The pure hybrid version of the City sedan called the Honda City e:HEV has been launched in India.

Variant, Pricing

It is available in a single ZX variant and commands a substantial hike over the standard Honda City Petrol CVT model-  a premium of Rs 4-4.5 lakh.

It carries a price tag of Rs 19.50 lakh.

Deliveries are set to commence immediately.

Engine, Transmission, Fuel Efficiency

The highlight of this version of the legendary sedan is the 1.5-litre petrol engine with Atkinson cycle.

The petrol motor produces 96bhp, the traction motor generates 107bhp and the generation motor gives a boost of 94bhp.

All put together, the City hybrid has an output of 125bhp and 253Nm of peak torque.

The motors are linked to the eCVT single-speed transmission.

Honda claims a fuel efficiency of 26.5kmpl.

Exterior

Appearance-wise it gets subtle cosmetic changes over the standard version.

The front and rear logos get a blue border to symbolize the hybrid nature of the car.

The fog lamp housings get a claw-type design and the rear features a boot spoiler and diffuser with carbon fibre pattern.

Interior

Inside the sedan one can see that it has a dual-tone Ivory and Black theme for the leatherette upholstery.

Some of the other features are: 

  • Electric parking brake with auto-hold function
  • ADAS features like lane keep assist
  • Lane departure warning
  • Adaptive cruise control
  • High beam assist
  • Collision mitigation braking

Safety

The car has a host of safety features including six airbags, a lane watch camera, hill start assist, and a tyre pressure monitoring system.

In terms of telematics, the Honda Connect is now compatible with Alexa and Google and offers functions like remote engine start, door lock/unlock, AC on/off, and more. 

It presently stands alone without any direct rivals in the segment.

With its price tag of Rs 19.50 lakh (ex-showroom), it is an attractive proposition against the mid-size SUVs and EVs.
