Test drive Honda Accord hybrid version

    [car03 test drive]  Hybrid price span is now growing, entry-level hybrid cars more than ten million can buy, and certainly high-end hybrid ordinary people can not afford. Because the price span, high-end hybrid models willing to explain the concept of energy conservation from the starting point, while the entry of course, is fuel-efficient hybrid to save money. Either way, always synonymous with hybrid savings, seems to have been not suffer with the sports side. However, this time I test drive hybrid cars, fuel efficiency is the primary purpose, it has failed to meet it, and hybrid models are also prepared to take the property line, the car is equipped with a 2.0L engine, hybrid version of the Accord. The car is not simple, because it is said in the study of Toyota after its hybrid technology, also expressed approval of attitude. Take a look at the car, we start driving hybrid and start.

● i-MMD混动系统

  The power system on Honda, before two articles "Honda hybrid / turbine technology analysis" and "hybrid Accord depth technical interpretation" has been described in great detail, are not repeated here described only briefly summarize the new Honda hybrid dynamic core technology.

  Honda i-MMD hybrid dynamic systems by a 2.0L Atkinson cycle engine, the power control unit (PCU), high power motors and high-capacity lithium-ion battery, of which the motor is partially loaded dual-motor, neither the traditional gearbox transmission does not require the planetary gear than Toyota's THS-II hybrid system simpler structure. The hybrid system is the most important feature is that it can provide not only like other hybrid dynamic systems as good fuel economy and power requirements are not lowered, so called sports hybrid system.

  And on this Honda hybrid system works, and especially simple. Toyota's first talk about how to do: THS-II hybrid system through the planetary gear set, each time adjusting the mixing ratio of the power source; and Honda's i-MMD system is constantly switching power source can be provided the motor drive power, also It can be the engine through double reduction gear, a driving force. The advantage is that a simpler structure, higher power output efficiency.


● Driving experience

  Traveling at low speed most of the time are pure motor operation (EV mode), giving the impression that this hybrid dynamic systems tend to use more power-driven mode, vehicle speed is not high power outputs to power the motor to complete you can hear the sound of the engine running when driving, but does not enter the drive state, one can achieve a more fuel-efficient, on the other hand people feel better throttle response.

  At high speeds in the Accord hybrid power output experienced steady, sometimes gives you a large displacement naturally aspirated engine driving the illusion, not because of noise, but this linear acceleration feel far better than the turbocharged engine to smooth, feel better speed, so power section, I should give this car a high score. When the vehicle speed is only heard voices more general, an engine relatively thin, high-pitched sound operation, experience in general.

Honda Accord 2016 hybrid version

  At low speeds the engine is not involved in this case is a pure electrical work, you can feel the car is really very good noise control, vehicle sound good, plus there is no low-frequency vibration of the engine and the sound of the motor, the car felt very quiet . But at the start it was quite obvious vibration, in particular has not been started, suddenly started, feeling more obvious.

Honda Accord 2016 hybrid version

  The noise control at high speed is not very good, at 100km / h wind noise can be heard more obvious, you can also hear a slight tire noise, but because the tire is used in 235/45 R18 tires, the tire noise control indeed it will be relatively weak, if it is over 17-inch wheels, it should be better. In addition, I feel that the experience of sitting in the back of noise, significantly more than the front, wind noise is greater, the driver's seat of the noise is relatively better.

  The engine drives the wheels directly is relatively rare, generally in relatively stable in high speed, the clutch will be engaged, the engine drives the wheels directly short, my experience is the speed of about 80km / h. As long as there is a certain depth of the throttle changes, such as closing the throttle deceleration, when the engine will disconnect the access, the use of motors or into the charging state. But this process is always very stable vehicle, basically will not let you feel the change in the source of the driving force, if not deliberately pay attention, with petrol-powered vehicles are the same.

  You may notice that the Accord hybrid behind the steering wheel shift paddles provided, the left and right plus minus, with the traditional look shift paddles is no different. But in fact this function difference with the traditional paddles or big, this is actually a deceleration function key, the main role is to control the driver's own kinetic energy recovery, recovery of braking force and effect is controllable.

  Press the left paddle turn deceleration, deceleration may be added after the intensity of 1-4 segments, segment 1 is the lightest and the heaviest section 4, paragraph 4 deceleration in turn, if oil revenues can clearly feel the brake , then most likely the electric vehicle driving experience, the strongest state storage, I tried it in a relatively congested traffic, basically completed within 1 km from the power grid 2 (low battery) charge to 6 grid power (higher power).


    Further, there is no such analog shift function, manufacturers explained that the Honda hybrid models in pursuit of smooth acceleration, not intermittently switching it from the power output has reached the standard they want, and so do not need this analog shift mode.

  On fuel consumption, there is no opportunity to test drive the test in accordance with our standard test fuel consumption, but because the mileage test drive nearly 100 kilometers, so the table was the fuel consumption should also have some reference value. The final table was the fuel consumption is 4.9L / 100km (5.0L / 100km is taken halfway), since there is no specific test fuel consumption, so most of the time while driving the throttle deeper, but also with some Sport mode. If it is normal driving, it should not be higher than the fuel consumption. My colleague Zhang long measured Camry hybrid fuel consumption is 5.9L / 100km, from the present situation to the Accord hybrid fuel consumption is lower than the Camry hybrid.

Pure electric mode (EV mode) while driving the car fairly quiet, basically you can not hear the noise, and in the speed throttle response is very fast. Manufacturers data shows battery rated capacity is 1.3kWh, battery charge and discharge are particularly fast (2 to 6 cell battery from the grid), pure electric mode with a distance of about 2km.

● 0-100km / h acceleration test

Say so performance, it is also very open movement, how it's real strength? I guess you are like I am also very interested in the car's acceleration performance, during the brief test drive so I also found time to test the car's 0-100km / h acceleration, the line or not, let the data speak for themselves.

Honda Accord 2016 hybrid version

  The start is basically not much change in body posture, because the power and start the moment there is no release, even if the state of full throttle, at 0.5 seconds after the start basically feel the speed, with the call and when this daily driving dynamic response to completely different. The middle of a very strong acceleration, g value from the graph you can see the middle of the acceleration g values are always maintained at about 0.5g.

  Last 0-100 km / h acceleration performance is 8.09 seconds, according to the time before the test drive on the Accord hybrid power should be close to the impression of a 2.0T model, so the results should be expected acceleration in less than 8 seconds, the final score did not too many surprises. However, if you do not consider these, simply for a 2.0L hybrid midsize car, the 8.09 seconds acceleration performance be very good.

● with the Camry hybrid version of driving experience contrast

    After I test drive the car, they found me open Camry hybrid colleagues, again feeling a bit Camry hybrid, so here is simply the next experience. Because the starting point hybrid system is not the same, so the two vehicles driving experience or have some differences, Camry open up more like a gasoline engine-powered vehicles, you can feel more engine power for everyday driving, but in Canada during deceleration and braking, the foot motor vibration and sound, like an electric feel not very good, dynamic performance is normal.

    The Accord hybrid driving experience is more like an electric car, because in fact a large part of the time it is powered by the motor vehicle, the dynamic response, a sense of speed than the Camry hybrid is better, there will not be the motor at low speeds vibration and current sound, very quiet, but at high speed with the more general sense of quality.

Appearance, if more familiar with the Accord model, essentially a hybrid version can be seen with the petrol version is different, because the hybrid version has some unique personalized design, mainly in the grille, headlights on the details of the deal , added some blue trim to highlight the hybrid identity.

  Relatively small rear spoiler and unique shape, not very exaggerated, looks great design sense, this is not the Accord gasoline version. Exhaust pipes petrol version with different styling, using hidden exhaust, while the Accord petrol version is a total of two bilateral chrome exhaust.

 Honda Accord hybrid offers 17-inch and 18-inch wheels, my test drive is 18 inches, especially for family cars hybrid models, 18 inches is relatively large, the Camry hybrid use of 16-inch and 17 inches. Tires, Accord hybrid is equipped with Ruckus Hallmark tire specifications for 235/45 R18.

  Overall Accord interior with petrol or less, center console and steering wheel are substantially the same. But Dangba position difference is more obvious, the Accord hybrid uses a Honda Dangba latest style, with the crown of the road is the same, push-button electronic gear, which is Honda's latest family design.

  Honestly I personally feel that the Accord's interior and there is not much sense of luxury, get in the car feel a sense of quality in general, but the configuration is still quite high, but also very practical. There are three main front passenger front seat heating and seat ventilation, the rear seats have two left and right seat heating.

  The trunk floor is quite smooth, as well as the separator below the spare tire, trunk volume has not been much affected battery pack, the official parameter display trunk volume has 399L, slightly smaller than the average in the car, for the mixed dynamic model is considered moderate level, with the Camry hybrid fairly.

● Summary

    Accord hybrid fuel consumption in hybrid models can be considered a relatively low, the more valuable it is still some fun to drive. Since a large part of the time the vehicle is powered by the motor vehicle, the engine is only responsible to the battery, so the dynamic response, a sense of speed is better than the petrol engine models, there will not be at a low speed motor vibration and current sound, very quiet. When only high-speed ride quality more general sense, the back can hear the noise clearly.

  Finally, we all know that Toyota and Lexus hybrid models have after-sales maintenance and warranty policies, such as the Camry hybrid models enjoy six free maintenance (10,000 km 1 maintenance), in this regard Accord hybrid kinetic What preferential policies it? After this problem thrown factory engineers, their answer is, when the official launch will be released this car, there will be some preferential policies. As to whether satisfactory, is not known now, the car September 28 official launch, we'll see.
