As we detailed in our First Drive report of the 2014 Honda Accord Plug-In Hybrid, the powertrain involved is a bit confusing for non-engineers to understand. Of course, you don't need to know, exactly, what's going on under the hood, but we were still curious about how the Accord PHEV integrates Eco mode with the adaptive cruise control. Specifically, does the ACC adjust speed to take maximum advantage of regenerative braking (and thus electric range)?
