The Accord Hybrid utilizes an engine and motor combination system to generate its power under the hood. Working in tandem with the electric motor is a 2.0L in-line 4-cylinder engine that delivers reliable and dynamic performance on the road and contributes 143 horsepower and 129 lb-ft of torque to the total engine-motor hybrid powertrain.


Alongside the engine is an efficient AC Synchronous Permanent Magnet Electric Motor that is powered by a lithium-ion battery. Unlike previous models, the 2018 Accord Hybrid moves the motor from behind the rear seats to under them. The move frees up valuable cargo space in the trunk, giving the Accord Hybrid the same 17 cubic feet of cargo volume as the other traditional engine models. On its own, the motor contributes 181 horsepower and 232 lb.-ft of torque, for 212 total horsepower.
