Honda has launched a Jazz hybrid at the Paris motor show.
It will have CO2 emissions of 104g/km and combined economy of 64.2mpg, the company has revealed.
The Jazz hybrid, shown ahead of its Paris motor show debut later this week, will reach UK showrooms early next year.
It will share many of its components with the Insight, including that car’s 1.3-litre petrol engine-based hybrid powertrain.
The engine/electric motor mix is mated to a CVT gearbox and, like the Insight, the Jazz will be able to run on electric power alone in low-speed conditions.
The new model gets a few visual cues to make it stand out from regular Jazz variants, including revised headlights with a blue surround, clear tail-lights, a new front grille, different bumpers and flashes of chrome on the rear hatch.
The interior gets a single-colour dashboard and blue-lit dials and instruments. Leather trim will also be offered for the first time on a Jazz in Europe.
And despite the addition of a battery pack and IMA control unit under the boot floor, boot space is unchanged at 300 litres or 831 litres with the 'Magic Seats' folded flat.
The Jazz hybrid's CO2 figure is 21g/km lower than the current lowest-emitting 1.2 petrol Jazz, while economy is 23 per cent better than the best-selling 1.4 ES model.
It will be exempt from road tax in its first year and will cost £20 per year to tax thereafter; as a hybrid, it will also be exempt from London's congestion charge zone.
Full UK pricing and specification is yet to be revealed.
