Honda initially expected the hybrid version of its midsize sedan to get an EPA rating of 49 mpg on the highway. Turns out, the Accord Hybrid can eke out a bit more mileage: The 2014 sedan is rated at 50/45/47 mpg city/highway/combined, besting the Ford Fusion Hybrid (47/47/47) and the Toyota Camry Hybrid (43/39/41).

The sedan’s powertrain combines a 124-kilowatt electric motor and lithium-ion battery with a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine. It can operate in fully electric mode, gasoline only or mixed power. Honda says it’s good for a driving range of 673 miles.

Production of the sedan starts today at the automaker’s Marysville, Ohio, assembly line; it’ll go on sale this fall, but Honda has yet to release pricing. Expect it to slot between the top-line 2014 Accord Touring’s $34,270 price and the Accord Plug-in Hybrid’s $40,570 sticker (both prices include destination).
