New Honda Jazz: All about Hybrid-car view -

the glow at the front, an electric motor on the rear axle. Gas and electric Motor at the front, connected to a continuously variable transmission. Or a normal combustion engine with an additional electric motor into the transmission concepts for hybrid integrated: actuators, there is as the Sand of the sea. And as if that wasn't enough, comes Honda's new Jazz with the other.

Hybrid's on the back, but most of the time, the Jazz does so, as he would be an electric car. Because the drive 109 HP electric motor that takes over especially. The power comes not from a fat battery in the underbody, but is produced by a 97-horsepower gasoline engine of 1.5 litres capacity on Board. He drives a second Generator connected to the E-machine, which is a Lithium-ion battery under the rear seat that feeds the power to the drive.

Small power plant on Board

The principle is similar to that of the first Opel Ampera, the left to reload, but also on the network. A further difference is that At higher speeds, the clutch is closed and the petrol engine drives the wheels directly, because it is more efficient. However, electricity production by combustion non-energy nonsense? No, because the gas does not need to constantly increase the speed when more power is needed, but constant in the speed range of seed runs. The more power for Accelerate the battery does not need to be so big and expensive supplies.

And how the drive? Just like an electric car. Los sprints directly at the traffic light and "recuperated" when rolling on the red light. Just that the diesel sonor mitbrummt always. First, it is strange, that its speed matches never felt with the Tempo. And howl is also must as is the case with other hybrids, but only if you ride the highway losspurten for Threading.

In the city is over 80 percent as a Stromer on the road, up to a speed of 80 to more the half the time, and only about 80 km/h, the gasoline engine takes on more work. The factory fuel consumption ends up at 4.5 l/100 km on average. Not sensational, but the electric Feeling of the Jazz makes up for that. In addition, it provides the value in the small car-typical city traffic loose on the test lap around the lake, including the highway 3.9 l/100 km satisfied. Therefore, a Plug with the cash that the Hybrid is currently the only available drive-in might come later.

also New as the Almost-SUV

Honda is in A Box Design with but now much better all-round visibility, hidden in the petrol tank under the floor and can re-install in the rear of his cinema-folding seats: In which you fold the seat high and can transport Bulky items on the floor. A giant step for the interior, with soft surfaces, a few virtual instruments and a really intuitive touch screen makes. So precious-not a Honda-interior seemed a long time more. The trunk holds 298-1199 liters.

To the normal Jazz, there's also a new Crosstar-called Almost-SUV-Version is the highest equipment with plastic all-round planks. Honda-Switzerland-Vice-Matthieu Naegelen speculated that it will attract the most customers; of new, young, up to the Best-Agers with a need for a high seat. Drive, and driver assistance package are always the same. At market launch, as of now, the prices for the basic-Jazz at 23'900 Swiss francs to start with, the Crosstar comes from at least 30'050 CHF.
