The all-new Honda Accord Sport Hybrid has touched down in Australia; the first of a new generation of hybrid powertrains from the global Earth Dreams Technology series.

“The Accord Sport Hybrid is the first vehicle in Australia that features our all-new hybrid powertrain,” said Honda Australia Director, Mr. Stephen Collins. “Honda’s advanced technology delivers exceptional performance with outstanding fuel economy, ensuring our customers can have the best of both worlds.

“The Accord Sport Hybrid further demonstrates Honda’s commitment to petrol-electric hybrid powertrains as a critical technology for reducing fuel consumption and CO2 emissions,” Mr. Collins said.

The Accord Sport Hybrid’s powertrain is called Intelligent Multi-Mode Drive or i-MMD and is able to seamlessly switch between three drive modes: electric, hybrid and petrol engine only.

It combines a newly-developed engine dedicated to hybrid vehicles, an electric CVT coupled with two built-in motors, lock-up clutch and high-efficiency lithium-ion battery.
