Honda presented the 2014 Accord Plug-in car to the city of Torrance in relation to the testing efforts being conducted by the automobile company to refine their technology in electric cars. Together with Fit EV, the car will diminish the discharge of CO2 gas, which according to many scientists, is one of the reasons for global warming.
Honda delivered the Accord 2014 Plug-in to the city of Torrance at a ceremony held at the Torrance City Hall in which the vice president of Environmental Business Development Office at American Honda, Steven Center presented the key of the Accord plug-in to the Mayor of the city, Frank Scotto.
“Honda’s continued relationship with the City of Torrance through our advanced vehicle testing has been instrumental in advancing our sustainable transportation solutions,” said Center. “Through real-world feedback of the Fit EV and now the Accord Plug-In, the City of Torrance plays an essential role in the refinement and evolution of electric drive vehicles and, ultimately, the expansion of customer adoption for this technology.”
This vehicle is not like any other ordinary electric car. With the help of Fit EV, it throws out less harmful substances that pollute the atmosphere. It is so efficient that Honda estimates the reduction of CO2 in city of Torrance by 74 percent.
The charging method of this electrical car is way different from the usual. You do not need a charging station to recharge this car. All you need is a 120-volt adapter and plug it in a 120-volt power source that can be easily found in your household. After three hours of charging, this vehicle will be ready to drive.
Google and Stanford University have been given an insight on this project, and they will evaluate the response of the general public and will study on human interaction with electric cars.
Honda has planned to provide a better drive through most advanced fuel efficient cars that are economical and reduce the emission of harmful waste gases. But for now, Honda has given the people of Torrance a modern yet sustainable mode of transportation.
