What is the most efficient Honda car available in Maine?

As we begin take the turn into the next decade more drivers than ever in Augusta ME are putting gas mileage at the top of their list of most important features. There's an implicit satisfaction that comes with saving money at the pump at one of the best ways to do that is behind the wheel of a Honda hybrid vehicle.

Which Honda Models are Hybrid?

Honda has committed itself to develop the best hybrid models on the road today. Their offerings begin with the Honda Insight, a compact hybrid sedan that excels in both its fuel economy while having satisfying performance. On top of that, the manufacturer has reconfigured one of its most prominent models, the Honda Accord into a hybrid. However, the Honda Clarity, which comes in three different model types gets the best mileage of them all.

Which Honda Model is Right for Me?

Obviously, this is a loaded question and one that is entirely relative. The Honda Insight is perfect for drivers that need a spacious trunk and a practical design. The Honda Insight gets 151 horsepower and 197 pound-feet of torque and features a fuel economy of 55 mpg in the city and 49 mpg on the highway.

For experienced Honda drivers looking to keep with something familiar, the Honda Accord hybrid is an excellent choice. It's a mid-size sedan that offers more interior space alongside an increased power output of 212 horsepower with a fuel economy of 48 mpg in the city and 48 mpg on the highway.

Meanwhile the Honda Clarity offers Waterville ME and Lewiston ME the height of hybrid capability. The numbers differ based on each model, so here's a quick breakdown.

  • Honda Clarity Plug-in Hybrid: 212 horsepower, 232 pound-feet of torque, electric-only range of 48 miles, 42 mpg combined.

No matter which Honda hybrid model you choose, Auburn ME and Camden ME can rest assured knowing that they will get the most efficient vehicle in Maine.
