After discontinuing the Civic-based Perception following the 2023 mannequin 12 months, Honda has been left with simply two hybrid fashions on sale, the Accord and the CR-V. Regardless of the shortage of mannequin selection, it seems these two remaining hybrids are an enormous boon for Honda, as they each made up 25 p.c of the model’s whole U.S. gross sales in 2023.

Honda bought 1,162,531 autos within the U.S. in 2023, a 32.4 p.c enhance over 2022. 197,947 items of the Accord lineup had been moved whereas the CR-V was far and away Honda’s best-seller with 361,457 of the crossovers delivered. Of these 559,404 Accords and CR-Vs that had been bought, 293,640 of them had been the hybrid variations, with these electrified fashions making up greater than 50 p.c of gross sales for the 2 vehicles and simply over 25 p.c of Honda’s general gross sales.

Now this isn’t an enormous shock; Honda has structured the Accord and CR-V so the hybrid variations are the one choices for almost all of trim ranges. On the CR-V the entry-level LX and mid-range EX and EX-L are provided with a standard turbocharged four-cylinder whereas the Sport, Sport-L and Sport Touring are solely accessible because the hybrid, whereas for the Accord the bottom LX and EX are the only real nonhybrid choices, with the remainder of the lineup coming with the hybrid powertrain.

The CR-V hybrid is an effective deal extra environment friendly than the usual mannequin, providing as much as 40 mpg mixed versus 30 mpg for the turbo engine. It’s comparable if you have a look at the Accord, the place the hybrid will get as much as 48 mpg mixed whereas the bottom engine solely achieves 32 mpg. This can be a nice method to scale back emissions throughout the mannequin lineups and the model as a complete — simply have a look at the brand new Toyota Camry, which might save American drivers 48 million gallons of fuel per 12 months by going hybrid-only.

2024 may even see the addition of a brand new hybrid model of the Civic to the lineup. We don’t but know pricing, gas economic system figures or trim construction for the Civic hybrid, however count on an analogous setup to the Accord and CR-V. Honda bought 200,381 Civics in 2023, a rise of fifty p.c over 2022, and I wouldn’t be shock to see gross sales and take charges for the brand new hybrid match or exceed these of the Accord and CR-V.
