Honda CR-V Hybrid Philosophy
The Honda CR-V represents both the future of Honda and the future of driving. Honda leaders have already promised to extend hybrid engineering to all their core models over the coming years, and the CR-V is just the latest nameplate to get that treatment.
To support its production at Honda’s plant in Anna, Ohio, $4.2 million has been invested and 34 new jobs have been created. It’s going to join the Honda Insight and Honda Accord Hybrid to become the third electrified Honda manufactured in the U.S.
Honda CR-V Hybrid Powertrain
The Honda CR-V Hybrid is expected to command up to 212 hp combined and achieve a 50% increase in EPA city fuel economy ratings from the standard CR-V. That kind of advance comes from the hybrid powertrain currently found in the Honda Accord. It combines:
- 2.0L 16-Valve DOHC Atkinson Cycle Engine
- Electric Motors
- Hybrid Battery Pack
A sophisticated Intelligent Power Unit (IPU) distributes power between all four wheels to ensure flawless performance at all times.
Honda CR-V Hybrid Design
The 2020 Honda CR-V will get revised exterior styling to bring it right up to the cutting-edge. The CR-V Hybrid is set to share in those updates while bringing a few exclusive exterior accents to set itself apart.
CR-V Hybrid design features include:
- Hybrid Badging
- Blue Honda Logo on the Grill
- Hidden Tailpipe
- Unique Rear Bumper (Touring Trims)
