The all-new 2020 Honda CR-V Hybrid makes its public debut as the latest vehicle in Honda’s electrified initiative. Wayne Gerdes – CleanMPG – November 15, 2019 2020 Honda CR-V Hybrid Honda's electrification initiative and "Safety for Everyone" campaign will be joined at the hip as the company debuts an all-new auto show exhibit at the 2019 Los Angeles Auto Show on Nov. 20. The all-new 2020 Honda CR-V Hybrid is Honda's first hybrid-electric SUV for U.S. consumers. The 2020 CR-V Hybrid launches next spring using Honda's two-motor hybrid-electric powertrain as currently found in the Insight and Accord. It provides a quicker launch than the current CR-V from which it will be based and is anticipated to achieve a 42 mpgUS city rating, some 50 percent higher than the city rating of the non-hybrid CR-V with the award winning 1.5L turbo! If that metric is reached, it will achieve the highest city rated Hybrid CUV offered in the U.S. beating out the highly regarded 2019/2020 Toyota RAV4 Hybrid in the process. It also includes an 8-year and possibly 100k mile traction battery warranty similar to that provided on the Accord and Insight HEV. Like the standard 2020 Honda CR-V, the CR-V hybrid will arrive with the full line of Honda Sensing safety and driver-assist technology standard. Missing is Rear Cross Traffic Alert on the base trim of the non-hybrid and I expect the same for the Hybrid. There are no proximity sensors front or rear on any trim. The 2020 Honda CR-V Hybrid will be built in Honda's Greensburg, Indiana plant, and joins the Accord Hybrid and Insight as the third electrified Honda manufactured in America. New Honda Auto Show Exhibit An all-new Honda auto show exhibit for the U.S. makes its debut at the L.A. Auto Show. The new display will offer a hands-on experience for show goers interested in learning about the stories behind the Honda Brand.
