Using the i-MMD two motor system, we’ve manufactured our first mainstream hybrid SUV, to be sold in Europe, in the shape of the all-new Honda CR-V. Well known for its premium quality, versatility and class-leading spaciousness, this new CR-V – built around an 2.0 litre petrol engine and our unique hybrid powertrain – is all set to take you much further, for a lot less, to the next horizon… and beyond.
A 2.0 litre Atkinson Cycle petrol engine works with two electric motors – one propulsion and one generator motor – controlled by an intelligent Multi-Mode Drive (i-MMD) system providing 3 driving modes: Electric Drive, Hybrid Drive and Engine Drive. Two-wheel drive and all-wheel drive versions are available.
i-MMD (intelligent Multi-Mode Drive) technology delivers exceptional performance alongside outstanding efficiency. Its aerodynamic lines, created around a totally new chassis, make this 5th generation CR-V a real driver's SUV. Once inside you’ll enjoy a luxurious, sophisticated interior displaying the latest in driver aids and infotainment alongside the comfort, space and versatility that CR-V is famous for.
The i-MMD (intelligent Multi Mode Drive) system determines how to use fuel and electrical energy in the most efficient way, which means there’s no requirement for the driver to adjust between the three driving modes; Electric Drive, Hybrid Drive and Engine Drive.
How Hybrid works in Electric Drive
In Electric Drive, the propulsion motor draws its power solely from the batteries, delivering super-quiet and low-emissions driving.
How Hybrid Drive works
In Hybrid Drive, the petrol engine supplies power to the electric generator motor, which in turn delivers power to the electric propulsion motor, so that any excess power from the petrol engine is diverted back through the generator motor to recharge the batteries.
How Hybrid works in Engine Drive
In Engine Drive, the wheels are driven by the petrol engine, with an ‘on-demand’ peak-power ‘boost’ available from the electric motor, ideal when you need to make a quick overtaking manoeuvre.
