Editor's note: An earlier version of this story mischaracterized the timing of Honda's plans to introduce a plug-in hybrid variant of the Pilot crossover.
Honda Motor Co. is planning a plug-in hybrid version of the Pilot crossover, new images from spy photographers indicate.
It will be the fourth electrified vehicle in the Honda lineup after the Accord, Clarity and Insight.
It's unclear when the Pilot PHEV will go on sale but Honda wants electrified vehicles to represent two-thirds of its global vehicle sales by 2030.
The Pilot's hybrid setup is expected to be a version of the two-motor hybrid powertrain used in the 2018 Accord Hybrid.
The Pilot will also be freshened for 2019 and will adopt styling cues from the latest Accord sedan and Odyssey minivan.
The changes are expected to include a retooled lower front fascia, new grille and revised LED headlights.
U.S. sales of the Pilot have jumped 41 percent to 63,297 through May. The latest Pilot could come this year, the source said.
The redesigned 2019 Insight hybrid sedan will go on sale June 29. It starts at $23,725, including shipping.
