2020 CR-V Hybrid EV Mode Range
As its name implies, the 2020 Honda CR-V Hybrid is a hybrid vehicle. That means it uses a gasoline engine for most driving needs, but it can also travel short distances using electricity stored in its Lithium-ion battery system. Depending on a few factors like terrain and the overall health of the battery system, the 2020 CR-V Hybrid can travel a mile or two without using any gas at all.
This system is most likely to be employed when the vehicle is navigating a parking lot when such low speed driving is necessary. Honda engineers have wisely designed the three driving modes to be activated automatically to use the most efficient mode possible. No driver input will be required to switch among the three modes.
