Hond has published the first images of the upcoming next-generation HR-V SUV and shared the first technical details. The official premiere of the crossover is scheduled for February 18, and with the change of generations, the model will completely turn into a hybrid.
- The crossover will be equipped with a hybrid power plant e: HEV by analogy with the already become hybrids CR-V SUV and Jazz hatchback. On the updated CR-V, a two-liter gasoline engine and an electric motor develop 215 hp, and the Jazz is equipped with a 1.5-liter engine paired with two electric motors - their combined output is 109 hp. and 253 Nm of torque.
Exactly how much the crossover engines will develop is still unknown. However, judging by the official statement of the manufacturer, the new HondHR-V will not receive traditional internal combustion engines. The hybrid SUV will be part of Electric Vision's proprietary strategy to electrify Hond's entire European lineup by 2022.
- Two photos of the future novelty have been officially published, but they do not give an idea of the changes in the appearance of the HR-V: one picture shows the e: HEV nameplate, the other shows a part of the stern of the SUV with a rear pillar and a lamp.
- In Russia, the emergence of a new generation of HondHR-V is unlikely. Earlier, the Japanese company announced that it was going to curtail the supply of new cars to Russian dealers during 2022.
