Honda FIT – EV Model

Honda has revealed that it’s planning to install its two-motor hybrid system in the upcoming fourth-generation version of its Fit small hatchback, which will be first shown at the upcoming Tokyo Motor Show later this month.

Also called i-MMD, the hybrid system combines two electric motors with an Atkinson-cycle engine. In the Honda Accord Hybrid and upcoming 2020 Honda CR-V Hybrid, that’s a 2.0-liter inline-4, but in the Honda Insight it’s a 1.5-liter inline-4. Specifications for the Fit Hybrid won’t likely be revealed before the show, but some sources have suggested that a 1.0-liter turbo-3 will be used for some of the lineup—with a 1.5-liter inline-4 more likely for the Fit Hybrid.

Honda itself only confirms in a pre-show release that the Fit Hybrid’s two-motor system “will made even more compact than the previous system.”
