The 2014 Honda Accord Hybrid, with an impressive (for a conventional hybrid car) fuel economy of 47 miles per gallon (US), is just about ready to roll into your local Honda dealership. The car will be available starting October 31, Honda reports. The company has also now released the 2014 Honda Accord Hybrid price — $29,945.
Aside from the base model, EX-L model is priced at $32,695, and the Touring model can be bought for $35,695.
Stephen Edelstein of Green Car Reports notes that the 2014 Accord Hybrid is priced a bit higher than its hybrid competitors:
The 2014 Ford Fusion Hybrid starts at $26,995 with destination; a 2013 Hyundai Sonata Hybrid starts at $26,445; and its 2013 Kia Optima Hybrid sibling begins at a sticker price of $26,700.
The well-established 2013 Toyota Camry Hybrid starts at a cost of $26,950. Buyers willing to move from a midsize sedan to a hatchback might also consider the more fuel-efficient 2013 Toyota Prius Liftback, which starts at $25,010.
Of course, the 47 mpg fuel economy rating (49 mpg in the city, 45 mpg on the highway) is a best in class, so that counts for something. (Notably, in case you got confused, this is not the Honda Accord Plug-in Hybrid, which has a combined fuel economy of 100 mpg.)
