Intelligent and dynamic
Our unique powertrain is intelligent and is always automatically shifting between Electric, Hybrid and Engine drive modes, according to the conditions.
The ‘Electric Drive’ provides exhilarating acceleration from a standstill – just like an electric car – as our e:HEV system can use full electric power independently from the combustion engine. This mode also works at moderate speed to deliver a smooth and quiet driving experience.
A clever hybrid
In ‘Hybrid Drive’, both the combustion engine and electric motors seamlessly share the work, constantly adjusting to cope with steep hills, town traffic and open roads more efficiently.
Recharging and regenerative braking
At higher speeds, such as cruising on a motorway, the combustion engine will provide the power and recharge the battery. When you slow down, regenerative braking will also charge the battery from energy that would normally be wasted. All this energy can provide you with a strong boost of pure electrified acceleration when you need it – particularly useful when overtaking.
The e:HEV, full hybrid system is more convenient than a plug-in hybrid, as it eliminates the hassle of overnight charging. A PHEV has regenerative braking, but it’s not enough to fully recharge, so it will rely heavily on the combustion engine when the battery is low. Consequently, it uses more fuel to overcome the weight of the larger battery and heavy powertrain if not plugged in and charged properly.
Our all-new SUV hybrid
The all-new HR-V brings together sport-coupe styling, a best-in class spacious interior and our innovative e:HEV technology for an energetic driving experience. You can drive up to 740 km on a full tank and with CO2 emissions as low as 94g/km* the HR-V is a major step toward fulfilling our dream of a fully electrified line-up as we move ever closer to an emission free world.
