Honda unveils world\'s most fuel-efficient HV
[6th Sep, 2013]
Officials at Honda Motor have unveiled what they\'re calling the world\'s most fuel-efficient hybrid vehicle.
The new Fit compact car can travel more than 36 kilometers on a single liter of gasoline. That\'s a 35-percent improvement from the previous version.
Officials say the Fit gets the best gas mileage of any hybrid in the world, beating out Toyota\'s Aqua model.
Honda engineers boosted the car\'s fuel efficiency with a system that can automatically link and un-link the electric motor and the gasoline engine, switching among 3 different drive modes.
The EV Drive uses the electric motor only, the Engine Drive uses the gasoline engine only and the Hybrid Drive uses both the motor and gasoline engine.
