Donned in one of the greenest body colours on the Paris Auto Show’s floor is the latest addition of Honda Jazz Hybrid, the eco- friendly version of the Japanese manufacturer’s successful model. The IMA hybrid technology, which is used in the Insight and the CR-Z, has also made its way into the hatchback, without compromising on interior space, as claimed by Honda. Inside the Jazz Hybrid, is the 1.3 litre i-VTEC engine found in the Insight, which is combined with a CVT gearbox. The fuel consumption figure is said to be 4.4 litres per 100kms and CO2 emissions is 104g/km.
Visually the Jazz Hybrid is distinguished from the current Jazz range with revised headlights, which have a blue surround, clear rear lights, new front grille, restyled bumpers and a chrome tailgate garnish. The new hybrid will be available in a range of existing colours plus a bespoke Lime Green metallic.
