Following in the footsteps of the Insight and Civic, Honda offered a hybrid version of the popular Accord starting in the 2005 model year. It was priced $3,000 higher than a base model EX V6 and offered a marginal upgrade in MPGs to its gasoline counterpart.

Honda discontinued the hybrid following the 2007 model year, but brought it back in 2018 as part of the 10th generation Accord.
