According to a recent report, Honda will introduce an Accord Plug-in Hybrid sometime next year.

Details are limited, but the car will likely adopt the plug-in hybrid technology that was showcased at the Los Angeles Auto Show. This means we can expect the Accord to feature a 2.0-liter four-cylinder petrol engine, a 6 kWh lithium-ion battery, and an electric motor that develops 161 hp (120 kW / 163 PS).

Thanks to this setup, the Accord would be able to travel 10 to 15 miles (16 to 24 km) on electricity alone at speeds up to 62 mph (100 km/h). Furthermore, the battery could be recharged in 2 to 2.5 hours with a conventional 120 volt household outlet or 1 to 1.5 hours with a 240 volt rapid charger.
