New Rendering and Info on Global Small Hybrid
 Date: May 19, 2008 08:01

TOV Forum member 'Art of Snow' posted this scan from a recent issue of Mag-X. Depicted in this scan is a rendering of Honda's new "Global Small Hybrid" model, along with a few details. Danielgr translated some of the key points:

For those that may trust this info in what seems Japanese Mag-X, here are the figures translated into something easy to read:
- Price below 2 million Yen.
- Fuel economy in Japanese cycle : 37 km/L.
- Size: 4400 x 1720 x 1520 mm (as tall as a Fit, but larger and wider).
- Japanese debut: March 2009

For comparison, here is the same Japanese data for the Civic Hybrid.
- Price : 2.3 -> 2.6 Myen.
- Fuel Economy : 26 -> 31 km/L (depending on trim, lowest for 16" luxo-trim, highest for a base trim without side-airbags or curtain-airbags).
- Size : 4540 x 1750 x 1435 mm

All in all, compared then with the middle weight Civic (which is more representative of what's offered in foreign markets), MagX is saying that the new GSHybrid should be:
- 20% cheaper.
- 20-30% more fuel efficient.
