Honda's newest EV comes in the form of one of its most popular sedan models. The 2014 Honda Accord Plug-In Hybrid, set for production in the summer of 2013, moves Honda much deeper into electrification than its former mild electric Integrated Motor Assist technology. The Accord Plug-In will travel up to 15 miles purely on electric power, about 40% more than the all-electric range of the plug-in version of Toyota's Prius, but less than the Ford Fusion Energi and less than half the all-electric range Chevy Volt.

The plug-in Accord Hybrid will stay in all-electric mode longer than the plug-in Prius under full acceleration but, like the Prius, still relies on its gas engine for higher speeds. The car will run on electric power up to about 40 mph and then shifts into hybrid mode, switching on the 2.4-liter direct-injection four-cylinder engine. The Accord Plug-In allows drivers to choose between three different driving modes: all electric, hybrid driving; which directs power to the wheels from the electric motor and the four-cylinder engine, and series-hybrid which recharges the battery. The Accord Plug-In is estimated to achieve 115 MPGe, the highest among similar sized hybrid sedans.
