It'll be a double dose of the all-new 2022Honda Civic (FE) next year, as e:HEV (hybrid) variants and the Civic Type R model are due to be launched then.
Theoretically, the e:HEV powertrain should be like what's in our Honda City RS' i-MMD system. It's a dual-motor setup, with its electric motor driving the car most of the time.
The petrol engine - a naturally aspirated 1.5-litre four-cylinder in the City RS - only kicks in to drive the generator to provide additional power for the traction motor, or drive the wheels directly during high-speed cruising.
With humble beginnings collecting diecast models and spending hours virtually tuning dream cars on the computer, his love of cars has delightfully transformed into a career. Sanjay enjoys how the same passion for cars transcends boundaries and brings people together.
