Employing Variable Cylinder Management technology (VCM), Honda Accord Hybrid isrepparttar first hybrid vehicle to deactivate three of its engine's six cylinders in certain conditions like highway cruising for greater fuel efficiency without affecting its performance.

The new 2005 V6 Accord Hybrid integratesrepparttar 135797 fuel economy of a four cylinder compact Civic and high-level performance.

Combining VCM with Honda's Integrated Motor Assist hybrid technology, Honda Insight and Civic Hybrid captured four ofrepparttar 135798 top five slots inrepparttar 135799 EPA 2004 fuel economy ratings. In 2005, Honda-developed fuel cell stack featuring increased performance and fuel efficiency, reduced cost andrepparttar 135800 capability to start in below freezing temperatures.

Leadingrepparttar 135801 pioneering efforts forrepparttar 135802 development and application of leading edge environmental technologies includingrepparttar 135803 first Low Emissions (LEV) and Ultra-Low Emissions (ULEV) vehicles andrepparttar 135804 first commercially certified fuel cell vehicle, Honda now again has proven its innovative ideas.
