Honda Hybrids: 2021

The hybrid vehicle has come a long way since the early days of slow moving, back-end heavy, anti-climactic models. Luckily, technology today has given us efficient, powerful and attractive hybrid models, with plenty of options from which to choose! Today, Honda has four modern hybrids that are either more efficient versions of their gas-powered siblings or are designed specifically as a hybrid vehicle. The 2021 Honda Accord and 2021 Honda CR-V are nearly indistinguishable from the combustion engine versions. While the hybrid-only 2021 Honda Clarity and Honda Insight are undercover hybrids with impressive fuel economy and plenty of style to spare.

2021 Honda Accord

The new Honda Accord Hybrid is just like the 2021 Honda Accord but gets about 10 more miles per gallon, 48 mpg in the Accord Hybrid compared to up to 30 mpg city* in the standard Accord. You’ll still enjoy the spacious cabin, upscale feel, fun-to-drive performance and reliable safety standards for which the Honda Accord is known. While you may pay a little more upfront, you’ll make it back in gas costs and fewer stops at the pump. 

In the new 2021 Accord Hybrid, use EV mode to maximize fuel efficiency and operate solely on the hybrid battery for short distances. Perfect for pulling into the driveway silently or getting around a parking garage without using gas.

Our favorite features in the new 2021 Honda Accord Hybrid include:

  • Battery under the rear seats so you get 16.7 cubic feet of trunk space
  • 19-inch alloy wheels
  • Heated & ventilated seating
  • Power moonroof
  • Active Noise Cancellation™
  • 10-speaker premium audio system
2021 Honda CR-V Hybrid

The new Honda CR-V Hybrid is your versatile SUV crossover hybrid option from Honda. Just like its gas-powered version, the Honda CR-V hybrid offers plenty of cargo space and a comfortable ride but comes with standard all-wheel-drive and an impressive 40 mpg**. Utilize ECON drive mode to maximize fuel efficiency or EV mode to drive using only the electric battery for short distances. Regenerative braking helps you recharge the battery as you drive.

Some of our favorite features in the 2021 Honda CR-V Hybrid include:

  • Standard power moonroof
  • Standard heated front seats
  • Standard Blind-Spot Information System
  • Available leather seats
  • Hands-free power tailgate
  • Wireless charging
2022 Honda Insight

The new Honda Insight is a standard hybrid, meaning it is not available in a gas-powered model. The upscale Honda Insight gives no outward appearance of being a hybrid and boasts a whopping 55 mpg†! This spacious Honda sedan is affordable, user-friendly, and comfortable. The new Insight uses regenerative braking that is less noticeable than other hybrid models. 

With just two trims to choose from, EX or Touring, your choice is made simple. Get a standard 8-speaker audio system, 8-inch touchscreen, Active Noise Cancellation™ and Honda Sensing® safety features in the Honda Insight EX or upgrade to the Honda Insight Touring to add:

  • Leather trim
  • Heated front seats
  • Power moonroof
  • Wi-Fi hotspot
  • 10-speaker premium audio system
  • Dual-zone automatic climate control
2021 Honda Clarity Plug-In Hybrid

The new Honda Clarity is a plug-in hybrid, or PHEV, and can run on gas, hybrid gas/electric, or electric-only power for longer distances. The new 2021 Honda Clarity PHEV gets an impressive 47 miles*** of all-electric driving range on one charge and then seamlessly switches to hybrid gas power to get a total rating of 110 MPGe***! If you forget to charge your Honda Clarity, no worries, it will run on gas and hybrid power normally. 

This stylish Honda sedan gives you the best of both worlds. Run in EV mode to produce zero emissions and save more on gas, simply recharge at home or work and enjoy zero-emission commuting. When you need it, you can rely on gas power and standard fuel-up stations, making it great for longer trips or places with fewer EV-charging options.

Our favorite features in the 2021 Honda Clarity Plug-In Hybrid include:

  • Standard heated front seats
  • Remote cabin climate control
  • Available Honda Satellite-Linked Navigation System™
  • Power-adjustable front seats
  • Leather-trimmed seating

Every new 2021 Honda Hybrid features standard Apple CarPlay®, Android Auto™, 60/40 split fold-down rear seatbacks and Honda Sensing® safety features that includes:

  • Multi-Angle Rearview Camera
  • Road Departure Mitigation System
  • Collision Mitigation Braking System™
  • Adaptive Cruise Control w/ Low-Speed Follow

Specific models and trims also have a Blind Spot Information System with Cross Traffic Monitor, Parking Sensors, Low-Speed Braking Control, Head-Up Display and more!

The 2021 Honda Accord Hybrid is just like the best-selling Honda Accord but with better gas mileage, as is the off-road-ready 2021 Honda CR-V Hybrid.
