2005 Honda Accord Hybrid: First Hybrid Accord

Following on the success of the Civic Hybrid and the Insight, Honda launched the Accord Hybrid in 2005, but with little success.

Using hybrid technology to add power, rather than maximize fuel economy, it mated electric thrust to a V6 engine to improve power from 240-hp to 255-hp, while torque rose from 212 lb-ft to 265 lb-ft. Priced $3,000 above the conventional V6, it proved too rich for some and not fuel efficient enough for others.

Honda’s Accord Hybrid is, however, making a major comeback in 2013 with the Accord Plug-in Hybrid.

    That Accord AeroDeck is perhaps the coolest Accord ever, although it bears a striking resemblance to an early 80′s Civic hatchback.  And I agree, much better than the downright awful-looking Crosstour and it’s badge-engineered cousin the Acura ZDX.
