The electric motor assists the engine during — as the Civic Hybrid the stored energy is directed to the electric motor to supplement the performance. All of this takes automatically without additional from the driver.

The ultra-thin DC motor delivers the world’s output density for an electric achieving 30 per cent more than the Insight — any increase in size. This at 1000 rpm. To maximise the efficiency, the Civic Hybrid has a Variable automatic transmission that closely matches performance.

The shiftless system is smoother conventional automatics with torque loss, allowing the to make the most of the engine’s
