- Acceleration: 9.4 seconds 0-100 km / hr
In Japan, the 2020 Honda Jazz is also offered as a pure 1.3-liter vacuum petrol engine.
Hybrid System In 2020 Honda Jazz e:HEV
The hybrid system works on the Honda Jazz e:HEV, this is the same as on the Honda CR-V Hybrid, where everything runs on the front wheels. Gas engines only drive the wheels directly in a constant speed range of more than 80 km / h because of the most efficient combustion engine (engine drive).
If this is not the case, the combustion engine will supply energy to one of the electric motors that act as a generator, and then the electric motor will drive the wheels. In hybrid mode, the car can choose how to drive.
In Pure EV, you can also select the purely electric mode as long as there is enough energy from a small battery.
System e:HEV uses a Honda i-MMD (Intelligent Multi-Mode Drive) dual-motor system, which replaces the Intelligent Dual Clutch Drive (i-DCD) setting. e:HEV is a streamlined version of the Sport Hybrid i-MMD on the Honda Accord Hybrid and CR-V Hybrid.
The conventional engine is a 1.5 l DOHC i-VTEC four-cylinder gasoline engine that is matched with two electrical motors. One of them serves as a generator to recharge lithium-ion batteries. In contrast, the other motor is an electric drive that is capable of rotating at speeds up to 13,300 rpm to handle low-speed acceleration.
With these specifications, the Honda e:HEV has a total output of 107 Tk and 253 Nm of torque, accelerating from 0-100 km / h for 9.4 seconds and a maximum speed of 175 km / h.
Emission and Drive Mode
CO2 system emissions are valued at 102 g / km and fuel savings up to 4.5 l / 100 km. This car has three driving modes that can change automatically, namely the EV Drive, Hybrid Drive, and Engine. The specialty of the Hybrid Drive mode is that excess energy from the engine can be redirected to restore the battery through a generator motor.
Honda Jazz offers several standard advanced safety features in driving, such as:
- Autonomous emergency braking
- Adaptive speed control
- Blind-spot warning
- Length: 4.00 m
- Wheelbase: 2.53 m
- Width: 1.70 m
- Height: 1.52 m
- Empty weight: 1280 kg
The new Honda Jazz e:HEV offers you interesting standard equipment. Hybrid is an interesting concept and can save fuel effectively. An appropriate choice for environmentally friendly urban transportation with a large interior regardless of its small size.
