Some days ago Sling confirmed to us that he will present the new generation of his popular HR-V the next February 18, 2021, but it was not until today that we have seen a handful of new images of the interior, which will receive a floating screen for the infotainment system with two air vents on both sides.
The trailer also shows a iPhone and Apple CarPlay without cables, which suggests that it will probably be one of the items that are part of the standard equipment. You can also see the physical controls for the climate control, the panoramic sunroof and one of the stereo tweeter.
Although we know little or nothing about the future model despite its imminent arrival, Honda has confirmed that one of the novelties of this compact SUV is the incorporation of the advanced hybrid drive technology e: HEV twin engine -generator and impeller-.
In the words of the brand, it is an innovative hybrid configuration that combines high efficiency with fun and refined driving. The new HR-V is a further example of Honda’s commitment to deliver on its “Electric Vision”, a strategy that, in Europe, contemplates the electrification of its main models in 2022.
In Europe, it will be sold exclusively in this e: HEV format and gossip is pointing to the same hybrid powertrain as the CR-V. If so, it will have a 2.0-liter i-VTEC gasoline engine that will operate together with two electric motors to deliver 184 hp power combined with a single fixed gear transmission.
