CR-V Hybrid Prototype from Honda

Honda CR-V Hybrid Prototype

The new Honda CR-V made hybrid

A first for Honda was revealed at the Frankfurt Motor Show with the unveiling of the Honda CR-V Hybrid Prototype, making it the first SUV in Europe to benefit from Honda’s hybrid technology. The CR-V Hybrid Prototype is instantly recognisable as a CR-V, but the updated design offers a glimpse of what to expect from the European specification of the all-new CR-V range. Featuring all the benefits of a hybrid Honda and making full use of groundbreaking advances in technology, the Honda CR-V Hybrid production model will be available from Brayleys in 2018.

Powered by Honda’s Intelligent Multi Mode Drive (i-MMD) hybrid system, the Honda CR-V Hybrid Prototype comes with a 2.0 litre i-VTEC petrol engine, as well as two electric motors. This unique system is fitted with a single fixed-gear ratio to maximise the smooth transfer of torque, rather than a conventional transmission. As an alternative, you’ll be able to opt for a 1.5 litre VTEC turbo petrol engine, with either a six-speed manual or a CVT transmission.

The Honda CR-V Hybrid Prototype offers three driving modes:

  • EV Drive is the all-electric mode with zero emissions.
  • Hybrid Drive sends power to the electric propulsion motor via the electric generator motor. Any excess energy is sent to recharge the battery.
  • Engine Drive means the petrol engine is doing all the work, but the electric motor can be used to add a boost, when extra power is needed for overtaking.

Thanks to the i-MMD, when you’re driving the CR-V Hybrid, you’ll never have to choose the driving mode, as it can all be handled automatically.
