"GREENING" in the automobile-motorcycle manufacturing industry is stronger than ever.


   Air pollution and climate change are silently spreading disaster to people. From the fact that many automobile and motorbike manufacturers have made positive moves to contribute to improving the living environment from the engine and technical improvements applied in new car lines.

   During operation, vehicles discharge large amounts of substances such as dust, CO, NOx, SOx, gasoline vapor, lead dust, benzene, etc. into the atmosphere. Faced with the risk of pollution, the Governments of major auto markets such as the UK, France, China... have all planned to ban the sale of petrol-powered cars. Along with that, many governments have implemented preferential policies for green and hybrid cars to encourage consumers and limit CO2 emissions from vehicle traffic into the air.


   In developed countries, preferential tax policy is one of the important tools in stimulating consumption demand for "green cars", and this is considered as a source of encouragement for leading automobile manufacturers. invest, design and manufacture modern, high-performance, fuel-efficient product models. Thereby, indirectly contributing to the protection of limited fossil resources, which are becoming increasingly scarce.


   Faced with a rather drastic move from the governments of other countries, many car manufacturers have constantly innovated technology to bring to the market fuel-efficient, emission-reducing, and environmentally-friendly vehicles.


   The world currently recognizes 4 types of green vehicles including: Electric Vehicle (Electric Vehicle); Hybrid Electric Vehicle (Hybrid Electric Vehicle); Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle and Fuel cell vehicle.


   In particular, "hybrid" or hybrid vehicle technology is in the list of 20 important technologies to reduce CO2 emissions by 2050, and is considered highly practical when applied in consumer life. use countries. Thanks to the combination of internal combustion energy and electricity, Hybrid cars save about 20% - 30% of fuel compared to petrol and diesel cars of the same line.


   As the world's leading manufacturer of automobiles and motorcycles with tens of millions of vehicles delivered to customers every year, Honda is aware of its great responsibility and obligation in bringing products that are not only high quality, but also meet the inevitable development trends of the future to become a pioneer brand that is reliable and widely preferred by customers.At the 2017 Tokyo Motor Show, Honda also introduced Hybrid technology for the first time - a combination of a gasoline engine and an auxiliary motorcycle, demonstrating the company's efforts in bringing customers the best products. products that meet the development trend of the future.

   

   In the Vietnamese market, on August 20, Honda also officially introduced a new model PCX Hybrid – This is the first 2-wheel motorcycle model applying Hybrid technology, contributing to increasing choices for customers. products in the popular segment.
According to evaluation, the Hybrid system of Honda's PCX this time is aimed at simultaneously satisfying both the factors of "quick response according to the throttle with high performance" and "increasing the user friendliness". use".

 

   The system includes a 150cc gasoline engine providing main power and a supporting motor that acts as a booster for the gasoline engine. When the car is turned on the throttle to switch from a stationary state to a motion or when the throttle is suddenly twisted, the support motor will be activated, producing torque to support the gasoline engine, helping the car accelerate strongly. more powerful and more fuel-efficient.


   Compared to the torque of the PCX 150cc gasoline engine, the torque of the PCX Hybrid has been significantly improved (increased 26% at 4000 rpm), the engine will respond almost immediately according the change of the throttle, helping the car accelerate strongly in the low and medium speed range.


   In addition, the temporary shutdown time of the engine is reduced from 03 seconds to 0.5 seconds, all helping to reduce fuel consumption by ~ 2% compared to the PCX 150cc gasoline engine.


   In addition, PCX Hybrid also owns a new feature for the first time appearing on a domestically produced model, which is a driving mode with different options according to needs and preferences, including: D, S, Idling . D mode gives a comfortable driving feeling. S mode boosts additional energy from D mode to increase sportiness in performance. Idling mode will interrupt the operation of Idling Stop but the feeling of driving is still as comfortable as in D mode.


   The overall design of the Honda PCX Hybrid is not too different from the petrol engine version. The difference lies in the blue paint color, the blue stripe on the reflector and the Hybrid logo on the body; The saddle uses blue stitching to match the paint color. Therefore, customers will be completely assured and comfortable when using.


   When consumers tend to look for "green" products and governments around the world take actions to encourage businesses to come up with environmentally-friendly solutions, the Honda PCX Hybrid is the answer to these two requirements. upper bridge. Hybrid engines demonstrate efforts and pioneering stepsleading the trend of "greening" in Honda's automobile and motorcycle manufacturing industry.
