Efficient Electric Regenerative Braking: The new City e:HEV comes with advanced Electric Servo Brake technology which in conjunction with the hydraulic brakes helps the City to come to halt efficiently using self-charging its Li-ion battery packs, in return juicing up the batteries.

Powertrain: At the heart of the new City sits a 1.5-litre Atkinson-Cycle DOHC i-VTEC petrol engine. While the engine alone produces 98 PS and 127 Nm of torque, it is assisted by an electric motor and the combined system output from this powertrain stands much higher at 126 PS which is backed up by torque of 253 Nm. This engine comes mated to an e-CVT unit which is basically an electrically coupled version of CVT.

Price: Honda's latest City e:HEV has been priced at 19.49 lakh (ex-showroom). While at this price it might appear to be on the higher side of the price chart, not to forget, it comes kitted to the teeth with several segment-leading safety features, making it the most technically advanced car in the class.
