www.autofun.co.th—The 6th generation Honda CR-V(รถ Honda ราคา) was officially launched in the US in July and will be available in the US with a 1.5-litre turbocharged engine and a 2.0-litre Sport Hybrid hybrid powertrain. Now the third power unit, the Plug-in Hybrid, has been officially revealed in China. The new CR-V e:PHEV can be seen in Dongfeng Honda’s filing.
The all-new CR-V e:PHEV can be seen in Dongfeng Honda’s declaration.
In terms of appearance, the CR-V e:PHEV continues the design of the US model, resembling a Ridgeline cargo truck, with a more rugged and powerful look. The slightly narrower headlamps make a distinctive visual impression. Compared to its predecessor, the size of the vehicle has been slightly enlarged. Although the changes are minor, they are enough to make the 6th generation CR-V the largest of its kind.
The CR-V e:PHEV is distinguished from the other versions by the blue Honda badge on the front and rear and the e:PHEV on the rear.
The e:PHEV at the rear is the most distinctive feature of the CR-V e:PHEV from the other versions.
In terms of power, the new CR-V e:PHEV is powered by a 2.0-litre natural-intake engine with a maximum output of 110kW (150 hp), codenamed LFB16, compared to the current CR-V Elite Hybrid e+. This is a slight increase in power of around 4 hp compared to the code LFB13 used in the current CR-V Elite Hybrid e+. The motor is a single front axle motor system with a maximum power of 135kW (approx. 184 hp), paired with a ternary lithium-ion battery pack from CATL and an ECVT gearbox.
The CR-V e:PHEV continues the design of the US model, with a slightly larger body compared to its predecessor. Although the changes are minor, they are sufficient to make the 6th generation CR-V the largest of its kind.
According to the declaration, the combined fuel consumption of the CR-V e:PHEV is 1.61L/100km and 1.75L/100km (62.1km/L and 57.1km/L) respectively, which is clearly better than the current model, but it is not yet possible to confirm whether this is due to the increased battery capacity or other technical updates, pending further official announcements.
Dongfeng Honda expects to launch the 6th generation CR-V 1.5-litre turbodiesel in China by the end of September, although the petrol-electric and e:PHEV versions may be a little later. Domestically, Honda Taiwan expects to launch the 6th generation CR-V in China in the second half of 2023.
