The new Honda mother earth on Jenson Grand Prix car before out of Formula One, and now wants to blue skies for our children as its campaign for the new Jazz Hybrid.

At $22,990, the Honda Jazz is the cheapest petrol-electric hybrid car on in Australia, undercutting Toyota’s C by $1000.

It has a 1.3-litre, four-cylinder coupled the brand’s Integrated Assist hybrid system lifted from the Honda — that produces and 162Nm.

The petrol engine off when the car is stopped in traffic, a that contributes to an official figure of 4.5L/100km and 107g/km

That represents a 32 per cent over the regular Jazz though the hybrid Honda more fuel than the priced ($23,990) Toyota C . which uses 3.9L/100km and 90g/km of CO2.

The hybrid is a little bit less practical its petrol parent due to the battery in the boot; luggage storage by 110 litres and a space-saver spare in of the regular car’s full-size wheel.

It’s also heavier and has low rolling resistance tyres that can be prone to a or two when pushed around a

It has little of the drivers’ appeal by previous generation Hondas, but beside the point.

This is an reliable hybrid hatch doesn’t feel like a and should introduce more to green driving.

Hybrid represent a tiny fraction of the new car market, and Honda aims to just 50 Jazz hybrids month, a target it should reach.
