Honda has released information for the new e:HEV hybrid powered Jazz and Jazz Crosstar models, the latest additions to Honda’s growing ‘e:Technology’ range of vehicles in Europe.
The Jazz e:HEV promises a return in excess of 62mpg (or 4.6 litres/100km ), while emitting a claimed 102g/km.
All models should feature an advanced two-motor hybrid powertrain as standard, with Honda promising it will usher in exceptional ‘EV-like’ driving dynamics with advanced technology, increased efficiency and reduced running costs.
The e:HEV powertrain will introduce the efficiency benefits and performance of hybrid power to the mass market B segment, and accelerate Honda towards achieving its ambition of all European mainstream models featuring electrified powertrains by 2022.
The fourth-generation Jazz adopts a cleaner design than its predecessor, with more simple surfacing and crisper details. The new premium design will be available in a wide range of colours.
Embodying its more rugged crossover style, the Crosstar will be exclusively available in two-tone combinations, with a gloss-black roof contrasting the expressive colour palettes.
Honda ssays the new Jazz is the embodiment of the brand’s commitment to a fully-electrified range and is another symbolic step towards its electric vision for 100 per cent of European sales to be electrified by 2022.
Honda Jazz deliveries in right-hand-drive are expected from later in the spring.
