Honda begins sales of SHUTTLE compact wagon and hybrid in Japan

Honda Motor Co., Ltd. has begun sales of the all-new Honda SHUTTLE compact wagon and hybrid at dealerships across Japan. The gasoline-powered version of SHUTTLE is equipped with a 1.5-liter direct-injection DOHC i-VTEC engine and CVT, while the hybrid version is equipped with the SPORT HYBRID i-DCD. The hybrid version realizes top-in-class level fuel economy of 34.0 km/liter (80 mpg US, 2.9 l/100 km) (JC08 mode).


The SPORT HYBRID i-DCD combines a 1.5L Atkinson cycle DOHC i-VTEC engine, 7-speed DCT system with a built-in high-output motor and an IPU (intelligent power unit) that unifies a lithium-ion battery and power drive unit.

For the first time with any station wagon in the 5-number size available in the market, the all-new SHUTTLE has a 4WD option.
