The 2014 Accord Plug-in comes with an electric motor, a four-cylinder engine and a continuously variable transmission (automatic). Reviewers said the Accord Plug-in has lively acceleration from a stop and strong passing power. According to the EPA, the 2014 Accord Plug-in can travel up to 13 miles on only battery power, which is less than the 2014 Ford Fusion Energi but more than the 2014 Toyota Prius Plug-in can travel. Once the battery is depleted, the gas engine delivers an EPA-estimated 47/46 mpg city/highway, which is excellent for a 2014 affordable midsize car. The 2014 Accord Plug-in’s battery can be recharged in three hours using a standard outlet, according to Honda. Critics reported that the Accord Plug-in has a comfortable ride and composed handling while cornering. The Honda Accord Plug-in’s regenerative brakes, which help recharge the battery, operate smoothly and surpass competitors’ regenerative brakes.
Most automotive journalists wrote that the 2014 Honda Accord Plug-in has an attractive cabin. The majority of the materials in the car are upscale, they said, though some noted that the eco-friendly seat upholstery feels cheap. The Accord Plug-in earned praise for its spacious rear seats. Its trunk space is half that of the non-hybrid 2014 Accord because of the space the battery occupies. The Accord Plug-in doesn't have an opening between the trunk and the cabin either, so there is no way to expand its cargo area. The 2014 Accord Plug-in comes with a long list of standard features for the class, including dual-zone automatic climate control, navigation, a rearview camera, a dual-screen infotainment system, a passenger-side blind spot camera, lane departure warning, forward collision warning, adaptive cruise control, Bluetooth, Pandora Internet radio capability and a USB port.

The 2014 Ford Fusion Energi can go farther on electric power than the Accord Plug-in. Unlike the Accord Plug-in, the Fusion Energi has an opening between the trunk and the cabin, so you can store longer items. Reviewers noted that the Fusion Energi has upscale cabin materials and a large rear seat.
