I could be wrong here but that sounds like the same engine as a stock Fit? If that is the case and they are planning to just get more power from the electric motor then that is not worthy of the Type R badge at all. Maybe Si but not Type R. It needs to have a real sports engine or at least massage it like the B and K before. It must have that delightful Type R sound.

I like twin clutch gearboxes on high output sports cars but on a small hot hatch I would rather to row my own. This car needs to make the Fiesta ST look silly or don't bother degrading the Type R badge.

That's what I'm saying.

Hopefully it's a Type-R coming, but not based off the Hybrid. Interesting approach but a 170HP, 150LB-FT N/A 1.5L DOCH i-VTEC Direct Injected ED engine with a 6spd or optional 7DCT sounds better to me, given it revvs into the 7,000RPM range and sounds like heaven..

Otherwise, I guess 190HP Hybrid isn't too bad in a small hatch that carry's more then you'd expect.


My statement about a N/A engine would be more of a Fit Si to rival the Fiesta ST, even though it has less power, it's still a Honda and I'm sure it will weigh a lot less so performance could be roughly on pare.

That's 58hp from the electric motor. You'd lose that electric assist on a track real quick unless you have some serious generating going on during braking. I don't expect anything much more than the IMA system for a sporty hybrid if it's only recovering energy from braking.

Probably just the Fit RS Hybrid?

Honda's dct has an electric motor in the transmission, It might not be necessary for the vehicle to be a hybrid as this transmission was also destined for the ctr.....????

This would be awesome, but realistically what are the chances:

1) It's real?
2) It'd come to the US?

Probably slim on both, sadly. I'm surprised this topic got so little attention - I suppose this board is sick of the Type-R vaporware for seemingly the past 10+ years.
