Guess where Honda unveiled the 2016 Accord? Not Detroit, not by a long shot. The automaker showed it at its new Mountain View, Calif. research center. That makes sense because it is Honda’s first Accord that incorporates telematics platforms from both Apple and Google. Both of those companies, and Honda’s lab, are in the goldilocks orbit around Stanford University, a fervent area otherwise known as Silicon Valley. Honda opened its tech center there in 2000.
