Honda now joins the electric crowd. The automaker is out with its first plug-in hybrid. The 2014 Honda Accord Plug-in Hybrid sedan has mainstream looks that set it apart from some of the plug-in competition.
Electric power is good for trips up to about 13 miles. Anything longer, a four-cylinder gas engine kicks in.
The Accord Plug-in's ratings are 115 mpg on all-electric short trips and 46 mpg for city/highway travel with the gas engine.
But you'll pay for saving at the gas pump. The sticker price for the Accord Plug-in Hybrid is more than $40,000.
