Honda Jazz HybridHonda claims the world's first subcompact hybrid.
You should know this car with slightly different trim it's called the Fit in the U.S. But most of the rest of the world calls it the Honda Jazz, and yet nobody yet knows it as a hybrid. That changed with this introduction at the Paris Auto Show. Honda is growing how this is the first hybrid in the subcompact class. Under the hood, a 1.3 liter gas 4-cylinder engine, just a little guy, would be electric motor; all of it really right out of the rather a lamely selling Honda Insight Generation 2. As a result there are no plans yet for bringing it to the U.S., not too much of a lost since it's expected that the MPG numbers would be about the same as the current Insight; 40, 43, which are really good, but compared to a Prius, not so good.
