Accord Hybrid

After work I am picking up a 2018 Accord Hybrid, champagne/ivory. Hopefully there'll be an uptick in hybrid activity here.

Yeah, I change too often. I think I'll like this one better. It's a better ride and quieter and much better colors. We'll see.

Congratulations on the new car. I read in Car And Driver that the Accord Hybrid has the best CVT of any car. What made you get an Accord Hybrid instead of a Clarity Plug-in Hybrid?

Higher mpg and better price.

I made my first fill today. I could have waited several more days but had a personal reason to do it. I drove mostly local trips usually less than 4 miles per segment. I did do one longer trip about 47 miles each way about 41 freeway miles. As it now shows I got 46mpg overall. I expected more like 44 so that was nice. I now think an all freeway long distance trip would definitely beat the EPA 47mpg rating. I'm very satisfied with my choice of this car and the results it's producing.

Good numbers for such a big car.

Pretty good, very similar to a diesel, but probably quieter.

It actually isn't a CVT at all. The car runs as a series hybrid most of the time with just a one speed transmission like a BEV. The engine can clutch in at highway speeds for better cruising efficiency.

It should only get better as the tires wear.

Not a great shot but can't get my other camera to cooperate.
