About the Honda CR-V Hybrid

For the very first time in the storied history of the Honda CR-V, this award-winning compact SUV will be available as a hybrid for the 2020 model year. As the best-selling crossover in America for over two decades, the Honda CR-V Hybrid will be the brand’s first electrified SUV in America upon its debut. Production will take place at Honda’s Greensburg, Indiana plant alongside the standard CR-V and the Insight hybrid sedan. Honda is targeting two-thirds of its global automobile sales to come from electrified vehicles by 2030 and the all-new CR-V Hybrid marks the start of accomplishing this objective. Its sophisticated two-motor hybrid powertrain allows the CR-V Hybrid to achieve remarkable efficiency. Refreshed exterior styling also helps it stand out from the ordinary. Cutting-edge technology inside the cabin combined with groundbreaking standard safety features helps make the all-new Honda CR-V Hybrid a truly remarkable compact crossover SUV.

What the Critics Say

With the 2020 CR-V Hybrid, Honda continues to offer up a functional, high-quality, and thoughtfully designed cabin. The biggest change to the cabin is the revamped center console, which now includes more room for purses and other bags, as well as wireless phone charging and a push-button shifter on the hybrid.” — Motor Trend
We already think the gas-powered CR-V is a better all-around vehicle than the gas RAV4. If Honda can couple those core CR-V strengths with fuel economy that matches or tops the RAV4 Hybrid’s, it has a shot at tapping into some of that latent demand.” — Edmunds

Honda CR-V Hybrid Features

Honda CR-V Hybrid

Efficient Performance

If you’re the type of driver who demands maximum efficiency, the Honda CR-V Hybrid lets you enjoy the benefits of its sophisticated two-motor powertrain. Shared with the current Accord Hybrid, this unique powertrain combines two electric motors with a 2.0-liter 16-valve DOHC Atkinson cycle engine with greater than 40 percent thermal efficiency. These characteristics allow the CR-V Hybrid to operate without the need for a conventional automatic transmission, allowing for smooth and seamless power delivery at all speeds. The compact intelligent power unit (IPU), housing the hybrid battery pack and its control systems, is mounted under the cargo floor to preserve interior versatility. In total, the Honda CR-V Hybrid delivers 212 horsepower with an anticipated increase in EPA-estimated city fuel economy by 50%.

Honda CR-V Hybrid Interior

Luxurious Interior

Driving a fuel-efficient SUV no longer means making sacrifices on comfort thanks to the introduction of the Honda CR-V Hybrid. Unique interior trim helps distinguish the CR-V Hybrid from its traditional sibling. The most apparent of these is a distinctive push-button gear selector flanked by three switches for Econ, Sport or EV modes. You’ll also enjoy an instrument panel that’s unique to CR-V Hybrid models featuring a display with power distribution and regeneration readouts. Available leather-trimmed seating surfaces lets you and your passengers relax as the miles fly past your windshield. With an available 7-inch touchscreen Display Audio interface with Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ integration – your favorite apps and media can always come along for the journey.

Honda CR-V Hybrid Safety

Groundbreaking Safety

For the ultimate in confidence behind the wheel, every Honda CR-V Hybrid comes standard with the Honda Sensing® suite of driver-assistive safety technologies. Examples of these technologies include Lane Keeping Assist (LKAS), Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) with low-speed follow, Road Departure Mitigation (RDM) with Lane Departure Warning (LDW), and the Collision Mitigation Braking System™ (CMBS™) with Forward Collision Warning (FCW) and pedestrian sensing capability. One feature that’s unique to the CR-V Hybrid is a new Acoustic Vehicle Alerting System (AVAS).
