Honda Jade hybrid

Honda is the perfect name to associate with Japan. It is one of the companies that bring fame to the country with their inventions, products and reliability that are precious for the entire auto field. And speaking of innovation, the Japanese car manufacturer has just introduced the Honda Jade hybrid in the home country.

The Honda Jade hybrid is a six-seater which will have the public debut in February. The MPV used to be a model specially designed for and sold in China starting 2013. It seems it did a good job there, so the producer decided to sell it in Japan, too, with a 2+2+2 seat configuration. The vehicle is equipped with Collision Mitigation Braking, the Road Departure Mitigation, the Lane Keeping Assist and Adaptive Cruise Control with Low-Speed Follow.

The Honda Jade hybrid is powered by Honda’s Sport Hybrid i-DCD hybrid system that contains a 1.5-liter direct-injection petrol unit and an electric motor producing 29.5 HP (22 kW) and 160 Nm (118 Nm), powered by a lithium-ion battery. The powerplant is linked to a seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox. For comparison, the Chinese version of the model is powered with a 1.8-liter i-VTEC petrol engine. The hybrid field has gained another vehicle, which is pretty good-looking despite of being an MPV.
