What Type of Electric Motor System Does the Honda CR-V Hybrid Have?

What Type of Engine Does the Honda CR-V Hybrid Run on?

The electric motors of the Honda CR-V come pared with a 143-horsepower i-VTEC® inline four-cylinder (I4) engine, which generates 129 pound-feet of torque.

What Type of Battery Powers the Honda CR-V Hybrid?

The Honda CR-V comes powered by a lithium-ion polymer battery, which receives a continuous charge from the engine and helps power the electric motors/electronics. Unlike PHEVs, the lithium-ion battery of the Honda CR-V Hybrid does not require an external charging cable.

Can the Honda CR-V Hybrid Run on EV Power Only?

Yes, the Honda CR-V Hybrid includes a three-mode drive system, including EV, Sport, and ECON settings. The Honda CR-V Hybrid will temporarily switch to electric power exclusively to save fuel when in EV mode. If you find yourself nearing an empty tank in Albuquerque, the EV drive mode setting can help get you to the nearest service station.

Does the Honda CR-V Come with All-Wheel-Drive?

Yes, whereas the Honda CR-V comes available with Real-Time AWD, the Honda CR-V Hybrid comes fully standard with it.

Is here a Way to Monitor Hybrid/EV Power on the Honda CR-V Hybrid?

Yes, the standard Driver Information Interface allows Honda CR-V Hybrid drivers to monitor their power flow. This readout allows you to monitor your average fuel consumption and lets you know when the Honda CR-V Hybrid is ready for full EV mode power.

Is the Honda CR-V the Only Hybrid/EV SUV from Honda?

Yes, the Honda CR-V is, as of now, the only hybrid/EV SUV from Honda. However, it is not likely to be the last renewable-energy option from Honda, so we encourage you to stay tuned for future updates!

What Other Hybrid/EV Technology Does the Honda CR-V Hybrid Include?

The Honda CR-V Hybrid comes with regenerative braking, which helps preserve the lifespan of these critical components for longer than the average internal combustion car. The deceleration selectors come mounted on the steering wheel and help you increase and decrease the regenerative braking capabilities of this SUV, which, in turn, charges the lithium-ion battery more when you release the accelerator.

Do Honda Hybrid Come Backed by Any Additional Warranties?

Yes, all Honda hybrids/EVs like the Honda CR-V Hybrid come backed by a Hybrid/Electric System Component Warranty covering the propulsion system for up to 96 months/100,000 miles, whichever occurs first. This warranty comes offered in addition to the 60-month/60,000-mile Powertrain Limited Warranty, covering the engine, transmission, transaxle, and driveline components.
