Rumour: Honda to launch mass-market hybrid by 2021


According to a media report, Honda is planning to launch a mass-market hybrid in India by 2021. The car is expected to be more affordable than the Accord Hybrid, which costs more than Rs. 43 lakh in India.

While the carmaker hasn't provided any more information about the "more affordable" hybrid model, reports suggest that it could be based on one of its high-volume models. It is said that Honda is already working on the next-generation Jazz and City. These models will reportedly have hybrid powertrain options and could be the likely candidates for India.

Honda has confirmed that it plans to introduce 6 new models in India by 2021. These include the recently launched second-generation Amaze and the new CR-V. The carmaker is likely to launch the new Civic by the end of this fiscal. The mass-market hybrid model is among the 3 other cars destined for India.
