- Honda has announced that it will launch a hybrid version of its 2024 Civic compact car.
- The Civic Hybrid will come in both sedan and hatchback body styles and will have a version of the larger Accord Hybrid powertrain, according to the company.
- The hybrid model will not replace the petrol model currently offered, but will be sold alongside the hybrid model when it hits the market in 2024.
The next step in Honda’s plans to hybridize its lineup comes in the form of the 2024 Civic Hybrid, which comes as both a sedan and hatchback. The company’s electrification plans include moving to an all-electric lineup by 2040, but more hybrid offerings in the meantime aim to fill that gap.
Last April, we reported that Honda had launched a hybrid version of its Civic hatchback in Europe. We still don’t know exactly how Honda will tune the European car’s powertrain, which will consist of a 2.0-liter inline-four and two electric motors that combine to make 181 horsepower. , we can only hope it approaches the 204 horsepower offered by the closely related hybrid setup of the 2023 Accord Hybrid.
Consumer attention has shifted from cars to light trucks and SUVs, but Honda still sees sedans and hatchbacks as an important part of its business.
“The market has moved away from passenger cars, but cars are still important to Honda,” said Mamadou Diallo, vice president of auto sales at American Honda. to the brand.”
The introduction of hybrid powertrains to the Civic lineup is part of Honda’s plans to retain these young buyers. Honda will also begin taking orders for the Prologue, an all-electric SUV, this year as well, marking the first step toward broader electrification of its lineup over the next few years.
Expect to hear more about the Civic Hybrid as we get closer to the car’s launch date, which is set to go on sale in early 2024.
