A Battery Breakthrough
Lithium-ion (Li-ion) batteries have been used in consumer electronics for more than a decade, and in that time, the capacity and durability of these efficient batteries has increased dramatically. Today, we've mounted a 6.7kWh Li-ion battery pack behind the rear seatback, which helps protect it in the event of a rear collision.
Compared to most other Li-ion batteries currently in use, the Accord Plug-In's battery can be charged quicker, has twice the number of charge cycles, and can operate in a much wider temperature range. How's that for a battery breakthrough?
