2013 Honda Jazz Petrol Start-Up and Full Vehicle Tour
Hello everyone! Following the 2013 Accord video, I have a video on the 2013
Jazz Petrol. A little history/timeline can be found in the video as I
detail the journey of the second generation Honda Jazz in Malaysia.
Anyways, I have decided to stick the Jazz Petrol name in the title instead
of simply Jazz 1.5 so viewers would not ask me whether is this the Hybrid
model or not. Enjoy!

2014 Honda Accord Hybrid - First Drive
The 2014 Accord Hybrid and its full hybrid technology innovates beyond the
class-leading Toyota Camry Hybrid by enough of a margin that mainstream
media have written things like Honda is aiming to dethrone the Prius.

interior ripped out, sound deadening, rear seats, seat belt, etc.
Next time I'm doing this with R-Compound Tires, listen closely to my tires

2014 Honda Accord Hybrid Review and Road Test
As of October, the most fuel efficient mid-sized sedan in America is the
Honda Accord. Or so Honda says. After all, Ford has been trumpeting a
matching 47 MPG combined from their Fusion. Who is right? And more
importantly, can the Accord get Honda back into the hybrid game after
having lost the first initial hybrid battles with their maligned Integrated
Motor Assist system? Honda invited us to sample the 2014 Accord Hybrid as
well as a smorgasbord of competitive products to find out.
I have always been a fan of "elegant and restrained" styling which explains
my love for the first generation Lexus LS. That describes the 2014 Accord
to a tee. Like the regular Accord, the hybrid is devoid of sharp creases,
dramatic swooshes, edgy grilles or anything controversial. This is a
slightly different take than the Accord Plug-in which swaps the standard
Accord bumper for a bumper with a slightly awkward gaping maw. In fact, the
only thing to indicate that something green this way someday are some
grille inserts and LED headlamps on the top-level Touring model.
Being the drivetrain geek that I am, what's under the hood of the Accord
hybrid is more exciting than the Corvette Stingray. Seriously. Why? Because
this car doesn't have a transmission in the traditional sense. Say what?
Let's start at the beginning.
Things start out with the same 2.0L four-cylinder engine used in the Accord
plug-in. The small engine is 10% more efficient than Honda's "normal" 2.0L
engine thanks to a modified Atkinson cycle, an electric water pump, cooled
Exhaust gas return system, and
electric valve timing with a variable cam profile. The engine produces 141
horsepower on its
own at 6,200 RPM and, thanks to the fancy valvetrain, 122 lb-ft from
The engine is connected directly to a motor/generator that is capable of
generating approximately 141 horsepower. (Honda won't
release specific details on certain drivetrain internals so that's an
educated guess.) Next we have a 166 horsepower, 226 lb-ft motor
that is connected to the front wheels via a fixed gear ratio. Under 44
miles per hour, this is all you need to know about the system. The 166 horsepower motor
powers the car alone, drawing power from either a 1.3 kWh lithium-ion
battery pack, or the first motor/generator. Over 44 miles per hour, the
system chooses one of two mods depending on what is most efficient at the
time. The system can engage a clutch pack to directly connect the two
motor/generator units together allowing engine power to flow directly to
the wheels via that fixed gear ratio.
Pay careful attention to that. I said fixed gear ratio. When the Accord
Hybrid engages the clutch to allow the engine to power the wheels directly
(mechanically), power is flowing via a single fixed ratio gear set. The
fixed gear improves efficiency at highway speeds, reduces weight vs a
multi-speed unit and is the reason the system must operate in serial hybrid
mode below 44 mph. There is another side effect at play here as well: below
44 MPH, the system's maximum power output is 166 horsepower. The 196 combined
ponies don't start prancing until that clutch engages.
So why does Honda call it an eCVT? Because that fits on a sales sheet
bullet point and the full explanation doesn't. Also, a serial hybrid can be
thought of as a CVT because there is an infinite and non-linear
relationship between the engine input and the motor output in the
