Civic Hybrid is back, starting next spring
Both sedan and hatch get hybrid drivelines
The Honda Civic Hybrid is coming back. The electrified version of the Honda compact will return for the 2025 model year, with both hatchback and sedan models.
Honda started building Civic Hybrid models back in 2001 during the seventh generation of the popular sedan. The eighth and ninth-generation cars also had hybrid variants, but with the 10th-gen car in 2015, the Civic Hybrid disappeared from our market. It was somewhat replaced by yet another try at the Honda Insight badge, Honda’s third and once-again short-lived attempt to separate gas and hybrid small cars.
The 2025 Honda Civic Hybrid will get a version of the two-motor hybrid powertrain found in the Accord and CR-V. It is much more efficient than prior Honda hybrids and has lead to the two vehicles seeing a 35 percent take rate for the hybrid variants.
Sedan versions of the Civic Hybrid will be built at Honda’s plant in Alliston, Ontario. Production will start in the spring. Hatchback models will be built at a Honda plant in Indiana, starting shortly after the sedan.
Honda expects 40 percent of North American buyers to pick the hybrid. Pricing and specs have yet to be announced.
