Honda Jazz to get two-motor hybrid powertrain system

LinkedIn +

Honda has revealed its latest iteration of the Jazz, featuring advanced two-motor hybrid powertrain technology.

The first model in Honda’s European line-up to wear the new e:HEV powertrain badging, the new Jazz will use a comparable powertrain system to the CR-V hybrid.

Unlike traditional hybrids, in which the e-motor assists the engine, the engine produces electricity which assists the motor. The Jazz will only be available with the advanced two-motor hybrid powertrain.

Honda’s next-generation Jazz made its global premiere at the 2019 Tokyo Motor Show and will hit the roads in 2020.
