Honda CR-V Hybrid Powertrain
Honda 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.
2020 Honda CR-V Hybrid Styling
As stated by Car and Driver: “Both hybrids and nonhybrids benefit from a different center console that’s said to be more spacious”. The interior of each also offers a wide selection of tech features, and the hybrid sets itself apart from the outside by adding:
- Hybrid Badging
- Distinctive Blue Honda Logo on the Grill
- Unique Rear Bumper (with Touring Trims)
- Hidden Tailpipe
New colors available with both the Honda CR-V and Honda CR-V Hybrid will include:
- Sonic Gray Pearl
- Radiant Red Metallic
