2012 Honda Jazz Hybrid To Launch In Malaysia This February, Says Insider Source

The 2012 Honda Jazz Hybrid will be coming to Malaysia in February, according to an insider source within a prominent Honda authorised dealer. The highlight is of course that the Jazz Hybrid is the cheapest hybrid model in Japan, undercutting the likes of the Insight, the CR-Z, the Civic Hybrid, and the Prius from Toyota.

The Honda Jazz Hybrid is differentiated from its more polluting sibling by a new front end with a redesigned front grille, new blue-tinted headlamps, and a revised bumper; a new rear end with clear tail lights, a revised bumper and more chrome finishing on the rear hatch; as well as blue-lit instruments and dials for the interior.

Under the bonnet, Honda's petrol-electric IMA hybrid powertrain is made up of a 1.3-litre i-VTEC four-cylinder petrol engine with 88 HP and 121 Nm, a CVT transmission and an electric motor with 14 HP and 78 Nm that is powered by Nickel-Metal Hydride batteries. The same hybrid powertrain is used in the Insight.

The Insight is currently the cheapest hybrid model in Malaysia, priced at RM 99,812 (OTR with insurance), benefiting from our government's removal of import and excise duties on hybrid and electric vehicles. The Honda Jazz Hybrid is expected below that price, providing Malaysians with yet another value buy. Enjoy the live photos of the Honda Jazz Hybrid on display at the 2010 Paris Motor Show!
