Honda CR-V hybrid

Honda has introduced a prototype prototype hybrid version of its crossover CR-V for the European market. The premiere of the model will be at the Frankfurt Motor Show next week.

The hybrid unit of the car consists of a 2.0-liter gasoline engine running on the Atkinson cycle and two electric motors. One plays the role of a transmission generator. It is only one gear, but it provides “a constant feeling of power and high torque”.

The drive system operates in three modes – all in electricity, with an internal combustion engine only, and in a combined cycle. The last petrol engine charges the batteries. The modes are automatically selected depending on the driving conditions.

In Europe, the new Honda CR-V will initially be available with the 182 hp 1.5-liter gasoline turbocharger and the hybrid version will be available later. Diesel modification of the crossover is not foreseen. The launch of the model is planned for mid-2018.
