Overall review of New 2014 Honda accord plug in electric car
By syezarsk on
Vehicle2014 Honda Accord Plug-In Hybrid 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)
ReviewWe purchased a new 2014 Honda accord hybrid electric in april.
The car is a dream to drive.
In full electric mode it goes 16 miles before the hybrid kicks in.
since my wife drives 12 miles to work and recharges on 110v at work, she ave over 199 miles in electric mode.
overall in electric and hybrid in the city it ave over 68mph.
Only when you have to drive on frwy does it ave in the high 48mph.
Ride and comfort are fabulous.
like driving a luxury sedan.
give it a 9.5 out of 10 rating. Best on the market.
Best FeaturesQuiet and smooth in electric mode. Camera on passenger side for seeing blind spot. Heated seats for all passengers front and rear. Tracks mileage as you drive for better understanding of driving style. quick acceleration. lane change alert when blinker is not used. Auto braking and alarm when car in front suddenly slows down. instantly lights up dash area to alert driver to situation.
Worst Featuresnote: does not come with satellite radio. the electric cord does not swivel therefore in some charge stations hard to keep plugged in. the other electric cords which are all designed similar rotate the plug so that it can be in either position ie the ground up or down dependent upon the charge station. trunk area would be issue for a family if traveling as batteries are between back seat and trunk. needs to have some sound effects as it is so quiet even bicyclist don't hear you coming. rear backup has camera but doesn't again have any noise to alert someone in way. would make is a 10 our of 10 if some changes were made.
