Honda [2] has released fuel economy ratings and pricing for the all-new 2014 Honda Accord Plug-in hybrid [3], which is slated to arrive in January. The EPA has rated the Accord Plug-in hybrid at 115 MPGe, which is a higher rating than other plug-in hybrid models like the Ford C-Max Energi [4] (100 MPGe), Chevy Volt [5] (98 MPGe), and Prius Plug-in (95 MPGe).

The 2014 Accord Plug-in hybrid [3] has an all-electric range of 13 miles, and a fuel-economy rating of 47 mpg city and 46 mpg on the highway. Although the Accord has a higher MPGe rating than the 2013 Ford Fusion Energi [6], its closest competitor, the Fusion Energi has a longer EV range of around 20 miles. Honda has announced that the 2014 Accord Plug-in hybrid [3] will start at $39,780 when it goes on sale on January 15 in California and New York. The Accord Plug-in will also qualify for single-occupant carpool-lane access in California.

When the all-new Accord was unveiled in September, Honda [2] also announced plans to release a regular Accord hybrid as well. Honda has now announced that the Accord Hybrid will launch next summer and will be rated at 49 mpg in the city and 45 mpg on the highway. Honda [2] hasn’t released any photos of the Accord Hybrid, but has stated that its styling will be more closely aligned with the standard Accord sedan.
