2024 Honda CR-V Concept
The expectations of the best-selling Honda in the U.S. that she will sell more electrified models. Honda has revealed its first ever, U.S.-made 2024 Honda CR-V Hybrid as part of a mid-cycle update for its popular CR-V.
The CR-V’s design, Honda has pretty much left alone. Light lenses and darker chrome will grace all 2024 CR-Vs, whether they bear the hybrid drivetrain or an internal combustion engine, as a more graceful integration of the fog lights into the front bumpers, as well. The CR-V Hybrid will also get ‘Hybrid’ badging, as an exclusive blue Honda shield in the grille, as well.
2024 Honda CR-V Interior
An exclusive push-button gear selector gets the CR-V Hybrid, which is a much more elegant application of the layout that Honda has been using in other vehicles like the Pilot and Accord. Than, inside the CR-V Hybrid, the new selector is flanked by drive mode buttons (ECO, Sport and EV) and liberates precious space that's been used for a wireless smartphone charging surface area. Also, the CR-V Hybrid boasts a new digital instrument display that presents the information one will require in a hybrid vehicle, or would like to see. The vehicle's power - charge status and a driver-selectable display for power distribution and regeneration, in there we find. The last exclusive feature inside the CR-V Hybrid is a pair of paddle shifters that act like on and off switches for deceleration vehicle. The driver can increase the amount of regenerative braking from the electric motor when decelerating, by activating the left paddle, a clever feature, the ill-fated Cadillac ELR, we first saw that.
Regardless of trim level, a cleverly redesigned center console bin in included in all other 2024 Honda CR-Vs. Honda says that it “is easier to use and offers more flexible storage options.” We talked about before that, all CR-V Touring models also now come standard with the wireless charging surface. An infotainment system operated through a 7.0-inch touchscreen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integration is available, and can also by complemented with a redundant in-house navigation system, as well.
2024 Honda CR-V Engine
Also are available remote engine start, dual-zone climate control, rear USB charging ports, and front passenger heated seats with power adjustments. The same in the Accord Hybrid, under the hood of the new Honda CR-V Hybrid we find Honda’s familiar two-motor hybrid powertrain. With combines two electric motors with a 2.0-liter, four-cylinder engine. They generate a total system output of 212 horsepower, together. The EPA hasn’t published fuel economy estimates yet, Honda is confident enough to predict an increase of 50 percent over the regular CR-V's city rating. The CR-V Hybrid give an estimated rating of 42 miles per gallon in the city, which, if accurate, would make Honda's hybrid crossover a single mpg more fuel efficient around town than the 41-mpg Toyota Rav4 Hybrid. Without affecting cargo space of versatility, the CR-V Hybrid's battery pack and its control systems have been shoehorned under the cargo floor. All CR-V Hybrids have Honda’s two-motor all-wheel-drive system, which allows transfer of power from the electric motor to the rear wheels through the activation of an electronic clutch, its first application in the US.
Other versions of the 2024 Honda CR-V will use the same turbocharged 1.5-liter four-cylinder engine, rated at 190 hp and mated to a CVT with the optional availability of AWD. For a reason, the Honda CR-V is the second-best-selling SUV in the U.S. That reason looks to have been bolstered with the addition of a hybrid option, with this 2024 refresh. We'll let you know how successful Honda's refresh was, after we have the chance to get behind the wheel. Honda says they will be shared closer to the 2024 CR-V's on-sale date, so Prices have not been announced yet. The gas-powered CR-V will have an autumn introduction, and will arrive early next year the hybrid version.
