Honda Automobiles: Honda Earth Dreams Technology™ Two-Motor Hybrid System Named to Green Car Journal’s Top 10 Green Car Technology List for 2014

Posted on 24. Jan, 2014 by in Honda Canada

  • Two-motor hybrid complement that debuted in Honda Accord lineup delivers both class-leading fuel potency and glorious performance
  • Powertrain featured on Honda’s many fuel fit gasoline-powered models, a 115 MPGe Accord Plug-In and 50 mpg Accord Hybrid

Honda’s Earth Dreams Technology™ two-motor hybrid system that helped a 2014 Accord Hybrid acquire an EPA-rated fuel economy of 50 mpg city has been named to Green Car Journal’s Top 10 Green Car Technology List for 2014. Part of an expanding lineup of Honda Earth Dreams Technology powertrains, a innovative two-motor hybrid complement generates class-leading fuel potency but compromising performance.

“Honda’s hybrid record has progressed almost given a introduction of a Insight in 1999,” pronounced Art St. Cyr, clamp boss of Product Planning and Logistics during American Honda. “Today, a Honda two-motor hybrid system that powers a Accord Plug-In and Accord Hybrid is a approach outcome of a joining to emanate modernized car technologies that offer top-of-class fuel economy ratings with a fun-to-drive character.”

The Two-Motor Hybrid System, accessible on a EPA-rated 50 mpg Accord Hybrid1 and a EPA-rated 115 MPGe Accord Plug-in Hybrid1, seamlessly blends electric-only, hybrid and engine expostulate modes along with absolute regenerative braking to yield manageable and fit opening in a far-reaching operation of pushing situations. As a powertrain shifts seamlessly among a 3 pushing modes, a complement utilizes energy from a i-VTEC® 4-cylinder engine and a electric engine to fit a pushing conditions impulse to moment.

The Green Car Technology™ awards respect critical enabling record assisting to emanate a new era of fuel-efficient, alternative-fuel, or low-emission vehicles. Technologies deliberate for a endowment operation from modernized powerplants and drivetrain components to on-board systems that work toward augmenting efficiencies, shortening petroleum use or improving environmental impact. Qualifying technologies contingency be in use by car models now on a marketplace today.

“Honda’s two-motor plug-in hybrid record proves that high potency can go hand-in-hand with pushing enjoyment,” pronounced Ron Cogan, editor and publisher of a Green Car Journal and CarsOfChange.com. “Building on a strengths and superb potency of a two-motor Accord Hybrid, Honda’s Accord Plug-In adds a critical coherence of pushing on hybrid, gasoline, or plug-in battery energy as conditions and needs warrant.”

Honda Environmental Leadership
In serve to a Earth Dreams Technology powertrain suite, Honda is committed to serve advancements in fuel efficiency, with a concentration on a extended focus of technologies such as Eco Assist™, VTEC™ and Variable Cylinder Management™ (VCM™). Honda has also led a Union of Concerned Scientists (UCS) rankings of altogether car environmental opening given 2000, and a Honda car has surfaced a list of America’s greenest vehicles from a America Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy (ACEEE) for 15 uninterrupted years.

150 city/45 highway/47 total mpg rating for Accord Hybrid. 115 total miles per gallon of gasoline-equivalent (MPGe) electric rating; 47 city/46 highway/46 total MPG gasoline usually rating for Accord PHEV. Ratings dynamic by EPA. Use for comparison functions only. Your MPGe/MPG will change depending on pushing conditions, how we expostulate and say your vehicle, battery-package/condition, and other factors.
