Honda have in the past been criticised for not developing a new model that can compete against rivals at both Nissan and Toyota in the Eco car market, however, the new Jazz Hybrid model will be competing head to head with models such as the Nissan Leaf.
Honda have certainly proven their dominance in the motorbike world time and time again and we believe that with the addition of this all new Hybrid model of Jazz they may soon be set to conquer the car industry too. The Civic over the years has been one of Honda's biggest sellers in both the new and used car trade but will the Jazz Hybrid model take it's spotlight?
With that being said, we see some new added features that will come along with this Jazz variation at the time of release and we some added pieces of equipment come along with the car too. Firstly though, lets take a look under the bonnet. We see the inclusion of a 1.5 litre, four cylinder engine that is also joined alongside by an electric motor.
The Jazz Hybrid will overall put out 133 units of brake horse power and will therefore make the sprint from 0 to 62 miles per hour in a time of just 10.2 seconds. The vehicle will reach overall top speeds of 120 miles per hour. The vehicle is only available as a front wheel drive variant and also comes fully fitted with a seven speed dual clutch automatic transmission system.
In regards to some of those added pieces of equipment we were talking about, we see the welcome addition's of 15 inch alloy wheels, LED lighting, wireless Bluetooth connectivity and a dual zone climate control system also comes thrown in as part of the package too. So with these perfect combinations in mind we believe that this model could be a strong potential for other EV machines on the market from the likes of Nissan with the Leaf, Toyota with the prius and BMW with the i3.
We are pleased to announce that this model will be made available for purchase this year although an exact date is still yet to be confirmed by the company owners. In regards to how much it will set you back, expect to pay a cost of around £18,500 for your brand new Honda Jazz Hybrid.
