Honda Finally Brings CR-V Hybrid To America
After lots of anticipation, Honda is finally bringing the CR-V Hybrid to America. It arrives along with a host of other upgrades to the popular model for 2020. The 2020 Honda CR-V, sporting freshened styling, new features and revised powertrains, including a new CR-V Hybrid, will be built in the company's Greensburg, Indiana plant. The 2020 CR-V Hybrid is the first electrified SUV from the Honda brand in America and is expected to deliver a 50% improvement in fuel economy over non-hybrid models. The CR-V Hybrid joins the Accord Hybrid and Insight as the third electrified Honda manufactured in the U.S. as the company moves to apply its advanced two-motor hybrid-electric system to all of its core U.S. models in the years ahead. In addition to the new hybrid-electric variant, major upgrades to the 2020 CR-V include bolder front and rear styling, re-designed wheels and standard Honda Sensing safety and driver-assistive technology. All non-hybrid 2020 CR-V models are now powered by the 1.5-liter VTEC Turbo engine, previously available only in EX and above trims. The 2020 CR-V will go on sale at Honda dealerships nationwide this fall, followed by the launch of the all-new CR-V Hybrid in early 2020. The Honda CR-V is America’s best-selling crossover utility of the past two decades.
