Honda Motor Inc. unveiled its new hybrid-electric hybrid, the first of its kind, in a ceremony on Thursday in California.
The Honda Accord Hybrid, or Honda Accord EV, features a 7-speed manual transmission and electric motors that generate electricity to run the engine.
The company said the new vehicle is powered by hydrogen, and it is the first to go into production in the U.S.
The company said it will start shipping the car to customers in 2019.
“The new Accord Hybrid is the next generation of Honda’s global automotive innovation and the first with all-electric performance,” Honda said in a statement.
“The vehicle will deliver the ultimate in fuel efficiency and range for the modern car enthusiast.”
The car will have a range of about 90 miles on a full charge.
The new hybrid will be available in two variants, one with the standard gasoline engine and another with a plug-in hybrid option.
Honda says the plug-ins will be offered with a range increase of up to 50 miles per charge.
