Additionally, all 2021 CR-V Hybrids come standard equipped with all-wheel drive (AWD).
How much the CR-V Hybrid costs will depend on which trim level you select. However, the 2021 CR-V Hybrid EX base model has a starting price of $30,560 MSRP*.
If you appreciate the original Honda CR-V, value fuel economy, and don’t wish to sacrifice horsepower, the Honda CR-V Hybrid is worth it. The 2021 CR-V Hybrid makes 212 total system horsepower and achieves fuel economy ratings of 40 city / 35 highway / 38 combined mpg.*
No, the Honda CR-V Hybrid does not need to be plugged in since its power is derived from a gasoline engine / electric motor combination.
The Honda CR-V Hybrid pairs a 2.0-liter, DOHC i-VTEC® Atkinson-cycle engine with an electric motor and e-CVT transmission. CR-V’s hybrid powertrain features three driving modes, including ECON, Sport, and EV to customize your efficiency and the Hybrid Driver Information Interface allows you to how the vehicle is being powered and battery status.
Currently, according to FuelEconomy.gov, only all-electric and plug-in hybrid cars purchased new in or after 2010 may be eligible for a federal income tax credit.
