2011 Honda Jazz Hybrid news, pictures, and information
Honda Jazz Hybrid, Fully Flexible*Jazz/Fit Hybrid keeps same interior cargo level as non-hybrid models.
*Motor and control system shared wîth Insight and CR-Z.
*1.3-liter i-VTEC paired wîth electric motor.
The Honda Jazz Hybrid will make its world motor show debut at 2010 the Paris Motor Show, further demonstrating Honda's continuing commitment to petrol-electric hybrid technology.
The launch of the latest addition to the practical Honda Jazz line-up will mark the first time a parallel hybrid vehicle has been available to B-§egmènt consumers. The IMA hybrid motor and control system are shared wîth the Insight and CR-Z hybrids, taking advantage of the proven reliability of this important technology. With almost two decades of development and 10 years of sales behind it, the Honda IMA system has proven itself to be a flexible and dependable technology, wîth over half a million vehicles on the road benefitting from its combination of low emissions and fuel economy.
The new model will feature the same engine as the Insight hybrid, the 1.3 litre i-VTEC engine is combined wîth a CVT gearbox wîth an electric motor sandwiched between the two to create a parallel hybrid system. Like the Insight and Civic Hybrid models the Honda Jazz Hybrid will be capable of running on the electric motor alone under some medium and low speed conditions.
Much of the Honda Jazz's practicality is derived from its height but despite being taller than the Insight, the Jazz Hybrid manages to maintain fuel consumption and CO2 emissions on comparable levels.
Visually the Honda Jazz Hybrid is distinguished from the current Jazz range wîth revised headlights, wîth a blue surround, clear rear lights, new front grille, restyled bumpers and a chrome tailgate garnish. The new hybrid will also be available in a range of existing colours plus a bespoke Lime Green metallic.
Inside the cabin is also given a fresh look wîth darker single colour dashboard, which contrasts strongly wîth the blue lighting of the dials and stereo. The new hybrid is also available wîth leather trim, the first time this has been available on a Jazz model in Europe. The Honda Jazz Hybrid will go on sale in some European markets in the early part of 2011.Source - Honda
