The all-new Honda Jazz offers an easy driving encounter with efficient and responsive performance sent by e:HEV hybrid technological innovation as regular. The all-new compact car features the most powerful deal in its segment, combining amplified occupant comfort and ease, intuitive technological innovation, with seamless in-car connectivity and distant providers that seamlessly integrate with occupants’ day to day life.
The all-new Jazz e:HEV plays a essential role in Honda’s commitment that 100% of its mainstream European gross sales will element electrified powertrains by 2022. The car will be accessible across Europe in summer season 2020, with selling prices setting up in Germany from €22,000 for the Jazz and €26,250 for the Crosstar variant.
Advanced e:HEV hybrid technological innovation
For the first time, the Jazz will be sold completely across Europe with an sophisticated hybrid powertrain. Carrying Honda’s new e:HEV badge, the all-new Jazz has been engineered to deliver an extraordinary mix of solid performance and impressive efficiency, to enhance its class-main levels of interior comfort and ease and ultimate usability.
The e:HEV method is newly developed for Jazz and engineered to deliver an enjoyable driving encounter. It comprises two compact, strong electric powered motors linked to a one.5-litre DOHC i-VTEC petrol engine, a lithium-ion battery and an innovative set-equipment transmission via an smart energy handle unit, which all operate harmoniously with each other to offer a smooth and direct reaction.
The overall output of 109 PS / 80kW can propel the car to 100km/h in nine.4 seconds and on to a optimum speed of a hundred seventy five km/h. The influence is an easy and comfortable journey, irrespective of whether travelling via urban spots or cruising at substantial speed on motorways. Its gasoline-efficient hybrid method provides COtwo emissions from 102 g/km (WLTP) and gasoline economic climate of 4.5l/100km (WLTP) on the regular design and a hundred and ten g/km (WLTP) and 4.8l/100km (WLTP) on the Crosstar.
To deliver these types of a highly-satisfying driving encounter and extraordinary efficiency, the sophisticated e:HEV hybrid established-up seamlessly selects from 3 interchangeable push modes:
- EV Drive: the lithium-ion battery provides energy to the electric powered propulsion motor specifically
- Hybrid Drive: the engine provides energy to the electric powered generator motor, which in flip provides it to the electric powered propulsion motor
- Engine Drive: the petrol engine is linked specifically to the wheels via a lock-up clutch
In most urban driving conditions, ideal efficiency is accomplished via seamless transitions in between EV Drive and Hybrid Drive. For driving at highway speeds, Engine Drive is made use of, supplemented by an on-need peak energy ‘boost’ from the electric powered propulsion motor for fast acceleration.
In Hybrid Drive, surplus energy from the petrol engine can also be diverted to recharge the battery via the generator motor. EV Drive is also engaged when the car is decelerating, harvesting power via regenerative braking to recharge the battery.
Switching in between the 3 driving modes is unnoticeable to occupants Jazz engineers focused important attempts to minimising lag all through transitions. The substantial-speed electric powered motors have been developed in-residence by Honda to be as lightweight, compact, efficient and energy-dense as possible, the electric powered propulsion motor spinning at up to thirteen,300 rpm to crank out a substantial torque of up to 253 Nm for significant very low-speed acceleration.
Fairly than making use of a typical transmission, a solitary set-equipment ratio produces a direct connection in between relocating parts, ensuing in a smoother transfer of torque and a linear really feel all through acceleration. This format usually means Honda’s method is much more compact than a planetary eCVT ordinarily discovered in other hybrid vehicles, as very well as getting much more refined.
In addition to the smooth acceleration available by the e:HEV, experience comfort and ease in the all-new Jazz has been more increased due to the use of very low friction suspension and enhanced system rigidity
Clever packaging for unrivalled space
When developing the all-new Jazz, Honda engineers worked carefully with the style and design group to ensure the car retained the class-main levels of interior space that was the hallmark of previous generations. The luggage capability (with rear seats up) starts off from 298 litres and goes up to an impressive 1203 litres (rear seats down, to the roof). They accomplished this via the intelligent packaging of hybrid drivetrain parts into the chassis and within just the engine bay.
Fundamental developments contain downsizing the engine consumption method, the transmission such as the propulsion and generator motors, as very well as the energy handle unit (PCU) to make additional space. This permits the auxiliary 12v battery to also suit into the engine compartment. This intelligent packaging is designed possible by making use of the latest energy semiconductors for the energy handle unit.
Also essential to maximising cabin area is the positioning of the gasoline tank in the centre of the chassis beneath the front seats, which is exclusive in this class. This enables the Jazz to keep the exceptionally flexible rear Magic Seat configuration that features both fold-flat or flip-up seat versatility, dependent on load space needed.
New intuitive connectivity
The all-new Honda Jazz offers seamless in-car connectivity that permits proprietors to link to their day to day life with relieve. The straightforward-to-use Liquid crystal display touchscreen interface is developed to minimise driver distraction operation time for the most frequently-made use of controls is minimized by 58% compared with the previous design, furnishing a safer and much more ergonomic encounter.
The method interface is navigated making use of common smartphone-fashion usability, with swipe controls to scroll via web pages and lists. The display screen can be configured to match any use specifications, incorporating customisable shortcuts to commonly made use of capabilities and audio resources.
Related infotainment providers are accessed via the touchscreen or are voice activated, such as weather, parking destinations, tunes, navigation, area finding, and phone providers. The in depth suite of in-built applications can be supplemented by smartphone mirroring, via built-in Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, accessible via wi-fi connection or by making use of a USB cable. WiFi Hotspot is also accessible on the all-new Jazz for the first time.
The car’s interior designers paid good attention to detail when producing the uncluttered dashboard and interface. In reaction to client need, Honda has reinstated actual physical controls for essential capabilities, with tactile, precise-emotion dials for heating and ventilation settings.
Honda Personal Assistant
Related providers and apps accessed via the sophisticated touchscreen interface can also be activated making use of voice commands, via the Honda Personal Assistant. First noticed in the Honda e, the intuitive Honda Personal Assistant is a sensible synthetic intelligence (AI) facility which utilizes normal, sensible instruction-based conversations and contextual comprehension to access a assortment of online providers.
The exclusive Honda Personal Assistant is very easily activated by indicating: “OK Honda”, followed by the question or instruction. An summary face animation accompanies the humanised reaction and visually acknowledges interactions.
Context recognition permits buyers to converse obviously, with the AI comprehension the context of follow-up question and responses. It also enables real time research purpose, with context, to locate providers that are accessible at particular moments.
‘Honda SENSING’ lively security technological innovation
The all-new Honda Jazz arrives comprehensive with an upgraded suite of sophisticated security options and driver aids as regular, many thanks to a newly developed front vast see digital camera that enhances the industry of vision. Honda‘s Collision Mitigation Braking System has been enhanced with evening-time operation to detect pedestrians and cyclists, furthermore it now applies the brakes to prevent a collision when the car cuts across or turns into the path of an oncoming auto.
