Honda has just lifted the veil on their latest hybrid, the first in this class, the Honda Jazz.
The Jazz Hybrid will borrow most of the propulsion bits from the Honda Insight. The main motor is a 87bhp 1.3-liter i-VTEC with a 14bhp electric motor. The battery pack is going to be nickel metal hydride. Hopefully they get better MPG ratings than the insight or Prius.
