Rumor has it that the brand new hot hatch will be equipped with a hybrid powertrain consisting of a 2.0-liter turbo engine and a set of two electric motors on the rear axle. This information has not been officially confirmed. Moreover, according to Honda Europe, the final decision on the powertrain has not yet been made.

The reason is the current front-wheel drive model, which popularity was provided by a 2.0-liter 320-hp VTEC Turbo engine. In all likelihood, it will also be used in the new hot hatch, but as part of a hybrid system with all-wheel drive transmission.
