Looks apart, I hope the car brings good fortune to Honda's lazy behind. Instead of going fully electric I welcome this hybrid move too. Hopefully the hybrid system doesn't spring too many expensive issues.

On a related note, with this car and sedans from VW group the segment suddenly feels alive.
I'm getting one delivered next week and want to do exactly that !
Any recommendations on where i can get this wrapping done well in Bangalore.

For that matter, recommendations on someone who would be able to get the full RS kit and install it professionally ?

My cousin just got his Hybrid delivered. He initially planned for petrol ZX CVT but was blown away by the hybrid. He canít stop raving about it all the time
Canít wait to drive it!

Honda Cars India has begun deliveries of the City Hybrid.

Hi friends. I have booked the Hybrid yesterday and have been told the waiting period is 7 months. I wanted to book the Silver or red but am told by the dealer Crystal Honda that Honda was manufacturing only White, Golden Brown and Grey. While I have asked for the grey, the website through which I have made the booking allowed me to select either colour. This is like Ford saying you can have any colour as long as it is black. Did anyone else face this?

7 months waiting period. Seriously? Is it the demand or the lack of supplies of chips and other electronic components?

I am told its due to chip shortage. Hope Honda doesnt increase the price further as 23 L itself is a stretch. The premium over CVT should have been max 3 L ideally or they should have launched a ZX and ZX (O)

Hi friends,
I am a proud owner of Honda City e:HEV from Bangalore. I pre-booked the car in April and received it on May 22nd. I did some sacrifice on the color as Silver was my preferred one but Brigade Honda promised an early delivery if I opt for white.
About the drive and feel, I can say that I am thoroughly enjoying it. Completed just 200 km within city but the drive is just amazing especially the handling and initial thrust from 250 Nm torque.
I will post more updates as I keep revving more. Thanks.

Congrats on your purchase and looking forward for more details. I know you are enjoying the 250 Nm torque , but while you share your experience, it would be good if you can cover a bit on the "econ mode" driving experience as well since it has not been touched in detail in many reviews.

Hearty congratulations!!!

Even I have pre-booked the Hybrid in April, but I have opted for the Red colour. Spoke with the SA just now and he has no clue when the Red cars would be available. He said he has White, Golden Brown and Grey available.
It is weird that Honda is promoting the Hybrid in Red and the dealer doesn't have any clue when the Red cars would be available for delivery.

Yes that is what my SA informed me as well. Waiting period is 7 months for any colour

Congratulations on your purchase Greenville. Considering the steep premium charged by Honda for the hybrid, it doesn't make economic sense for most of us. Kindly share your average monthly mileage. For the average Joe doing about 10000 kms - 12000 kms per year translates to 6+ years to break even!

Hi friends,

I have not had a chance to drive far, but the Bangalore city drive is happening every day. Also had a 34 km one-way trip beyond electronic city during the weekend while facing heavy traffic. The elevated expressway was the only place I could exceed 50 km per hour, and the remainder was a 20-30kmph ride. Although I couldn't do tank-to-tank calculations, the trip meter reading was excellent.

I also had a chance to test the Honda sensing on the expressway, especially adaptive cruise control and lane-keep assistance. There I realized what exactly a 250 Nm torque means

I had a speed limit set at 82 kmph but had to apply the brakes to 20 kmph. I moved to a clear lane and resumed ACC, which was defined at 82. For a moment, I felt like I was on an amusement park ride! The car dashed off and the entire torque was used to reach that speed.

Attached pictures are the trip meter readings of three different journeys, all bangalore city drives.

Thats amazing!
Please do keep posting your experiences here. We can only sit back and enjoy reading right now.
The mileage looks good. Please do test tank full to tank full and post it here as well.
