Drivetrain Components and Standard Features

The 2018 Honda Accord Hybrid’s components and features work together to provide an unforgettable touring experience. Each piece of equipment you’ll find under its hood has been fine tuned to maximize your efficiency without sacrificing power or response time.

  • Electronic Continuously Variable Transmission: The Honda Accord Hybrid’s standard Electronic Continuously Variable Transmission works alongside this sedan’s EcoAssist system to ensure that you’re using as little fuel as possible. What’s more, it includes a built in Sport Mode setting and also functions in tandem with your steering wheel- mounted Deceleration Selectors. Four deceleration settings give the Accord Hybrid’s driver an alternative to braking—one which allow this model to charge as you drive.
  • Vehicle Stability Assist: Vehicle Stability Assist with Traction Control comes standard in every Honda Accord—including the Hybrid! With VSA, the rotation speed of your inside or outside tires will change to give you greater control when you’re going around a curve or making a tight turn. This is one safety feature that improves performance as it goes to work!
  • Two-Motor Hybrid System: The Two-Motor Hybrid System maximizes the capabilities of the 2018 Honda Accord Hybrid by combining the strengths of an AC Synchronous Permanent-Magnet Electric Motor with those of a 2.0-Liter Inline 4-Cylidner Atkinson Cycle engine. Under normal circumstances, the gasoline-powered Atkinson Cycle engine will simply charge Accord Hybrid’s battery and motors. However, when you’re traveling at highway speeds, this engine will go to work to give you extra power and maneuverability.
  • Drivetrain Components: The Accord Hybrid’s drivetrain is comprised of a 16-Valve DOHC VTEC, port fuel injection, a Lithium-Ion battery, a Drive-by-Wire Throttle system, Active Noise Cancellation, Hill Start Assist, Push Button Start, and Remote Engine Start.

When it’s active, ECON mode limits the amount of input given by this Honda’s gasoline-powered engine.
  • 2.0-Liter Atkinson Cycle Engine: The Accord Hybrid’s Inline 4-Cylinder engine generates a dependable output that is usually used to charge the Accord Hybrid’s Lithium-Ion Battery and motors. When you’re in need of extra power, however, it can channel its 143 hp and its 129 lb.-ft. of torque directly to the wheels. This power is especially noticeable when you’re traveling on the highway or operating in Sport Mode.
  • AC Synchronous Permanent Magnet Electric Motor: The heart and soul of the Honda Accord Hybrid is its AC Synchronous Permanent Magnet Electric Motor. It can generate up to 232 lb.-ft. of torque between 0 and 2000 rpm and that means you’ll be able to pass and accelerate with ease. It produces 181 hp on its own, and when it’s working in tandem with the Atkinson Cycle engine, you’ll make use of 212 Total System Horsepower.
