Honda recently announced yet another game-changing technology upgrade: adding a two-motor hybrid system–being called the Sport Hybrid i-MMD powertrain–to its larger vehicles, starting with the Odyssey minivan found on Japanese market
This will not only increase the power of the already large vehicles, but also the two-motor hybrid system will seriously improve vehicles’ fuel economy, which is typically a weak point for large models on the automotive market.
The brilliant engineers at Honda were able to make the two-motor hybrid system work for the Odyssey by cutting down on the size and weight of some of the heftier components, such as the battery.
It’s unclear when the Honda Sport Hybrid i-MMD powertrain will find its way into American vehicles, but it’s safe to assume that it’s on its way, particularly for Honda minivans and other vehicles similar in size.
