When will the Honda CR-V Hybrid Come to the United States?
After a little digging, we found that Honda has already announced their intent to give the hybrid and electric treatment to their core volume models. This has us speculating that it will only be a matter of time before the CR-V is a hybrid sibling, as this model is their best-selling SUV. For the hybrid model, we can expect to see it powered by a 2.0-liter, Atkinson-cycle inline-4 engine paired to the latest generation of Honda’s clever two-motor hybrid system. This engine is also said to be able to drive in all-electric mode as well.
