Top 10 High-Tech Green Cars
2014 Honda Accord Plug-In Hybrid ($39,780)
Looking for a fuel-efficient vehicle? How does one that gets 115 MPGe sound? That’s what Honda estimates its 2013 Accord Plug-In Hybrid is capable of, thanks to its 2-liter, 4-cylinder engine and 6.7-kWh lithium-ion battery pack. Charge times for the system range from less than three hours on a standard 120-volt household electric outlet to as low as less than an hour with a 240-volt adapter. As with many plug-ins and electrics, users can remotely monitor the Accord Plug-In Hybrid’s via the HondaLink EV smartphone app. Inside, the Accord Hybrid packs the same high-tech telematics system as the standard Accord. Features include Honda’s HandsFreeLink smartphone connectivity and Honda- Link app streaming system. Then there’s Honda’s Eco Assist, which helps coach you to drive more efficiently.
