No hybrid five door coming to the US

Honda has announced that it intends to bring new hybrid versions of its Fit subcompact car to the United States. The car will be the third generation of the Fit hatchback, which is one of the best-selling cars globally for Honda. The automaker says that the third-generation of the Fit will be available in the US by next summer.

The cars will be available in Japan this September. The version of the car destined for the US will be manufactured in North America. Honda doesn't plan to offer a hybrid version of the standard five-door Fit in the US.

However, US buyers are expected to get versions of the sedan and crossover with hybrid technology. The new hybrid system is called the Sport Hybrid Intelligent-Dual Clutch Drive.

Nov 4 2014 3:02pm CST | Source: Driving Canada

Hidden away in a rural part of Vancouver Island, one of the world’s best automotive restorers brings million-dollar beauties back to life. VICTORIA, B.C. — “…and cheap too, at $1.3-million.” The relative insanity of this half-overheard statement doesn’t actually penetrate my brain. I am stunned, floored, gob-smacked by what I am seeing. Two, no, three Ferrari Daytonas. A pair of D-Type Jaguars, one wearing Ecurie Ecosse racing livery. Seve ...
