Honda showcases the first-ever CR-V Hybrid in a new commercial, highlighting that, from the city to the mountains, you’ll have fun wherever you go.
The 30-second spot, which informs that the best-selling Crossover Utility Vehicle over the last decade is now available as a hybrid, follows a young couple as they leave the city and go the mountains at the wheel of the new CR-V Hybrid, featuring Sport mode and standard all-wheel drive.
The song used in the ad is the 2018 single “Mountains” by pop music group LSD (consisting of Sia, Diplo and Labrinth).
The 2020 CR-V Hybrid becomes Honda’s first electrified SUV in the United States. The automaker’s hybrid lineup in the US also consists of the Insight, Accord Hybrid, and Clarity plug-in hybrid.
The CR-V Hybrid combines an Atkinson-cycle 2.0-liter inline-four with two motor-generators and a relatively tiny 1.4-kWh lithium-ion battery pack. There is an electric-only EV mode, but the small battery limits the range to a mile or two.
The CR-V Hybrid trims include LX, EX, EX-L, and Touring. Prices start at $28,870.
