Honda hybrid to Jazz up Paris

2010-08-25 08:08
Honda has shown the first official images of the newest and smallest addition to its hybrid family, the Jazz Hybrid.

The car uses the same 1.3-litre petrol engine and electric motor arrangement as the bigger Insight, which also issues drive via a continuously-variable automatic transmission.

No output figures have been released, but expect more detail when the hybrid debuts at next month’s Paris Motor Show.

Setting the Jazz Hybrid apart from its regular sibling are its new grille and front bumper designs, and tweaked head- and taillight fittings.

South Africans eager to get their hands on this practical Jazz with the added environmental injection won’t have that long to wait, either. Honda SA revealed at the recent launch of the CR-Z sports coupe, that the Jazz Hybrid should go on sale here from early 2011.
