Is the 2014 Honda Accord Plug-In Hybrid, at $429 per month, priced to compete with lease deals offered on other readily available plug-in vehicles in the US?
Today, Honda officially launches its 2014 Accord Plug-in Hybrid in both New York and California. With this launch, Honda enters the growing plug-in hybrid vehicle market in the United States.
Honda celebrated a banner sales month in December. In fact, 2012 was American Honda's fourth-best sales year ever, and its best sales result since 2008. This could be a good thing for plug-in cars because the company will begin selling the Accord Plug-in Hybrid in California and New York on January 15. The Accord will become the most popular passenger vehicle platform yet to offer a plug-in option.
