Hybrid CR-V prototype leads Honda charge in Frankfurt

HONDA is to display a prototype of its new CR-V at the Frankfurt Motor Show, complete with a hybrid powertrain.

This is also the redesigned CR-V's European motor show debut.

It will be Honda's first hybrid SUV to go on sale in Europe and is due to arrive next year as CR-V production moves from Swindon in the United Kingdom to Canada.

The new CR-V is wider, taller and longer than the previous version.

The A-pillars (windscreen pillars) are thinner, wheel arches wider, and both wheels and tyres increased in size.

Commissioner Rob Manfred will be tasked with the Yankees' original complaint as well as Boston's counter-complaint. For their part, the Red Sox didn't put up much of a fight when they were confronted with the video evidence.

While we wait for confirmation as to whether or not a diesel model will be retained for the Irish market (and talks have been had as to making just such a special case for Ireland) it seems that, in Europe at least, the CR-V is the first major model range to ditch diesel altogether. Honda says its method "creates a direct connection between moving components, enabling a smooth transfer of torque within the system", but hasn't provided any more detail about how it works. Features Honda SR-V not disclosed, but it is known that in hybrid Honda Accord sedan with the i-MMD, the total capacity is 214 HP and fuel consumption to 4.9 l/100 km in the combined cycle. Both the bonnet and rear flanks gain sharper contours, and the nose reflects the brand's latest family styling with bespoke headlamp signatures. EV Drive - the movement of electric and Engine Drive main role is played by the gasoline engine. In EV Drive, the electric propulsion motor draws its power exclusively from the batteries, delivering zero-emissions driving.

EV Drive delivers zero-emissions by using purely electricity to power the vehicle.

There are three driving modes: an all-electric function for the city, a hybrid setting tailored for low-speed urban driving, and pure petrol engine power for the highway.

Described as a "prototype", the auto debuting at the show previews a production model that is due on sale in 2018 and expected to signal the expansion of electric drivetrains across the brand's range.
