Paris Preview: Honda to reveal new hybrid hatchback

The new low cost dedicated hybrid that we've been seeing spy shots of in tested is expected to get its world debut at the Paris Motor show in October. The five door hatchback draws much of its styling from the FCX Clarity fuel cell car, but scaled down to Prius dimensions. Honda has claimed that it will halve the the cost of its IMA hybrid system allowing a price of as low as $18,500 for the new car. The car which like the Prius will only be available as a hybrid will also get a name when it rolls out onto the Paris stage. Over the next couple of years, it will be joined by a second hybrid only model, a coupe based on the CR-Z concept as well as a hybrid version of the Fit.
