This is a short informational video about the honda accord hybrid.
I recorded this video with my cell phone to help those who have the car and those who are thinking about purchasing the car, understand some of it's great features.

      I just bought one of these (used), so far I love it. I see your video is from 2015, I would be interested in hearing your thoughts/review since then.

      How does the hybrid system work please... I mean questions like does the fun on the radiator ever stop ? And for how long ? Do you feel the change of battery to gas when it’s changing?

      I've had a 2014 Accord Hybrid since new. Love the car and how it goes about its business so thriftily. I was intrigued by the notion of driving around in "B" mode all the time and what I might see in a typical drive I know well. This particular drive takes me about 24 miles round trip, from an elevation of just under 500' down to sea level and up to perhaps 300-400' at the end of the drive. Then I do it in reverse. It's a good indicator I think because of the hilliness of the drive. Without any heat or AC needed in the cabin, which runs the engine longer and/or requires more battery juice I made the same trip this morning but in "B" mode. Wow! I previously typically saw mpg averages of ~44 mpg but this time just over 50mpg! Quite a jump! Under steady-state cruising I don't think there would be as much gain but my drive has plenty of off the gas times but also with plenty of up hill driving. I had used "B" Mode in the past only to control speed downhill, off throttle and maximize charge in the HV battery so that maximum battery was available to drive on at the bottom of hills. This is enough of a gain to make it worth continuing on in "B" mode. Two caveats to keep in mind, the car slows faster when you let off the throttle so where the car would coast more freely in "D" mode, a little change to one's approach to lights and stops. Secondly, while slowing faster off-throttle I don't think the car's brake lights are on. Be mindful of inattentive drivers behind who might not be watching what's going on carefully. Thanks for the video.

      How is the car now after using B mode does it wear the transmission or brakes down?

      There isn't a "transmission" in the car other than a set of gears which are not selectable. Power to the drive wheels is usually all from the electric motor. At about 45mph the gas engine can be utilized by the system depending on demands and conditions. Over 45mph it's a mixture of gas and battery. Slowing by virtue of extra charge (resistance) to the battery pack from the generator does not use the mechanical brakes at all.

      Can you switch into B while you’re driving?

      There is a version. Honda Accord Hybrid Touring. That has installed navigation on the screen inside the car.

      Probably expensive, check with a dealer to see if the swap is available and then check your options. Otherwise, use your smartphone.

      Quick questions:

      1) In Winter like 0'C to -30'C OR normal
      temperature under 0'C, Do we need to warm up the car in the morning like
      regular non-hybrid cars or not? I believe in Hybrid cars usually
      Battery start the car initially and then later on when you start driving
      and cross speed of 20 to 30km/h then the Gas engine start working...so
      question is how the Gas engine warm up in this scenario ??

      2) Is it possible if we can continuously or most of the time driving in B mode?

      3)
      is B mode only suitable for city driving with stop/go traffic OR also
      suitable for Highway driving of around 100 to 120 km/h or 60 to 75 mp/h
      ??

      Please advise. Thanks. HK

      I'd think any steady-state driving (highway) would yield less advantage in "B" mode. I'll sure give it a try to see though. One thing with driving in chilly areas, if you want cabin heat the engine will start and run immediately upon starting the system. The engine warms quickly but will use more gas than if heat isn't needed. Using A/C has less of an effect on mileage. Like any car though, start out and drive with moderate throttle, the engine warms quickly and holds that heat to make it more efficient.

      Boojhowon Beenay Kumar as with anything, the performance has slightly decreased over time, due to wear and tear.
      I'm sure after a tune up etc. it'll be good as new.

      @Captain Carter- No problems thus far, I've had the car since last March.
      On a full tank it's well over 600 miles depending on your choice of fuel.

      Why is Honda afraid to make a Hybrid coupe!

      Get a CR-Z. Dealers are giving them away. Otherwise market research says there isn't enough of a market to do a midsize hybrid coupe for Honda to be profitable. Then again, theres the the LaFerrari, Porsche 918, and McLaren P1 if money is no issue.

      @Peter Jensen- I recommend driving in B with your econ "On" for the best gas mileage.

      Kagunmmm, Driving in B with ECON ON, what about EV mode, do I need to enable it or it is by default ON ??

      Just bought my 2015 accord hybrid EXL. Love it! But I have been getting less than 40 mpg, should i always drive in B mode to get the best gas mileage?
