2010 Paris Motor Show: 2011 Honda Jazz Hybrid

Article by Christian Andrei, on October 1, 2010

Honda unveiled the 2011 Jazz Hybrid at the 2010 Paris Motor Show, its latest Jazz that features hybrid technology. The Jazz will be equipped with Honda’s petrol-electric IMA system, giving it the recognition as the world’s first B-segment hybrid. Honda claims that the hybrid Jazz will offer lowered CO2 emissions and improved fuel economy.

The Japanese manufacturer said that the hybrid Jazz will have the same engine that powers the Insight hybrid – a 1.3-liter i-VTEC engine combined with a CVT gearbox, in a parallel hybrid system. The new Jazz Hybrid will deliver a fuel consumption of 4.4 liters/ 100 km or 64.2 mpg in the UK.

Like the Insight and Civic Hybrid models, the hybrid Jazz can run on electric motor alone under certain medium and low speed conditions.

When it comes to appearance, the hybrid Jazz features revised headlights with a blue surround, clear rear lights, new front grille, restyled bumpers and a chrome tailgate garnish.

The new hybrid will still be offered in a range of existing colors but buyers can now get the model in bespoke Lime Green metallic.

The car’s interior has a darker single color dashboard that contrasts with the blue lighting of the dials and dashboard instruments. The hybrid will be offered in leather trim, marking the first time that this was offered on a Jazz model in Europe.
