Under the Hood
Honda equips the CR-V Hybrid with the third generation of its two-motor hybrid system. The hybrid powertrain teams two electric motors with a 2.0-liter Atkinson-cycle engine for a combined output of 212 horsepower. That’s 22 more horses than the non-hybrid CR-V. The unique system uses one of the electric motors as a generator/starter motor, which works with the electric propulsion motor and gas engine without the need for a transmission or gear changes.
