Fremont, CA (PRWEB) April 22, 2013
AutoWest Honda of Fremont is proud to offer the new Accord Plug-in; providing efficiency that's electrifying. The Accord Plug-In has an aerodynamic design that maximizes efficiency and style.
The easy-to-use charging port on the Accord Plug-In is located in front of the driver-side front door, and the fuel door is behind the driver-side rear door. The Smart Entry feature detects when the key fob is near the front doors, allowing entry with greater convenience and ease. Simply push the small button on the door handle to lock. The Accord Plug-In can identify when the key fob is inside the vehicle.
The Accord Plug-In features a multi-angle rearview camera that can help show what's behind the vehicle from three unique angles. A tiny camera on the passenger-side mirror is automatically activated when signaling right and it can be manually activated at any time. With live video displays on the i-MID screen, it covers nearly four times more area than looking at the passenger-side mirror alone.
The Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) system lets the driver set their desired speed and following distance, for optimal cruise control in light highway traffic. ACC monitors and maintains desired following distance, and then automatically regulates or varies speed to preserve that distance.
The intelligent Multi-Information display communicates with virtually all of the vehicle's systems. The 8" screen can display text messages when stopped and music information from Pandora® or the USB Audio Interface while underway. It also shows performance stats, like fuel consumption and trip range.
The Intuitive Gauge Cluster on the Accord Plug-In displays real time battery usage and regeneration levels, overall battery charge, remaining fuel levels and more. Push the ECON button, and the Accord Plug-In automatically adjusts fuel-consuming systems to maximize efficiency. For better performance, push the button again to put the power back into drive. Honda's Eco Assist™ is a simple tool to help develop efficient driving habits.
The Accord Plug-In features a USB Audio Interface, so passengers can bring along a compatible portable music player or a USB drive loaded with music.
The Honda Satellite-Linked Navigation System™ with voice recognition is capable of recognizing numbers, street names and cities, in addition to more than 1,500 standard voice commands. And the FM Traffic feature helps avoid gridlock, slowdowns and road closures.
The Accord Plug-In has a [targeted] 10-mile all-electric range rating. Just recharge the vehicle each night, and drivers might be able to enjoy fuel-free weekdays. Uncle Sam is encouraging everyone to drive eco-responsibly. That's why owners of a new Accord Plug-In are eligible for up to $2,500 in federal tax credits. And Californians who own the Accord Plug-In can apply for state tax rebates of up to $2,500 as well, through the CA Clean Vehicle Rebate Project. And with a comprehensive portfolio of environmental technologies, including hydrogen, battery electric, solar and natural gas, Honda is forging a path toward a sustainable future.
