A development mule for the new dedicated hybrid that Honda is due to release in 2009 has been spotted in the wild. The body of the test vehicle is built up from a Honda Airwave with the front of a Fit grafted on. The Airwave is a Japanese market wagon, but the prototype features a left hand drive interior in place of the usual JDM right hand drive setup. The new Global Small Hybrid, as it's been dubbed, is expected to have an all-new hybrid power-train to replace the current mild hybrid IMA system. Sales targets for the new car are 200,000 a year, with half of those going to the US market.
