Honda has published data on a hybrid engine for the Jazz 2020 hatchbackFebruary 13, 2020
The press service of the Japanese brand presented the data for the updated jazz hatchback. The novelty of the 2020 model year will receive a 107 hp hybrid propulsion system with a fuel consumption of 4.5 l / 100 km.
As you probably know, the all-new Honda Jazz 2020 model year will be offered in Europe exclusively with a twin-engine hybrid powerplant. As this summer the product enters European markets, it is time for Honda to introduce the long-awaited specifications for the new hybrid system for the Jazz e: HEV.
The hybrid system consists of two compact powerful electric motors (generator and power unit) connected to a 1.5-liter i-VTEC gasoline engine, a lithium-ion battery and a fixed gearbox.
Although Honda does not disclose the power output of engines and ICEs, it says the total power of the e: HEV hybrid system is 109 hp. with instantly available electric torque of 253 Nm. This is enough to accelerate from 0 to 100 km / h in 9.4 seconds and achieve a maximum speed of 174 km / h.
Now a few words about fuel efficiency. The 2020 Honda Jazz standard model officially received a consumption of 4.5 l / 100 km with a CO2 level of only 102 g / km – both figures are calculated according to the European environmental standard WLTP. The high-performance Jazz Crosstar consumes 4.8 l / 100 km and emits 110 g / km CO2.
The e: HEV Hybrid System offers a choice of three driving modes: EV Drive, Hybrid Drive and Engine Drive. In EV Drive, a lithium-ion battery directly supplies power to the electric motor. In a hybrid operating mode, the engine feeds the electric motor-generator, which, in turn, supplies energy to the electric motor. Finally, Engine Drive connects the gasoline engine directly to the wheels through a lockup clutch.
The all-new Jazz e: HEV plays a key role in Honda’s desire to offer electrified power plants for all of its major models in Europe by 2022.
