Like adding the 1.5 to the two motor system?

Thinking of the CR-V - the Accords system is maybe too much the Fit system not enough.

IMO, what is suitable for Accord should be suitable to CRV as well, since they both fall in similar weight category.

I would be curious to know if Pilot or Odyssey will be offered with the hybrid options.

With the instant pull of the e-motors I wonder if weight will stay the main issue.
But I think Honda could make the accord hybrid a more premium, long distance option than a 2wd CRV hybrid - for e.g. shorter urban trips.
