The new Honda City hybrid model is all set to feature a battery pack coupled to its 1.5-litre petrol unit, along with slight tweaks to its design to make it sportier than before. We also expect Honda to introduce a few, new features on the Honda City e:HEV sedan.
The Honda City e: HEV is likely to be featured with two electric motors and a small battery pack for its 1.5-litre, four-cylinder, naturally aspirated petrol i-VTEC engine developing a combined output of about 110 bhp and 250 Nm of peak torque that sends power to the front wheels via a dual-clutch automatic transmission.
Honda will also be offering shift-by-wire technology with the new City hybrid model, as well as feature three driving modes- EV, Hybrid, and Petrol, that can be toggled via a rotary knob.
The design of Honda City e HEV sedan will receive a few elements that will heighten its sporty appeal and so would get sporty looking front and rear bumpers, black accents on the grille, ORVMs, and bumpers, while the cabin will get an all-black interior. The company will give its features list an upgrade and so will now be equipped with Honda’s Sensing Technology which adds a suite of active safety features too.
