Electrification seems like the next big thing for the automotive industry, with environmentalists eagerly championing the cause to reduce carbon footprint on a global scale. While some countries have gone as far as to ban vehicles powered by conventional internal combustion engines, many more have yet to join the fray.

For us, the process seems to be taking its time, but hey, better late than never, right? To that effect, Honda Malaysia is the first to bring the cost of entry to electrified motoring below the RM90k mark. The uptake seems great, with over 1,200 bookings made for the City and Jazz Hybrid duo (as of October 2, 2017), but the challenge is not over just yet.

The video above, featuring Dennis Yin, addresses some of the basic concerns when it comes to owning a Honda hybrid. This covers the aspects of performance, fuel efficiency, maintenance costs and some of the perks of Honda’s i-DCD system. To recap, the system combines a 1.5 litre engine and an electric motor to deliver 137 PS and 170 Nm of torque, with drive being sent to the front wheels through a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission.
