Honda has launched the new, 11th-generation Civic in Europe as a hybrid, calling it the Civic e:HEV that goes on sale later this year.
Cant tell how this stacks up to the corolla hybrid. I'm assuming this is more of the same like the CRV hybrid which doesnt do honda any favors.The new Civic hybrid pairs a newly developed 2.0-liter Atkinson-cycle engine with two compact electric motors. The combined output is 181 horsepower (135 kilowatts) and 232 pound-feet (315 Newton-meters) of torque. The Civic also carries the company's new 72-cell lithium-ion battery pack. Honda says that the improvements it made to the engine help the car achieve "one of the highest" thermal efficiency figures for a production car.
