The 2017 Honda Accord Hybrid features three different drive modes, utilizing their latest hybrid drivetrain. There's EV mode, where the car is purely driven by the electric drive motor, powered by the 1.3 kWh battery. Without sufficient charge, hybrid mode is engaged. This uses the engine purely as a generator, spinning a separate generator motor to charge the batter and send power to the drive motor. At highway cruising speeds, the system can enter engine drive mode, where the engine directly drives the wheels, with a set gear ratio. In this mode, the battery also charges up, so once the battery has sufficient charge the vehicle will switch to electric-only, and switch back and forth between the engine and the battery depending on charge. All of this is achieved using an overdrive lockup clutch, to lock the engine to the drive motor, spinning the countershaft and thus the differential.
