If I wanted to avoid the CVT, would the hybrid be e-CVT like the current 2017 Accord Hybrid?

Will the CR-V get the same type of hybrid system?

Honda emailed me an invitation "To Get On The List for an early glimpse" of the new Accord. Here's the info the invite listed:

1.5-liter turbocharged engine with either a 6‑speed manual or continuously variable transmission

2.0-liter turbocharged engine with either a 6‑speed manual or 10‑speed automatic transmission

2.0-liter two-mode hybrid powertrain with electronic continuously variable transmission

What is a two-mode hybrid powertrain? The 2017 Accord Hybrid press release says "Honda's second-generation i-MMD uses a two-motor hybrid approach with three operating modes EV Drive, Hybrid Drive and Engine Drive." Which mode is the 2018 Accord Hybrid missing?

Thanks for that info. Glad it has the e-cvt.

Two-mode??? Must be dropping the Engine Drive somehow, but that would probably require a big battery. Hmmm...

Or that could have been a typo, and they meant "motor."

Honda's proofreading sometimes could use help! I present the margin comments of the 2013 Accord Sedan Owner's Manual as Exhibit "A."

IIRC, Jeff and others here have pointed out press-material inconsistencies in the past. And I'm almost certain I've seen some spec-sheet gaffes, myself.

Even the early build cars have mistakes, as I personally witnessed in 2002, when I wandered into one of the local Civic centers after their 7th-Gen Accord show & tell just after they went on sale. Car on the floor was a beige EX-L with NAVI; may have been a V6, don't recall. As I'm looking at the controls, I realized that there was no adjustment ring for the variable-delay wipers!

Wonder if the purchaser of that car ever had that addressed?
