Hybrid cars have become an increasingly popular choice as we move towards an environmentally friendly, electrified future. And, as an added benefit, they’re affordable to run – saving you some money on your fuel and tax bills.
Just like Honda’s range of hybrids, including the CR-V and the all-new Jazz, they have a traditional petrol engine underneath their bonnets, combined with an electric motor like those you’ll find in an electric car. Both work independently, but they can also operate in tandem. So, you can reap the benefits of being powered by whichever is the most efficient for the speed and conditions you’re driving in.
Honda’s CR-V Hybrid and Jazz have an efficient, single-gear transmission, which means they’re very simple to drive. And because there’s no plugging in, there’s no need to install a special charging socket at your home. You fill hybrids up like normal petrol cars – just not very often.
Because hybrid cars spend some of their time running on electric power, there’s less wear and tear on the engine. The brakes last longer, too – they don’t have to work as hard because the regenerative braking system helps slow the car down. As the brakes need replacing less often, servicing costs are kept down. For peace of mind, the Honda i-MMD battery is covered by a comprehensive warranty for the first five years or 100,000km – whichever comes first.
Hybrids deliver fuel efficiency and emissions benefits, so it’s well worth considering a hybrid as your next car. And with Honda’s range of hybrid cars set to grow, you’ll be seeing more and more of them on the roads in the future.
