well, the 2014 Honda Accord PHEV has just trounced that, with an EPA rating of 115 MPGe. (Note that the popular and trendsetting Chevy Volt has a 98 MPGe rating, and the Prius Plug-In landed a rating of 95 MPGe.)
Some 2014 Honda Accord PHEV stats:
- 13 miles of all-electric range (doesn’t sound like a lot, but the huge majority of trips are within that range).
- 47 MPG rating in city, 46 MPG on highway.
- Starting price: $39,780.
The 2014 Honda Accord PHEV is supposed to go on sale January 15 in California and New York.
And yes, the vehicle will qualify for single-occupancy access on California’s carpool lanes.
