Honda e:HEV hybrid technology
Electric drive delivers instantaneous acceleration from a stationary position by using the energy stored in the battery to power the electric motor.
Hybrid drive uses electric motors together with the petrol engine during everyday driving conditions to provide optimum performance and exciting acceleration.
The Jazz’s combustion engine is used to maintain higher speeds on motorways and charges the battery at the same time.
Regenerative braking uses the energy generated by the electric motor when braking to recharge the battery.
