New Honda Civic e:HEV Hybrid Launches In Europe, On Sale This Fall

It packs a 181-horsepower powertrain and dual electric motors.

In April 2020, the 11th-generation Honda Civic made its debut in the United States. It was given new styling both inside and out, as well as other enhancements over the previous model. The new Honda will now be available in Europe, albeit with a different powerplant. Honda will introduce a hybrid version of the new Civic there later this year, dubbed the Civic e:HEV.

The new Civic hybrid is only available as a hatchback, and it will be the entry-level model in a market where the new Civic Type R will also be offered. The Civic in Europe has a different motor from the one sold in the United States, although the design is essentially same. The new Civic, on the other hand, has a few hybrid-specific features.

The narrative is the same on the inside, with the Civic’s redesigned cabin looking fantastic. It comes with a Bose 12-speaker audio system and a 9.0-inch infotainment screen with a 10.2-inch digital instrument cluster. Honda’s Sensing suite of enhanced safety systems, which includes lane-keep assist, blind-spot monitoring, and more, is also standard on the Civic.

A newly developed 2.0-liter Atkinson-cycle engine is combined with two tiny electric motors in the new Civic hybrid. 181 horsepower (135 kilowatts) and 232 pound-feet (315 Newton-meters) of torque are combined. In addition, the Civic is equipped with Honda’s new 72-cell lithium-ion battery pack. According to Honda, the engine modifications helped the car achieve “one of the greatest” thermal efficiency ratings for a production vehicle.

A new power control unit is situated under the hood, as well as the latest iteration of the brand’s Intelligent Power Unit. It’s smaller and lighter, according to Honda, but it has a higher energy density. Eco, Normal, Sport, and Individual are the four driving modes available on the Civic e:HEV. Individual mode allows drivers to personalise the engine, transmission, and instrument cluster display. Honda’s fixed-gear transmission is controlled by the power control unit.

In Europe, the new Honda Civic e:HEV hybrid will be available this fall. Pricing will be announced closer to the game’s release on the Old Continent. Honda has no plans to market the hybrid powertrain in the United States.
