Honda Cars India has started pre-orders for the City e:HEV with first deliveries expected in early May 2022.
This car has a dual motor hybrid system connected to a 1.5 liter petrol engine. This arrangement is capable of producing a peak power of 126 PS and fuel efficiency of 26.5 km/liter.
Honda Cars India is a wholly owned subsidiary of Honda and hopes to position itself as a major player in several special offerings.
Honda plans to launch 30 electric vehicle models globally by 2030. Several other features will be present in the new hybrid electric car, such as a high-performance front camera that will improve driver safety while driving.
This camera is capable of wide-angle viewing and helps to scan the road ahead, as well as notifying the driver when there is a risk of an accident and can also intervene in some situations.
The introduction of the Honda City e:HEV, according to the company, will mark the delivery of several electric models for the Indian market.
