2023 Honda CR-V confirmed with hybrid, PHEV options

Continuing with the slew of Honda news, the Japanese carmaker has introduced it will present the upcoming CR-V in Europe in hybrid and – for the to start with time – plug-in hybrid variants. The sixth generation of the company’s stalwart spouse and children SUV will go on sale in the continent in 2023, with a world wide debut rumoured to be coming as early as the conclude of this 12 months.

No details accompanied the confirmation, but we do know really a little bit about the car currently – even what it will seem like. Which is for the reason that a patent 3D render surfaced on Facebook previous month, demonstrating a design and style closely motivated by the most up-to-date HR-V.

Visible cues incorporate the slender headlights, a big hexagonal grille, L-shaped front bumper corners, a straightforward shoulder crease, vertical taillights and a a little considerably less upswept window line.

The present Honda CR-V is already provided as a PHEV in China

We also know that the CR-V will most likely keep the present 1.5 litre VTEC Turbo engine (perhaps with even greater outputs than the current model‘s 193 PS and 243 Nm of torque) mated to a CVT, furthermore a e:HEV hybrid product that need to mirror the Civic in terms of powertrain. If you don’t forget, that vehicle tends to make 184 PS and 315 Nm, juiced by a immediate-injected version of the Accord Hybrid‘s 2. litre Atkinson-cycle mill.

The plug-in hybrid is the little bit that is new below, though an e:PHEV variation of the recent CR-V went on sale in China beginning in 2020. That vehicle paired the Accord Hybrid’s powertrain with a considerably greater 17 kWh lithium-ion battery, furnishing an all-electric powered range of 85 km (65 km on the WLTP cycle).

This will let the CR-V to compete directly with the Toyota RAV4 Plug-in Hybrid in Europe, while its rival has a much better full procedure output of 306 PS, enabling it to get from zero to 100 km/h in just six seconds.
