Honda has removed a few products from its range with the introduction of the BS6 emission requirements including its signature product, the Accord Hybrid. Honda’s flagship sedan was offered in one full-imported version.
The sedan was fitted with a 2.0-liter BS4 petrol engine with two electric motors paired to an e-CVT gearbox. The hybrid powertrain had a peak power level of 215PS. Honda also sold the sedan with a 1.3kWh lithium-ion battery pack that controlled the electric motors. The Accord Hybrid’s fuel performance rated with ARAI was 23.1kmpl.
In terms of specifications, the sedan came with LED headlamps and LED DRLs, a sunroof, an 8-way driver seat and a 4-way passenger seat that could be changed. Honda also sold the partnership for Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, rain-sensing wipers, and dual-zone climate control with a 7-inch touchscreen infotainment interface.
Meanwhile, Honda has for now also retired the CR-V and Civic diesel models. Both of these models are scheduled to be released later this year with BS6 diesel engines, while the fifth-gen Honda City will arrive once the coronavirus pandemic has been controlled. Over the coming weeks the Japanese carmaker is also scheduled to launch the Jazz and WR-V BS6 models.
