2018 Honda CR-V Hybrid unveiled in China, coming to US soon

The 2018 Honda CR-V Hybrid was unveiled at the 2017 Shanghai Auto Show, with an announcement due at a “later date”.

Green Car Reports asked Honda US if the CR-V Hybrid will be coming to the US. They responded, “We have already announced our intent to electrify core volume models, including light trucks. CR-V will logically be a part of that, and we’ll announce timing for the U.S. at a later date.”

Little is known about the CR-V Hybrid, but it’s thought it will have the same powertrain as the 2017 Accord Hybrid, which has a total power output of 212hp (158kW).

The 2017 Accord Hybrid has a 2-liter 4-cylinder Atkinson cycle gas engine with 143hp (107kW) and 129 lb-ft (175Nm), and an electric motor with 181hp (135kW) and 232 lb-ft (315Nm).

It has a lithium ion battery, and an EPA combined mileage of 48mpg (4.9L/100km).
