Default Is Accord only hybrid car with V6?

"car" not truck. My Mercedes loans-out a V6 hybrid, but it's a Hugh Jass SUV blech
The [2005-07] Accord is the only V6 hybrid car I know of. It also comes with a 15-year PZEV emissions warranty which is a definite plus. Did any other companies make a V6 hybrid car?

The Accord Hybrid is a 2.0L 4-cylinder.

You might be thinking of the Lexus hybrid. Although most of the hybrid cars I know of use a 4 and electric motor to give the power of a v6.

Aveng, you competing with IL2011 for most threads created this week?

2 new threads is excessive?!?!? BS. Anyway I thought all Honda fans knew about the Accord hybrid with a V6, so that's why I didn't specify (I'll edit my post). Oh and I've driven the Accord V6 hybrid... it's far from "crap". 0-60 in just over 6 seconds

Wait you stopped buying new cars? I thought they just started producing (in extremely limited quantities) the hydrogen powered cars (so you would of had to buy new)? Also, hydrogen is only 4$ a gallon from all the sources I read (well 4$ 1kg and 1kg = 1 gallon of fuel) so idk where you are getting it that's costing 20$.


[Edit]: I see you said leasing the hydrogen car, isn't that more wasteful than buying a new car? A brand new civic is about 21-24k right? 50% is about 10.5-12k. You are paying 200 a month (at minimum) to basically rent a car you won't be buying in 3 years and having mileage restrictions (assuming your lease is 3 years) due to you saying you don't buy new cars. 200 a month*12 is 2400 a year *3 is 7200$. This makes no sense, you could get an insight with low miles and a brand new battery for 7200$.

Oh also I forgot, if it really is 20$ a 'gallon' (kg whatever) then that's even worse! You are not only leasing but paying 4-6x more for fuel!

[Edit edit]: I just did some minor research and the cheapest I could find a lease on a hydrogen car is 450$ a month! Holy crap!!!!! That more than doubles my napkin math above!

It might be fast but 22 MPG for a hybrid is pretty crappy.

According to Toyota rep at the DC car show, their FCV lease will include "free" hydrogen for the term of the lease. I think Honda did that same deal on their limited production FCX.

What are you driving TheAveng?

Also, we own a Lexus RX400h. It's a V6 hybrid AWD crossover based on Camry and cousin to the Highlander. Able to tow 5000 lbs and gets 25 mpg easy. A very comfortable and reliable car loaded with amenities and high quality materials.
