According to Kelly Blue Book, the 2014 Honda Accord plug-in hybrid electric vehicle retains more resale value after 36 months than any other electric vehicle.
Only debuting as a 2014 model year, the Honda Accord Plug-in hybrid won the title in its first year. The Accord PHEV sits at the top of the segment with a combined rating of 115MPGe and gets an all electric range of 13 miles.
At 36 months, the Accord plug-in hybrid retains 53% of its value, and at 60 months, is expected to fetch around 40% of its original purchase price.
It takes anywhere from two to two and a half hours to recharge the battery when plugged in to a 120-volt outlet but you can get that time down to an hour or 90 minutes when drawing power from a 240-volt outlet.
The 2014 Honda Accord Plug-in Hybrid sits at the top of the segment in terms of fuel economy with a combined rating of 115 MPGe for those first 13 all-electric miles. These figures combined with the usual features found on the gas-powered Honda Accord earn the Plug-in Hybrid the title of best resale value in the electric vehicle category for 2014.
