Accord Hybrid lands in Japan, 6/20 debut
 Date: May 31, 2013 01:41
 Submitted by:  danielgr
 Source: Honda JP
 Credibility Rating: N/A


Honda JP has just announced, as expected, the official confirmation of the rumours posted past week in TOV.

The main points:
- Japan launches the US Accord as an "Accord" in Japan (but seemingly only in hybrid form). That is the first time since the 6th gen split, and makes one wonder what will happen to the "Accord" nameplate in Europe.
- Hybrid (non-plugin) gets JC08 30km/L, to be compared with the standard Prius (30.4km/L), and Camry Hybrid's 23.4 km/L.
- Front fascia styling is shared with the US Accord PHEV, but wheels are regular alloys.

Here is the pic.


And here a rough literal translation of what it says:
Aiming at the harmony between men and car,
the Accord has always been the world's benchmark sedan.
In this year, Honda car's 50th anniversary,
reborn with the innovative 2motor sports hybrid system.
It carries the conviction that harmony does not stop with people, but it's increasingly being demanded towards the society and the planet.
For that precise reason we send this car to the world yet again with the Accord (hybrid) name.
