DETROIT -- I spoke with Sara Pines regarding the 2013 Honda Accord Coupe 2-door concept. This car has an all new direct injection engine with a choice of three engines: 4-cylinder, V-6 and plug-in hybrid. The application of Honda ECO Assist system is on all Accord models. This vehicle is front-wheel drive.

"There are some new safety technology that was announced today," Pines said. "First, there is the lane departure warning and forward crash warning. Both systems use a camera mounted behind the windshield to alert drivers if the car is moving out of its lane or to warn drivers of a potential collision in front of them. It warns you by beeping and there is also a visual display notification. Second, there is the SMS text messaging function which allows your voice to send or respond to a text. These systems come standard on the 2013 model."

Another standard feature is the introduction of a Pandora Internet Radio interface, compatible with Apple, and iPhone which works with the vehicle's audio controls and i-MID.

As of this date, Honda has not announced the fuel economy or price. It will be manufactured in the U.S., specifically in Ohio.

The front bumper dynamic lines are highlighted by a four-sided honeycomb grille and multi-reflector headlights. Lower fog-light spoilers are accented by chrome inlays.

The hybrid version can use 120-volt, which can be charged in four to five hours or 240-volt, which charges in two hours. The car makes the choice of using electric or gas. All 2013 Accord models will incorporate the Honda ECO Assist system, technology that can enhance efficient vehicle operation at the touch of a button, while providing visual feedback to the driver to confirm a more efficient driving style.

"Supply has decreased in 2011 due to the tsunami, however, now the parts supply is there and we are currently filling our dealers," Pines explained.

The Honda Accord is one of Honda's best-selling vehicles worldwide and remains one of the top-selling autos in the U.S. The new 2013 Accord will be launched this fall. Their headquarters is located in Torrance, California.
