Otojatim.com - PT Honda Prospect Motor officially introduces the presence of the All New Honda Accord RS e:HEV, a premium Honda sedan featuring e:HEV hybrid technology and the sporty RS variant design. The launch event took place in Jakarta on December 7, 2023.
The latest generation of the All New Honda Accord not only embraces e:HEV hybrid technology but also introduces various advanced features, including Honda CONNECT connectivity, to enhance driving comfort and safety.
The Accord Hybrid was first introduced in the United States at the end of 2022 as an environmentally friendly vehicle with e:HEV hybrid technology. This technology combines electric motor and gasoline engine to provide an efficient driving experience in various conditions.
The latest feature in this model is the EV Switch, allowing drivers to choose between three power management modes according to their preferences. The Auto mode automatically adjusts to the most efficient driving mode, EV mode relies entirely on the electric motor for an emission-free experience, and Charge mode is used to distribute power from the gasoline engine to recharge the vehicle's battery.
Kotaro Shimizu, President Director of PT. Honda Prospect Motor, stated, "The All New Honda Accord is the embodiment of Honda's vision to deliver environmentally friendly products, support connectivity, and ensure safety for road users in Indonesia."
Yusak Billy, Director of Sales & Marketing and After Sales of PT. Honda Prospect Motor, is optimistic that the All New Honda Accord will maintain its reputation as the most premium Honda sedan in Indonesia.
The All New Honda Accord RS e:HEV is available in three color options: Platinum White Pearl, Crystal Black Pearl, and Ignite Red Metallic, with a price of Rp 959,900,000* (on-the-road price in Jakarta for the 2024 chassis number).
The All New Accord RS e:HEV brings significant improvements in design, premium interior features, and advanced engine performance.
