According to a media report, select Honda dealerships are taking bookings for the City Hybrid for an undisclosed token amount. It is said that the car will be based on the top-spec trim and could be priced around Rs 18 lakh (ex-showroom).
The City Hybrid will be powered by a 1.5-litre, 4-cylinder petrol engine that makes 97 BHP and 127 Nm. It comes paired with two electric motors. While one of them acts as an integrated starter generator (ISG), the other powers the front wheels via a fixed ratio gearbox. It makes 108 BHP and 253 Nm.
