Default Honda reveals next-gen Fit Hybrid

From AB




2013.07.19
All-New Fit Hybrid Achieves Fuel Economy of 36.4 km/L, More than 35%
Improvement - The all-new Fit Hybrid will be the first model to be
equipped with SPORT HYBRID Intelligent Dual Clutch Drive, Honda's
lightweight compact hybrid system -


TOKYO, Japan, July 19, 2013 - Honda Motor Co., Ltd. achieved fuel
economy of 36.4 km/L*1 (JC08mode) on the all new Fit Hybrid, which is
the highest*2 among all hybrid models in Japan. The all-new Fit Hybrid
is scheduled to be introduced and go on sale in Japan this September.

The all-new Fit Hybrid will be the first model to be equipped with the
SPORT HYBRID*3 Intelligent Dual Clutch Drive (i-DCD), Honda's
lightweight and compact one-motor hybrid system suited for small-sized
vehicles. Although this is a one motor hybrid system, this system
realized the EV drive by disengaging the engine and motor. The SPORT
HYBRID i-DCD is one of the Earth Dreams Technology, Honda's
new-generation powertrain technologies which realize both the fun of
driving and excellent fuel economy at a high level.

Adopting a newly developed inline 4-cylinder 1.5L Atkinson cycle (high
expansion ratio cycle) engine, the SPORT HYBRID i-DCD consists of a
7-speed DCT*4 system with a built-in high-output motor, and IPU
(intelligent power unit) equipped with a built-in lithium-ion battery.
Moreover, adopting an electric servo brake system that increases
electrical regenerative efficiency and a fully-electric compressor
that reduces engine load, the SPORT HYBRID i-DCD improves the
vehicle's fuel economy by more than 35% compared to a current IMA
hybrid system.

The SPORT HYBRID i-DCD automatically changes to three driving modes by
engaging and disengaging the engine and motor depending on driving
situations. The three driving modes are the EV Drive Mode for motor
only driving, the Hybrid Drive Mode for both engine and motor driving
and the Engine Drive Mode for engine only driving.

Featuring the highest fuel economy among all hybrid models in Japan,
acceleration g-force more powerful than conventional models and
rhythmic and linear acceleration feel, the SPORT HYBRID i-DCD realizes
fun driving.

*1 Tested by Japanese Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and
Tourism
*2 Honda internal research, excluding plug-in hybrid models (as of
July 2013)
*3 SPORT HYBRID is the collective name for Honda's newly developed
advanced hybrid systems that adopt Earth Dreams Technology.
*4 Dual Clutch Transmission
