For the 2020 model year, Honda introduced its newest hybrid vehicle, and it might not have been the model most people were expecting. That’s right, it was a crossover rather than a sedan, as the Honda CR-V Hybrid made its debut. Now in its second year, the 2021 Honda CR-V Hybrid is available near Tacoma WA, offering all of the benefits and amenities fans have come to expect from the iconic Honda CR-V with the added benefit of a hybrid powertrain. It makes an excellent option for any shopper looking for a hybrid vehicle with more space to offer than a sedan.
Let’s first take a look underneath the hood of the 2021 Honda CR-V Hybrid, where its two-motor hybrid powertrain rests. The powertrain pairs a 2.0L 4-cylinder engine with an electric motor and throws in an e-CVT transmission and intelligent all-wheel drive system. The powertrain enables it to generate a total of 212 horsepower alongside 232 pound-feet of torque. Despite all that power, it still manages to achieve 38 miles per gallon combined across city and highway driving*.
The Driver Information Interface and the Display Audio system both offer unique screens dedicated to hybrid information, showing the flow of power at any given time among other things. The CR-V Hybrid is capable of being placed into three different drive modes depending on your habits and what type of driving you’re looking to do. ECON mode improves fuel efficiency, Sport improves performance instead, while EV mode allows you to operate exclusively on electric power for a short time.
Finally, the CR-V Hybrid features regenerative braking, which is able to be adjusted by selectors mounted on the steering wheel. If you’re interested in a 2021 Honda CR-V Hybrid of your own, be sure to reach out to us right here at Honda of Fife. We look forward to hearing from you!
