The Honda Jazz Hybrid showcased at the 2010 Paris Motor Show is the latest addition to the Jazz line-up of the company. It will be powered with the compact Honda IMA system, which helps the vehicle to retain it’s availability for ultra-flexible “Magic Seats” and 300 liters of boot space. The IMA battery pack is loaded under boot floor which allows the “Magic Seats” to stay and fold as such in the non-hybrid versions and provide 831 liters of boot space.
There are over half a million vehicles on the road powered by the IMA system and its combination of low emissions and fuel economy attracts more people towards hybrid vehicles from the company. The system installed in the Jazz is the same IMA system as in the Insight hybrid which features a 1.3 liter i-VTEC engine with a CVT gearbox. It has the lowest CO2 output of any automatic car in the B-segment with emissions as low as 104 g/km.
The visual differences from the existing versions are mainly the revised headlights, which have a blue surround, clear rear lights, new front grille, restyled bumpers and a chrome tailgate garnish. The interior will also be different with a darker single color dashboard, blue lighting of the dials and centre console.
The model will also be featuring a range of Genuine Accessories and technological comforts including doorstep garnishes, a variety of exterior and interior stickers, B-pillar garnishes, alloy wheels, Solid State Drive navigation system, Solid State Drive navigation system and rear entertainment system.
The car, according to Autobloggreen, will be available in the European markets in early 2011 and further specifications and price are yet to be announced.
