Default Honda will build 2014 Accord Hybrid in Ohio

Filed under: Hybrid, Sedan, Plants/Manufacturing, Honda



Honda has announced that it will invest $23 million in its Marysville, Ohio facility to support production of the upcoming 2014 Accord Hybrid sedan. According to the manufacturer, this means approximately 50 new jobs will be created, and the whole investment will result in a 95,000-square-foot expansion of the Marysville plant.

The Accord Hybrid joins the decidedly homely Accord PHEV (pictured) this fall, using a 2.0-liter i-VTEC Atkinson cycle four-cylinder engine mated to a 124-kilowatt electric motor. Honda has yet to release official power or fuel economy figures for the non-plug-in hybrid version of the Accord.

Honda currently operates four manufacturing facilities in Ohio, with the combined capacity to build up to 700,000 cars and light trucks each year. The Japanese automaker also has a facility in Greensburg, Indiana, where the Civic Hybrid and Acura ILX Hybrid are built.

I'm looking forward to this car coming out this Fall. And I'm glad to see Honda stepping into the 'full hybrid' game with plugin and this car.

My handle is wrong. Currently have 2011 Prius which I traded Accord Coupe in for. Before that, sold older Prius to get Coupe.
