The compact crossover has long been one of the vehicle segments that has led the way when it comes to powertrain innovations, and Honda is ensuring that this tradition continues by developing a brand new CR-V Hybrid prototype vehicle.
The new CR-V Hybrid stands out from the crowd thanks to the fact that it blends a four-cylinder cycle engine with a generator motor, which allows the driver to choose between traditional gasoline driving, electric driving or e-boosted driving, which offers the best of both worlds.
While this vehicle is very much a concept, it is set to hit the European market in the near future, at which point it will be offered in turbocharged manual and CVT variants. By offering a variety of power options in one package, this compact crossover will appeal to people who want an eco-friendly driving option with the option of gasoline-powered driving as needed.
