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.
