Honda Unveils Japan-Built Accord Hybrid to Replace U.S. Model

  • Gas-electric sedan to get 48 MPG in city-highway driving
  • Honda plans plug-in hybrid and battery-only Clarity models

Honda Motor Co. unveiled a gasoline-electric Accord sedan that will be exported from Japan to help deal with currency fluctuations and sluggish sales.

The company stopped making Accord hybrids in Marysville, Ohio, last year while it shifted production to its Sayama plant near Tokyo. Honda showed off the new Japan-built model to reporters Wednesday in Detroit.
