Honda Reveals New Hybrid Civic in Europe

Civic e:HEV means all Honda Europe electrified

  • Civic e:HEV makes more power, torque than 1.5T

  • Offers 5L/100 km in testing

This might be the most interesting of all of the different versions of the 11th generation Honda Civic No, it’s not the Type R, it’s the Honda Civic e:HEV. It’s just been revealed in Europe, and we’re wondering when it will arrive in North America.

The Civic e:HEV will be the only powertrain offered in Europe, at least on the standard Civic model, a move that completes the electrification of Honda’s entire product portfolio in the region. It will also come solely in the hatchback body shape, and Honda points out that 2022 marks 50 years of Civic hatches around the world.

A 2.0L four-cylinder engine that runs on the fuel-sipping Atkinson cycle is paired with two electric motors. Honda says it’s a newly developed engine, not the one we’ve seen in Honda hybrids before.

Honda says the result is 181 hp and 232 hp, one horsepower and 55 lb-ft of torque more than the 1.5T available in the gas-powered Civic. Honda says the thermal efficiency of the engine, its ability to turn fuel and air into power instead of just heat, is 41 percent. One of the highest figures of a road car.

With a fixed gear transmission for reduced friction and a smart control unit, Honda estimates better than 5L/100 km in WLTP testing.

While the rest of the car is the same Civic hatchback on sale here, this hybrid powertrain has our attention. Please, Honda, bring this one here.
