Honda will offer a hybrid version of the new Jazz in Europe within two years

Article by Christian A., on October 15, 2014

Although its hybrid cars are not quite popular in Europe as they are in the United States, Honda will continue to offer them in Europe and announced that it will import the hybrid version of the Jazz in 2016. This means a year after the standard model goes on sale in Europe.

According to JATO Dynamics, Honda sold 4,500 units of the Jazz hybrid last year in Europe, while Toyota sold around 50,000 units of the Yaris hybrid. As you may know already, Honda stopped selling the CR-Z hybrid coupe as well as the Insight gasoline-electric hybrid in Europe due to poor sales.

The new 2015 Honda Jazz was unveiled in prototype form this month at the 2014 Paris Motor Show and the production version will arrive at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show.

Honda will offer the 2015 Jazz with a new Earth Dreams Technology 1.3-liter i-VTEC petrol engine, bolted to a six-speed manual transmission or with an optional CVT automatic gearbox.

Honda already offers the new Jazz in Japan since September last year, where it is sold as the Fit. The hybrid version of the Fit carries a 1.5-liter petrol engine as well as an electric motor and a lithium-ion battery. We expect to see the same version in Europe, but only a year after the petrol-powered model will arrive.
