    I can't be the first to have seen this but this is interesting. Sorry if it is a repost.

    A 2.0 litre Atkinson Cycle petrol engine works with two electric motors – one propulsion and one generator motor – controlled by an intelligent Multi-Mode Drive (i-MMD) system providing 3 driving modes: Electric Drive, Hybrid Drive and Engine Drive. Two-wheel drive and all-wheel drive versions are available.

    Some information on the hybrid system:

    Not a plug-in. No interest.

    Now a plug in CRV would be great

    Still better than diesel. It comes down to price, I would also check RAV4 hybrid, better performance, better fuel economy, better towing capacity.

    As for the green Environment, don't buy an SUV, even if it's PHEV. :D

    It is the same drivetrain in the current Accord hybrid.

    I currently have a CRV and a Clarity Plug In. If Honda made a CRV Plug In with 50 miles EV range with a real spare tire that would be the perfect vehicle for me. I wouldn’t need to have two vehicles like I do now. It could be my hauling / bad weather vehicle and my commuter vehicle all in one. With the money saved I could buy solar panels for house. I could be super green.

    The question is when is it coming to North America.

    In 2017 I read 2018
    In 2018 I read 2019
    Now I read as a 2020 model

    I would gladly swap out my current CRV for a hybrid CRV even though my current CRV has many thousands of good miles left in it.
