HONDA has unveiled the latest generation of its HR-V compact SUV, available with a two-motor battery electric powertrain as standard for the first time.
Available in Europe from late 2021, the new HR-V is the latest model in Honda's line-up to wear the e:HEV (hybrid electric vehicle) badge, following the refreshed CR-V and all new Jazz that launched in 2020.
It expands Honda's electrified line up as the brand moves further towards its goal of electrifying all of its European mainstream models by 2022.
The design includes a new bold integrated grille, while the body shape incorporates a long bonnet and sharper, more vertical sides to ensure there is no impact on interior space, says Honda.
Its maker also claims the HR-V retains its predecessor's class-leading interior space, with four adults able to sit in maximum comfort.
Honda says the spacious interior has a solid, premium SUV feel, but with contemporary fabrics and soft-touch materials.
Thanks to a compact, integrated powertrain technology and centre tank layout, the all-new HR-V also retains the versatile Magic Seats that offer both 'fold-flat' or 'flip-up' seat flexibility, depending on cargo space required.
The all-new HR-V e:HEV will be available in Europe in late 2021. Customers can register their interest now on the Honda website:
