While this has not been confirmed by Honda themselves, Civic’s chief designer Daisuke Tsutamori did tell AutoGuide that the Civic platform is flexible and it could incorporate the latest electrification technologies.
They already have a 2015 Civic Hybrid and we’ve already posted about their talks regarding which motor system they would use. They’re working on the next gen Accord hybrid that’s slated to launch in the middle of this year.
