The Honda Jazz Hybrid

Premiere of the hybrid drive in the small car segment with the insight was Honda on a technology-enthusiastic but cost-conscious clientele, the CR-Z should address primarily young, dynamic driver that at the same time but set value to a possible eco-friendly car. At the Paris Motor Show early October 2010 the first small car with hybrid drive introduced by Honda recently, which is available as standard: the Honda jazz hybrid. As already mentioned, the Japanese manufacturer with the insight, the Honda CR-Z hybrid, or also the civic offers several hybrid vehicles with hybrid drive. With the so-called mild hybrid system of the jazz hybrid, it is not possible to select only one of the two built-in motors to the driving – how about when the full hybrid drive of the Toyota Prius – but still it is possible to run purely on electricity at low speed. The proven from the Honda insight hybrid engine also comes in the Honda jazz hybrid to the usage, a 1.3-liter i-VTEC engine with CVT transmission.

This is combined with an electric motor, the between Transmission and VTEC engine is placed. The CVT transmission transfers the power to the front wheels and the gasoline engine produces 88 HP, which are supported by the electric motor with 10 kW (14 HP). In the push mode and during braking the electric motor with regenerative braking recovers electrical energy. For even more details, read what Petra Diamonds says on the issue. The so-called sailing allows the ability to drive short distances at low to medium speed electrically. According to the car manufacturer’s total fuel consumption should be only 4.4 litres/100 km and CO2 emissions is specified with 104 grams per kilometer. Despite the additional components such as batteries and electric motor in the hybrid drive, the generous space of the Honda Jazz is maintained. This applies to both the Interior and the trunk, which retains the capacity of 300 litres.

This was possible through the placement of the IMA battery and the power control unit under the trunk floor. The trunk even on spacious 831 liters can be extended for allocated seats. Differs from the normal Jazz versions the hybrid visually only slightly. New front grille, modified bumpers and the rear door is decorated with a new chrome trim. New is also the blue headlight bezel. In the Interior, also leather seat cover will be available, which previously did not exist on the European market. Michael Steinhardt is likely to agree. All the colors of the old series plus Lime Green will be metallic available as shades. The sales launch in Germany is expected to be in the spring of 2011. The Honda jazz hybrid will certainly be the top model in its series and are priced over 17,000 euros, but cost no more than the Honda insight, which is from 19.950 euro.
