New Honda Hybrid Models near Inglewood and Hawthorne

For some Los Angeles-area drivers, efficiency has always been a top priority when shopping for their next vehicle. But with fluctuating gas prices and increased environmental concerns combined with the steadily increasing popularity of electrified automobility, more shoppers than ever are looking for ways to spend less at the pump and reduce the emissions of their daily commute. For drivers who aren't quite ready to commit to 100% battery power, a hybrid offers a practical middle ground, as it can help decrease operating costs without sacrificing range and doesn't need to be plugged in to get around.

Honda offers appealing, versatile, and well-equipped electrified models to suit a variety of needs and lifestyles. Below, you'll find a quick overview of each model, plus a few of the benefits of switching to a hybrid vehicle.

Honda Insight

The Honda Insight builds on the iconic Civic's well-established compact car formula with even better fuel economy. It's roomy, refined, and nicely equipped. It's also sophisticated and stylish--if you weren't looking for the subtle "Hybrid" badge, you might not realize it's not a typical combustion-only sedan.

Under the hood, a 1.5-liter four-cylinder performs as a generator, supplying power to an electric motor driving the front wheels. This arrangement allows Insight to operate on battery power alone for short distances, but step on the gas, and the engine kicks in seamlessly, giving you the powertrain's full 151 horsepower combined output. EPA estimates for the Honda Insight reach an impressive 55 mpg city, 49 mpg highway, and 52 mpg combined.1

Honda Accord Hybrid

With its engaging driving dynamics, refined ride quality, and classy, comfortable accommodations, the Honda Accord epitomizes excellence in the midsize sedan segment. A perennial Car and Driver 10Best recipient, the Accord has earned more appearances on the coveted list than any other model-and it's not even close. The Accord Hybrid delivers the same award-winning experience, with decreased emissions and increasing driving range.

The Accord Hybrid pairs a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine with a strong electric motor to produce a combined 212 horsepower while achieving EPA-estimated ratings of 48 mpg city, 47 mpg highway, and 47 mpg combined.1

Honda CR-V Hybrid

A quintessential compact crossover, the Honda CR-V delivers generous accommodations, expansive cargo capacity, and smooth, well-behaved ride quality. Its comfort and practicality make it an excellent choice for families, commuters, and road-trip enthusiasts alike. The CR-V Hybrid is a particularly appealing choice for longer excursions, allowing drivers to travel farther on one tank of gas.

The CR-V Hybrid employs the same refined and responsive powertrain as the Accord Hybrid but with the added sure-footed handling and control of standard all-wheel drive. The EPA estimates the CR-V's fuel economy ratings at 40 mpg city, 35 mpg highway, and 38 mpg combined.1

Honda Clarity Plug-in Hybrid

An upscale cabin, pleasing ride quality, and a generous list of standard features make the Honda Clarity an appealing sedan in its own right. The EPA-estimated 110 miles-per-gallon equivalent1 of its plug-in hybrid powertrain is an added bonus. The Clarity Plug-in Hybrid leverages the same powertrain as the CR-V and Accord hybrids but with a larger 17-kWh battery. And with an EPA-estimated electric-only range of 48 miles, it's a great way to experience the EV lifestyle without committing only battery power. The Clarity Plug-in Hybrid is also easy to charge, replenishing its battery completely in ~12 hours with a standard 120-volt household-style outlet. Or you can connect to Level 2 equipment, reducing charge time to ~2.5 hours.

Benefits of Driving a Hybrid Vehicle

According to the California Energy Commission, the transportation sector accounts for half of the state's greenhouse gas emissions, almost 80 percent of total nitrogen oxide pollution, and 90 percent of diesel particulate pollution. Reducing the amount of fuel consumed by combustion engines can go a long way toward improving air quality and limiting environmental impact. However, you don't have to go full electric to make a difference.

Standard hybrid vehicles can offer 35+% better fuel efficiency than their gas-only counterparts, greatly increasing the time between fill-ups. This also translates to reduced ownerships cost. Fewer trips to the pump equal less money spent on fuel. Additionally, since they harvest their energy from the engine or the energy typically lost during braking, hybrids don't require an outside energy source to function, eliminating range anxiety.
