Obviously, European market is not the first to welcome the hybrid SUV of Honda as China has already started to sell it for nearly half a year. The European-mode 2018 Honda CR-V Hybrid will be equipped with the company's Intelligent Multi-Mode Drive (i-MMD) system like the Honda Accord Hybrid, which is armed with two electric motors and a 2.0L i-VTEC Atkinson-cycle petrol mill.

Driving modes comes available with 3 options, including EV Drive, Engine Drive and Hybrid Drive.
