Honda’s newest launch the City e:HEV has taken over the country with its brilliant design, hybrid engine and exclusive Honda features. It is the first Honda vehicle to bring the Honda Sensing technology or ADAS features to India. The new hybrid sedan is one-of-a-kind marvel designed to introduce strong hybrid technology in the Indian market.
The City e:HEV is a 5-seater sedan with unique capabilities to enhance engine performance and fuel efficiency. It is also loaded with cutting-edge technology to provide a safe, secure and comfortable driving experience. It really is the perfect vehicle for any kind of road in India, especially with its ground clearance of 165 mm which is more than enough for a Sedan to travel within the city limits as well as on the highways with relative ease. The new City e:HEV is also loaded with sophisticated safety features, unique driving aids and numerous convenient features for a safe and comfortable journey.
One significant advantage of driving a hybrid electric vehicle is that you do not need to plug in your vehicle for further charging and also save up on fuel costs. The City e:HEV is one such vehicle which is powered by an internal combustion engine and an electric motor, which uses energy stored in batteries. This battery is actually charged through regenerative braking and the internal combustion engine. HEVs combine the advantages of high fuel economy and low tailpipe emissions with the strength and range of conventional vehicles.
The unique e:HEV system in the Honda City e:HEV is a marvellous invention which allows for easy transition between driving modes. It is also the crucial factor for enhanced performance and never-before-seen fuel efficiency. It has three different drive modes to help you achieve an easy and convenient driving experience. These unique modes include the EV Drive, Hybrid Drive and Engine Drive.
- 1.EV Drive: This unique system allows for the vehicle to be driven exclusively by motor, using a battery for a silent and zero emission drive. It is perfect for city driving, especially if you’re commuting every day. The EV Drive uses only the Lithium-ion battery for powering up your vehicle.
- 2.Hybrid Drive: The Hybrid Drive, on the other hand uses the petrol engine as the generator while the motor drives the wheels which provides an adrenaline-charged driving experience. It has a powerful acceleration performance while driving.
- 3.Engine Drive: With the Engine Drive, it’s based entirely on the engine itself to directly drive the wheels with high fuel efficiency. Also, the motor provides a tremendous power boost whenever it is required for better efficiency. It is perfect for cruising down the highways at high speeds.
The City e:HEV is a Strong Hybrid Electric Vehicle (SHEV) with a self-charging lithium-ion battery that produces a system combined maximum power of 126ps and a fuel efficiency of 26.5km/l. The Lithium-ion battery has a nominal voltage of 172.8 V, which will last for a long time.
The Electric Drive Motor on the other hand is AC Synchronous meaning it produces a maximum power output of 109 ps at 3,500 rpm and a maximum torque output of 253 Nm at 0-3,000 rpm. And that’s not all either, the Petrol engine in the City e:HEV is a powertrain, whether used in tandem or on its own.
