Honda CR-V Hybrid Powertrain

2020 Honda CR-V Powertrain HeroHonda drivers should be excited to learn that the upcoming Honda CR-V Hybrid will use the same Two-Motor hybrid electric system currently found in the popular Honda Accord Hybrid. Combining a 2.0L 16-valve DOHC Atkinson Cycle engine, hybrid battery, and two electric motors, it should command up to a healthy 212 hp combined.

An Intelligent Power Unit (IPU) will distribute power between all four wheels, and Honda has already boasted a 50% increase in EPA city fuel economy rating compared with the standard Honda CR-V. Since this will be the first application of All-Wheel Drive to the Two-Motor system within America, you should expect the same level of capability regardless of whether you’re driving a hybrid or a standard model.
