Honda CR-V PHEV: not for us…

It sure looks like the all-new 2023 Honda CR-V will soon be getting a plug-in hybrid option. In China…

It would have been a great option here as well. The Honda Clarity PHEV was great. During my week-long test drive a few years ago, I was able to get 45 miles in the EV mode. And over 50MPG while in Hybrid mode.

Something like this in the new CR-V would be great. But it seems that would be a bit too daring of a move for Honda in the US. Which is really too bad.

  1. I'll bet this will go to Europe also. I'm happy to see Honda isn't just relying on their 2-motor hybrid system though. Let's hope it phases ito the US before the end of the coming CRV's cycle. This could really be a boon to Honda's brand retention – all four options: ICE, 2-motor e-HEV Hybrid, PHEV, and EV.
