The City hybrid offers sufficiently higher fuel economy with a claimed figure of 26.5kmpl. We also discovered first-hand that the electrified powertrain makes for a smoother and more responsive driving experience. The components involved include a 1.5-litre petrol engine, an electric motor, a motor generator, and a small Lithium-ion battery pack of an unspecified capacity. The combined output of the hybrid system stands at 126PS and 253Nm, and the sedan’s gearbox is a gearless e-CVT.

The self-charging hybrid system automatically switches between three modes: pure EV, hybrid, and engine-only. We’ve explained how Honda’s e:HEV system works in more detail here.

Here’s How The Honda e:HEV Hybrid System Works

Honda has introduced ADAS with the City e:HEV, a feature suite collectively called ‘Sensing’. This equips the hybrid sedan with collision mitigation braking, road departure mitigation, lane keep assist, adaptive cruise control, and high-beam assist. The only other feature addition over the regular City ZX is the electronic parking brake.

Inside the cabin, the City hybrid differentiates itself with an ivory and black interior theme and vents on the right side of the rear bench. Apart from the above-mentioned tech, the car has the same set of features as the regular City ZX with goodies like an 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system, 7-inch TFT display in the semi-digital instrument cluster, connected car tech, a sunroof, and six airbags.

By launching the City e:HEV, Honda has taken its first step toward electrifying its Indian line-up. It has no direct rivals in its segment and the closest competition will be the upcoming compact SUVs from Toyota and Maruti Suzuki. The City e:HEV gets a standard warranty of 3-years and unlimited kilometres while the battery is covered by an 8-year/1.6 lakh km warranty.

If you’re looking to put your name down for the hybrid City now, you could be looking at a wait time of up to 6 months. However, this figure could come down based on improvements in the global supply chain situation.
