GOLDEN, Colo., May 21, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Honda is selling more hybrid Accords this year. In fact, it's selling them so fast that not only are they one of the best selling hybrid in the US, but they've actually had difficulties getting enough of them into US showrooms.
Despite this, prospective buyers can simply come down to their local honda dealer, Planet Honda near Denver, Colo. to check out this popular green car.
In the first quarter of the year, Honda sold over 4,000 units of its Hybrid Accord. And for good reason. With gas prices likely to hike again as the summer gets hotter, the Hybrid is a great way to save money at the pump as it gets a projected 50 mpg city and 45 mpg hwy.*
It looks like the wave of hybrids are coming in a greater and more varied numbers as nearly every car company is getting in on the action. Plug-ins, hybrids, and even diesels are being released from Tesla, Nissan, Chevy, Volkswagen, and Audi.
With gas prices already above where they were this time last year, its easy to see why consumers are looking to vehicles that will save them money when they fuel up. And as the technology improves to match the average fuel efficiency standard of 35.5 mpg for all cars and light trucks by 2016 set by the federal government, things are only going to get better. Add onto to that the looming requirement in 2025 that those same vehicles have to achieve 54.5 mpg, and companies are going to be putting as much effort into making greener more efficient cars as they possibly can.
WIth the 2014 Honda Accord Hybrid surpassing the 2016 requirement and nearly achieving the 2025 standard a decade early, don't look at Honda to sit back and get lazy. It has also designed several models of the 2014 Honda Civic, such as the Hybrid, a natural gas model, and a regular high-efficiency gas model known as the HF. As consumers look for better fuel economy in every car they buy, the race to 100 mpg is in full swing.
