The hybrid version of Honda’s best-selling Honda CRV has begun mass production at Honda of Canada Mfg.
It is equipped with a brand-new two-motor hybrid system made at Honda’s Ohio Transmission Plant and a newly improved Atkinson-cycle engine specific to hybrid models made at Honda’s Anna Engine Plant in Ohio.
Honda intends to use a cutting-edge two-motor hybrid-electric system to electrify 50% of Honda CRV sales in the US each year.
Honda’s new fourth generation two-motor hybrid-electric system, which features a pair of electric motors arranged side-by-side in a parallel axis layout, is standard on the all-new 2023 CR-V Sport and Sport Touring trims. This hybrid system also includes the more refined 2.0-liter Atkinson-cycle four-cylinder engine.
