As anticipated, Honda is bringing back the Civic Hybrid, following its discontinuation after the ninth-generation production. The hybrid model had been succeeded by the Insight Hybrid but with the discontinuation of the Insight, Honda has decided to revive the Civic Hybrid for the 2025 model year.
While specific information about the upcoming Civic Hybrid is limited, Honda has confirmed that it will be offered in both sedan and hatchback versions. Production will commence at Honda’s facility in Alliston, Ontario in 2024, with the hatchback variant manufactured at the company’s Indiana factory.
Honda’s decision to reintroduce a hybrid to the Civic lineup aligns with the emphasis on electrification within the brand. Given the success of the hybrid variant in their Accord lineup and the growing demand for electrified and electric vehicles, leveraging the popularity of one of Honda’s flagship models is a logical move.
According to Honda, the Civic Hybrid will feature the 2.0-liter Atkinson inline-four engine and the two-motor hybrid system. While it remains unclear if the tuning will differ from its predecessor, it is worth noting that the CR-V Hybrid, which employs the same engine and hybrid system, delivers 204 hp to the wheels.
As the release date of the Civic Hybrid approaches, further details will be disclosed, providing a comprehensive overview of the anticipated hybrid model.
