The All-New Honda CR-V Hybrid - Coming Soon!
New Hybrid Performance
Responsive, smooth, efficient. These are three of the benefits you'll discover in the all-new CR-V Hybrid. Its intelligent, highly advanced hybrid powertrain provides a seamless and engaging driving experience on any journey.
Another milestone for the Honda CR-V
i-MMD (intelligent Multi-Mode Drive) technology delivers exceptional performance alongside outstanding efficiency. It's aerodynamic lines, created around a totally new chassis, make this 5th generation CR-V a real driver's SUV. Once inside you’ll enjoy a luxurious, sophisticated interior displaying the latest in driver aids and infotainment alongside the comfort, space and versatility that CR-V is famous for.
The Honda i-MMD hybrid powertrain delivers a strong immediate response through two electric motors; it’s an exhilarating drive. But it’s not all about electronic torque, because our hybrid vehicles give you the best of both worlds. This type of intelligent drive technology will automatically switch seamlessly between electric power at lower speeds and petrol-power at higher cruising speeds, when it’s most efficient to do so. You don’t have to do a thing.
Smooth and quiet
The experience of driving a Honda hybrid is unique, there’s nothing quite like the calm and serene feeling of gently pulling away in the electric mode. Then, when the petrol engine comes to life, the transition is so quiet and smooth, you’ll wonder if the engine has actually started.
No need to plug in
The great thing about the hybrid is that you don’t need to look for a charging station, or have a special plug socket installed at home. The engine will continually charge the battery while it’s running – all you have to do is fill up with petrol as you normally would. It really is that simple. We imagine you’ll be filling up a lot less as well.
A hybrid will cut your fuel bills, saving you money. Using less fuel also means low emissions – much better for your wallet and the environment.
Peace of mind
You’ll have no worries for a decade, or over a distance of 62,000 miles – whichever comes first – because the Honda i-MMD battery is totally covered by an extensive and comprehensive warranty; we’ll be with you all the way.
How Hybrid Works
The i-MMD (intelligent Multi Mode Drive) system determines how to use fuel and electrical energy in the most efficient way, which means there’s no requirement for the driver to adjust between the three driving modes; Electric Drive, Hybrid Drive and Engine Drive.
In Electric Drive, the propulsion motor draws its power solely from the batteries, delivering super-quiet and low-emissions driving.
In Hybrid Drive, the petrol engine supplies power to the electric generator motor, which in turn delivers power to the electric propulsion motor, so that any excess power from the petrol engine is diverted back through the generator motor to recharge the batteries.
In Engine Drive, the wheels are driven by the petrol engine, with an ‘on-demand’ peak-power ‘boost’ available from the electric motor, ideal when you need to make a quick overtaking manoeuvre.
