Still carrying high-tech elements and futuristic abstract style designs.

If you look closely, some details change. For example, DRL luminescence that forms a triangular corner at the end. Then the line is made to blend with the chrome bars on the grille. The shape of the grille has changed slightly. Still characterizes the Tiger Nose, but the pattern inside is a mesh shape. Plus a silver frame on the edge similar to a Sonet. The Sonet's design has influenced the Seltos changes quite a bit. For example, a U-shaped silver skid plate that frames the front air dam.

The other most obvious is the hood. The end does not reach the facade area. Instead, it leaves an area filled with the latest Kia logo. Then the curve of the side line is also made more assertive. So that it looks more integrated with the front and rear lights. The line of the shoulders up remains the same. Characteristic of the chrome accents on the D pillar as a liaison with the roof line. Then the shape of the taillights changed almost completely. Now fully expanded with star-map graphics. The new 18-inch rim design, which is similar to that of the Hyundai Ioniq 5 Prime type, completes the new look of the

The interior has undergone no less changes. Two monitors still in one big panel. But now it is made similar to the Sportage dashboard. It measures 10.25-inches for the instrument cluster and 10.25-inches also for infotainment. The center console area is also all-new. Especially the loss of the transmission lever to change the knob as a transmission regulator. The addition is also ambient lighting such as Sonet. Can be set at will or adjust the rhythm of the music.

Kia has yet to release technical specifications. The possibility is still the same as the previous model. The 1.5-liter naturally aspirated petrol option is still available with 115 PS plus 144 Nm of torque. The 1.4-liter turbo unit makes 140 PS and 242 Nm of torque. And a 1.4-liter diesel 115 PS and 250 Nm. Both are also available in the Indonesian market.

It is hoped that there will be new features in the safety device. For example ADAS-based active systems and other connectivity additions. All has not been revealed until the inaugural launch which is scheduled for July 15 next. Appeared at the Busan Motor Show to be marketed first to the South Korean area, then spread to other markets.

Norton Motorcycles Begins to Evolve into Electric Motorcycles

 Norton Motorcycles is a motorcycle company known for its heritage. But in its new form, the British brand is poised to join the electric vehicle revolution. It is ready to start this project within the next 30 months to develop a battery-powered iron horse that lives up to the Norton name.

Norton Motorcycles Begins to Evolve into Electric Motorcycles

Under the ownership of the Indian manufacturing giant since 2020, following the collapse of the previous Norton iteration under Stuart Garner, Norton's finances are now more stable. That is already reflected in the opening of a new manufacturing facility in Solihull, UK and the release of several products. Among these are the reengineered V4SV superbike and the V4CR café racer. The Atlas model was originally developed during the Garner era but was delayed by the company's collapse and restructuring.

On June 17, 2022, Norton Motorcycles finally made a big announcement. His party made a big plan with the name 'Project Zero Emission Norton'. This is a completely new Norton project under TVS ownership.

The company has also received funding from the Advanced Propulsion Center (APC) 19 initiative, a government organization that aims to accelerate the adoption of zero-emission transportation technologies. APC 19 will distribute £25m to the UK auto sector, or up to 50 per cent of the investment made by entrants. But so far Norton has not made any announcements regarding spending or how much APC-19 is giving away.

“This significant funding investment is an important milestone, as it marks the beginning of the electrification journey and fulfills our ten-year product plan. Norton is an example of modern luxury and is not afraid to challenge the status quo, innovating for the future of mobility while staying true to our British heritage. It also focuses on our desire to support the UK in its mission for a clean automotive future,” said Robert Hentschel, CEO of Norton.

Meanwhile Ian Constance, Chief Executive of APC said Norton is an iconic British brand with a proud history. From making motorcycles, supporting British efforts during the second world war, to developing the world's first production superbike. “They are now looking to the future with electric motorcycles that can deliver both performance and range. It also has a positive impact on UK manufacturing and a greener environment.”

In its development, Norton did not do it alone. He has formed partnerships with several companies. Among them is Delta Cosworth, an electric powertrain specialist owned by the legendary company Cosworth. Headquartered at Silverstone and ready to develop Norton battery packs.

Then HiSpeed Ltd, an engineering firm based in Bicester to develop electric drive units, and is responsible for creating new motors for Norton. Formaplex Technologies, which specializes in carbon fiber and composites. M&I Materials, a specialist materials manufacturer based in Manchester who helped create cooling systems using MIVOLT dielectric fluid that can immerse electrical components.

Then INDRA, a company that develops and manufactures chargers. As well as the Warwick Manufacturing Group at the University of Warwick, a collaboration between academia and industry that has also assisted Triumph with its TE-1 electric bicycle project.

“Working with world-class partners, we are confident that Norton's Zero Emission project will eliminate the current dispute between conventional and electric motorcycles. We wanted to create an EV product that drivers want by blending Norton's design DNA without compromise with racing performance, touring range and lightweight handling," said Robert.

According to Andrew McGordon, Reader, Energy Applications Group at WMG, University of Warwick, this project can produce extraordinary products. “WMG is excited to be a partner on this project that exploits our research in battery and systems modeling to develop zero-prototype modeling and validation methodologies, including predictive intelligence, charging and Vehicle to Grid technologies. We will bring extensive electrification experience to this project after working in many sectors,” he said.

A 30-month timescale means the project will be completed by the end of 2024. Norton expects the project to produce the motorcycle that many riders around the world want. In addition, these jobs are expected to create many jobs in UK manufacturing and R&D.

Apart from Norton, Triumph and Ducati are also on their way to developing their own electric motorcycles, not to mention the ongoing efforts of BMW and some secret projects from the Japanese motorcycle industry. In the next few years we can certainly see a revolution in the performance of electric vehicles and their ability to compete with conventional gasoline powered engines.

AHM Releases New Adventurer Scooter Teaser, Is This All New Honda ADV 160?

 PT Astra Honda Motor (AHM) surprised by spreading a new product teaser image on its official Instagram account Monday (20/6). A strategy that Honda rarely uses when preparing a new motorcycle for consumers.

there will be something exciting in June you know! Gather here, Admin Honda spill the first clue first," wrote Honda in the Instagram caption column.

AHM Releases New Adventurer Scooter Teaser, Is This All New Honda ADV 160?

From the silhouette of the image shown, it is certain that this is an automatic motorcycle adventure. The headlights have similarities to the Honda ADV 150 which was launched at the 2019 Gaikindo Indonesia International Auto Show (GIIAS).

Then it is also seen that there is a windscreen component that is large enough to be present on the front cover of the body. While the pull of the side body lines also have similarities with the ADV 150. So is it possible that the all new ADV 160 will be hatched by AHM?

We tried to confirm this to the General Manager of Corporate Communication of AHM, Ahmad Muhibbuddin. Although he does not want to talk about what products will be launched, he ensures that the new motorbike from Honda will be a surprise for Indonesian consumers.

"We'll see later, whether it's the correct model (Honda ADV 160) or there is another surprise from AHM. Wait and be patient, OK," said Muhib, his best friend.

The Right Time to Launch Honda ADV 160

The reason is because 2 of his brothers, the Honda PCX and Vario, have been refreshed with a 160 cc heart pacemaker configured with 4 valves. ADV which is also built from a similar engine design and construction is very likely to use the more powerful engine. 

Moreover, looking at the life cycle of a vehicle product, the ADV 150 is now 4 years old. Generally, the producers carried out a massive refresh strategy at that moment, this was also done on the PCX and Vario.

If you really carry a similar engine, it means that the all new ADV will be packed with a 4-Valve, ESP + engine with PGM-FI (Programmed Fuel Injection) fuel. Meanwhile, the diameter x step is 60 mm x 55.5 mm.

When referring to the performance of the Honda PCX 160, the maximum power can explode up to 15.8 horsepower at 8,500 rpm. Then the maximum torque of 14.7 Nm at 6500 rpm. This scooter uses a centrifugal dry clutch and CVT type distribution.

Predictions in addition to packing a new engine, the new Honda ADV will also have a design change to make it look more fierce. Then there is the opportunity that the ADV 160 is equipped with a big motor feature (MOGE) on the PCX 160, namely the HSTC (Honda Selectable Torque Control). This device is an active safety feature of traction control which will keep the rear tire spinning so that no slip (freewheel) occurs.

Or Maybe Honda ADV 250?

If it's not the Honda ADV 160, maybe AHM will bring in a new automatic option in the 250 cc class with the Honda ADV product. Previously, Honda was observed to have registered an adventure scooter design patent in the official Intellectual Property and Data Data (PDKI) of the Ministry of Law and Human Rights of the Republic of Indonesia.

From the prototype image, this motorbike has the same design as the ADV 150 but in terms of shape it looks more gambot with the use of more advanced components. For example, the application of an upside down front suspension, a larger exhaust layout, and the embedding of handguard components.

The analysis of the ADV 250 is also worth selling in Indonesia because AHM has already sold the Forza 250. The company does not need to bother with research and invest more to use a new pacemaker. Moreover, manufacturers bearing the flapping wing logo often use the same engine but differ only in motor design.

So what motorcycle will Honda launch, could it be the ADV 160, ADV 250, or a new adventurous scooter model? We are waiting for a surprise from AHM

Honda Finally Builds Electric Car Factory

 After announcing the partnership with Sony, Honda announced the start of construction of a new factory in China. Honda Motor China Investment Co., Ltd. announced that GAC Honda Automobile Co., Ltd (GAC Honda) has started construction work on an electric vehicle factory located in the Guangzhou Economic and Technological Development District, in the city of Guangzhou, Guangdong, China.

Honda Finally Builds Electric Car Factory

GAC Honda's new factory stands on an area of 400,000 square meters. GAC Honda leaked the total investment value of this factory of 3.49 billion R.M.B or around 521 million US Dollars. The factory is expected to be ready to operate in 2024 and produce a total production of 120,000 units annually.

The announcement of the construction of this factory had actually arrived at the beginning of the year along with Honda's plan to present future electrification products. This step is also intended to work on the Chinese market which has great potential in the development of environmentally friendly vehicles.

The plan is that Honda will present ten electric-based vehicles, namely the e: N Series in 2027. The models will be produced at Honda's GAC and Dongfeng Honda factories. Both factories are expected to be operational in 2024. It is estimated that the total production of these two factories will reach 1.73 million units per year.

GAC Honda Automobile Co., Ltd has been established since July 1998 with a total investment value of 541 million US Dollars. Share ownership in this company is divided by several parties. Honda Motor Co., Ltd. for 40 percent, Honda Motor (China) Investment Co., Ltd for about 10 percent and Guangzhou Automobile Group Co., Ltd. (GAC Group) by 50 percent.

Regarding the electric vehicle roadmap, Honda looks ambitious with plans to introduce several models. For example in the American market, Honda will work closely with GM to present EV products in the form of the Honda Prologue and a large SUV model from the Acura brand. The Chinese market was worked on with the announcement of 10 future products until 2027. The Japanese market will introduce mini EV products for commercial use in early 2024. To further popularize EV products, Honda will manufacture electric vehicle products at competitive prices and continue to build the necessary infrastructure.

The plan for this electric vehicle will continue in 2026 where Honda will start using a new platform for EV products. Honda calls it the e:Architecture which combines hardware and software to maximize the EV driving experience. This step can be seen with the formation of a new company with Sony some time ago.

Later there will be 2 sessions, a product launch on July 1 and a test ride on July 6, 2022.

AHM Will Release New Matic Adventure Motorcycle July 1, 2022, Great Opportunity to Deliver Honda ADV 160

The launch strategy, which is rarely used by AHM, in recent years has been closed about new products. But this time the company is quite open in informing the new motorcycle although it has not specifically described what model will be introduced later.

Honda ADV 160 Coming Soon?

The opportunity for the Honda ADV to pack a 160 cc engine similar to the Vario and PCX is not surprising news. Previously, AHM has also provided a related grid at the launch of the Honda Vario and PCX.

Marketing Director of PT AHM, Thomas Wijaya said that his party always wanted to realize the wishes and needs of customers, including the birth of the Honda ADV 160. 

"It is possible that we will go to another type. But back again, according to what consumers need and what we can learn from the research we have done. We will study the ADV (160 cc engine) first, its needs," explained Thomas .

Indeed, the answer is fairly normative, not wrong because each manufacturer has their own strategy to compete in the market, including information on the launch of a new motorcycle.

To note, the Honda ADV 150 is now 4 years old. At that time, the 2019 Gaikindo Indonesia International Auto Show (GIIAS) arena was the venue for the launch. Well, generally vehicle manufacturers will regenerate or update every 4 years to stimulate market interest and balance consumer needs.

With a teaser that does lead to an adventurous automatic motorbike silhouette, the ADV 160 name has a greater chance of being born. If true, he will pack the exact same engine as the Vario and PCX. This means that the all new ADV will be loaded with a 4-Valve, eSP+ engine with PGM-FI (Programmed Fuel Injection) fuel. Meanwhile, the diameter x step is 60 mm x 55.5 mm.

Referring to the performance of the PCX 160, the maximum power can explode up to 15.8 horsepower at 8,500 rpm. Then the maximum torque of 14.7 Nm at 6500 rpm. This scooter uses a centrifugal dry clutch and CVT type distribution.

As for the completeness of features, the ADV 160 is said to be packing a traction control device or HSTC (Honda Selectable Torque Control). It is also reported that there will be changes to the meter panel, slight revisions to the appearance, and the use of new wheels that are likely to use the same stripe size as the PCX 160.

BMW Motorrad Releases Teaser G 310 RR, Twin TVS Apache RR 310

 BMW Motorrad released a teaser ad about the latest entry-level sport bike. The new unit is the G 310 RR. This model is based on the same 313cc engine and platform as the G 310 R naked street fighter and G 310 GS. According to information circulating, it is ready to be launched on July 15, 2022. Although it is only in the introduction stage, the company's official website has already opened orders.

BMW Motorrad Releases Teaser G 310 RR, Twin TVS Apache RR 310

Looking back a little. BMW Motorrad has been in a partnership with TVS since 2015. In that year they gave birth to the G 310 R, followed by the BMW G 310 GS. The two new units are manufactured at TVS's factory in India. Then in early December 2017, the Indian manufacturing giant began designing its own product with an identical engine, the Apache RR310. The difference is that the model is a full fairing sport bike.

After five years of partnership, BMW seems to want an entry-level sportbike. Actually this is not really new news. The reason is that The Bavarian has displayed a carbon-wrapped concept motorbike that carries the name G 310 RR. It was shown at the BMW Motorrad Days event in Japan in 2018.

Back to the initial BMW teaser image. As expected, the overall silhouette of the German brand's full-faired sports bike is very similar to its Indian cousin. Although there are some subtle variations to distinguish the two models. The most striking is of course the BMW brand logo attached and the motorsport color "M" which is very similar to the 1000RR superbike

Although the figure in the picture is not complete, it can be seen that this sport motorbike has a sporty design. The pull of the body line from front to rear is still similar to the TVS sportbike. In another image shows a tricolor livery with red and blue colors on a white background typical of BMW. The side fairing features cool graphics with the word 'Race' written behind its name.

Another visual highlight that stands out is the split-style seats with a raised tail. The visor displayed on the Bavarian derivative sport bike is also slightly different from that seen on the Apache RR 310. It also appears that the small sportbike from BMW uses a mudguard or an additional fender at the rear. And the use of conventional front disc brakes, not the wavydisk type as seen in the Apache. Despite the design differences, the disc size may not change at 300mm at the front and 240mm at the rear.

While the black 5-spoke alloy wheels, racing-spec red trellis frame, and fat side exhaust tubes are still the same. But the shape of the taillights is slightly different from those offered in the Apache. Even so the fuel tank seen in the picture is identical. From another picture, it can be seen that BMW carries a digital instrument panel that is placed vertically. It's the same as the RR 310's, but the difference can be seen in the graphic display. On the other hand, the G 310 RR is available in another color, namely black with a matte finish.

Another notable highlight is the addition of a fully adjustable front USD (Up-Side-Down) suspension. The news circulating, the components use KYB alerts and are the same as those used on the Apache RR310. It has 15mm preload adjustment and 20 damping sets. The rear monoshock is also fully adjustable with 10 preload adjustment steps and 20 damping sets. Rigidity is adjustable, according to track requirements for an optimal racing experience.

The shock absorber option can certainly help the rider to tune the motorcycle in a more friendly way. Based on the riding style and terrain, the user can adjust the firmness and flexibility of the suspension system.

Although other details have not been disclosed by the manufacturer, the kitchen runway seems to still be based on existing products. That means it is powered by a 312cc, single-cylinder engine that is placed upside down and is liquid-cooled. The maximum power produced reaches 34 PS at 9,700 rpm and a peak torque of 27.3 Nm at 7,700 rpm. This peak performance is accessible with Sport and Track driving modes. In Urban and Rain mode, performance drops to 25.8 PS and 25 Nm. The engine is mated to a 6-speed gearbox. The top speed that can be achieved is 160 km / h and can reach 0-100 km / h in 7.17 seconds

It turns out that this is how much maintenance costs for the Honda HR-V and HR-V RS Turbo!

 The All New Honda HR-V is the latest product from Honda in Indonesia. PT Honda Prospect Motor (HPM) even announced that the waiting time for this new product could reach five months, which indicates a positive response from Honda fans in the country.

Using 'Hybrid' Technology, This is Yamaha Fazzio's Fuel Consumption

 After the Yamaha Fazzio was officially launched some time ago, finally coilOTO got the opportunity to try out the retro-style scooter firsthand.

Using Yamaha's new technology, Blue Core Hybrid, we are looking to find out the effect of this technology on fuel consumption.

Through a media test ride held by PT Yamaha Indonesia Motor Manufacturing (YIMM) together with other media partners in Bogor (3/2), the total route taken is about 20 km.

Before starting the trip, we first tried to 

connect our device with the Y-Connect feature in this Yamaha Fazzio and reset the trip meter to zero.

Considering the meter cluster, the Yamaha Fazzio is not equipped with instructions for real-time average fuel consumption information.

OK, after confirming that we are connected to the Y-Connect system, we started our journey from The Bucket List Kitchen to go around the streets of Bogor.

Oh yes, just for information, our driver is 174 cm tall and weighs 65 kg. For maximum results, we activate the Start Stop System feature.

Not yet one kilometer, we have been treated to a road with downhill conditions and then straight uphill. Of course, going through the incline requires a larger gas opening.

After that we started to enter the city streets, a perfect simulation to describe how this Fazzio is driven in the city.

Even though the majority of the roads we pass are paved, we can't say that they are always smooth and flat, besides that, we are often faced with congested road conditions and stop and go conditions. The Start Stop System feature is also active when we stop in a red light situation.

Our impression is that the power produced by the 125 cc engine is quite responsive for city use, there are no 'slow' symptoms when you need more power when you want to catch up with other groups.

We don't always drive in economy mode, occasionally if we encounter a rather long straight road, we don't hesitate to open the gas casing excessively. The highest speed we can achieve is around 60 kph.

After almost an hour of driving, we finally returned to the starting point of the trip. Then we saw the trip meter which showed the number 19.9 km, which means our total trip almost touched 20 km.

Enough routes to describe everyday use. Well, then how about the results of fuel consumption?

We opened the Y-Connect app on our connected device, where it displayed the figure of 59.8 km per liter. However, strangely, the application recorded that the route we took was only 15 km.

Is the Yamaha Fazzio Hybrid Gasoline Consumption Really Efficient? These are the daily test results

 Is the Yamaha Fazzio Hybrid gasoline consumption really economical? These are the results of our tests carried out under various conditions.

In terms of the engine, this Fazzio can indeed be said to have used Yamaha's latest generation 125 cc Blue Core kitchen

Because according to the manufacturer's technical team, only the cylinder head and block were taken from the Yamaha FreeGo and the crankcase to the rear was totally new.

From the CVT transmission section, its size is now more compact with a shorter v-belt combined with a heavier roller than the FreeGo.

The effect is that when the engine is gassed, the engine does not scream immediately but rises slowly, then the speed increases in rhythm with the increase in engine speed.

The combination of an engine that is not easy to "scream" plus hybrid technology at low speeds and a powerful heavy roller makes Fazzio efficient in fuel consumption.

Moreover, there is an SSS (Stop & Start System) feature that automatically turns off the engine if it stops for more than 5 seconds.

Using Pertamax fuel and used for daily use with various road conditions, the average gasoline consumption can penetrate 51.6 km / liter! It's very irritating!

TVS Ntorq 125 Race XP Play Smart Officially Released, Has Voice Assist Feature

 TVS Motor Company Indonesia released the Ntorq 125 Race XP Play Smart at the Jakarta Fair or Jakarta Fair 2022. This new unit carries advanced technology that combines three unique elements.

“We are pleased to introduce the TVS Ntorq 125 Race XP Play Smart to the Indonesian market. Comes armed with a variety of special features in the scooter segment class. Equipped with a driving style control system, it provides perfect and powerful performance, as well as responsive acceleration," said J Thangarajan, President Director, PT TVS Motor Company Indonesia.

TVS Ntorq 125 Race XP Play Smart Officially Released, Has Voice Assist Feature

Many things have been developed in Ntorq 125 Race XP. In addition to the latest technology called TVS SmartXonnect, there is also a drive system update on its CVT (Continuous Variable Transmission) transmission, so that the driving style can be adjusted in several levels (ride mode) and is supported by a light weight.

There are two driving modes, Racing and Street. Each is distinguished in terms of performance and fuel consumption. The Racing option is aimed at riders who like speed. Medium Street for everyday driving, which allows the use of fuel more efficient and perfect. The driving mode can be changed using the switch function on the right side of the handlebar which is attached to the starter button.

Armed with a 124.6cc mechanical heart, single cylinder, 3 valve and air cooled, it is able to produce the best performance in its class. In Racing mode, the power reaches 10 hp at 7,000 rpm and a torque of 10.8 Nm at 5,500 rpm. The top speed is 98 km/hour. Meanwhile, Street mode conditions are the same as the regular version of the TVS Ntorq, which produces 9.3 HP of power at 7,000 rpm and a maximum torque of 10.5 Nm at 5,500 rpm. Top speed that can be achieved is 95 km / h.

Connectivity is provided by the TVS SmartXconnect application which can be downloaded via the Google play store or App store. In it allows the user to set the desired 60 features. Such as navigation assistance, driving statistics, latest and last lap times, personalized welcome messages, phone call notifications, incoming SMS, engine temperature indicators, cellphone signal indicators, cellphone battery power, last location when parked, reminders for service, trips. meters and various driving modes.

Another advanced feature is the voice command technology (voice assist). Allows consumers to interact with Ntorq via voice commands. All of that is available in the TVS SmartXonnect app via a connected device such as Bluetooth headphones, wired headphones or a Bluetooth-enabled and connected helmet. The scooter's response to consumers is seen on the speedometer and as audio feedback via headphones.

In driving mode operation can also be done using voice commands. But the condition is that the speed must be less than 5 km / h for safety reasons. In addition, the driving mode can also be changed using the features on the indicator panel or dashboard with the help of the application.

The design is no different from the standard version. The body is still inspired by the stealth aircraft model. There is a firm pull on each side of the panel. The turn signal is located on the handlebar cover, as if to form a pair of animal eyes. While the main light occupies the very bottom of the shield. Then at the stern, there is a grille that inhabits the bottom of the stop lamp. Equipped with a stocky exhaust design, flat and textured floorboard, and diamond cut racing wheels.

Under the seat there is a 20 liter trunk. To make it easier for users, the gas tank is behind the stop lamp. The capacity is quite large, 5 liters. So no need to open the seat when filling fuel, because the position of the lid is at the very back of the motorbike. It is this characteristic that distinguishes TVS products from other factory-made scooters.

The difference between the Ntorq 125 Race XP Play Smart and the regular variant is only in appearance. He comes with sporty graphics that reflect an aggressive style. Combined with a headlamp that has embedded Daytime Running Lamps (DRL) such as the letter 'T' and a stop lamp with LED technology. And red rims.

Talking about the price, the TVS Ntorq 125 Race XP Play Smart is sold at a price of Rp. 21 million. However, consumers can get attractive offers during the Jakarta Fair 2022 with a price tag of Rp. 19.9 million OTR Jakarta.

All New Honda Civic e:HEV Officially Launched in Thailand

 Honda is going faster in its target of bringing a variety of environmentally friendly technologies to its products. Recently, Honda Automobile Thailand Co., Ltd officially introduced the All New Honda Civic version e: HEV for the first time in a world premiere. Honda offers its legendary sedan in two variants, namely e:HEV RS and e:HEV EL.

All New Honda Civic e:HEV Officially Launched in Thailand

The All New Honda Civic e: HEV uses the e: HEV full hybrid system technology. This technology combines two electric motors, namely a motor generator and motor drive as well as a 2.0 liter DOHC Direct Injection Atkinson Cycle engine. Quite an interesting choice even though Honda has a turbo engine version which is also popular.

For driving sensation, the driver can choose the three modes offered, namely EV Drive Mode, Hybrid Drive Mode and Engine Drive Mode according to their wishes. Honda also still offers three distinctive driving modes on its products, namely ECON, Normal and Sport.

Noriyuki Takakura, President and CEO of Honda Automobile Thailand Co., Ltd. said that after being shown for the first time at the Motor Show in Thailand some time ago, the Civic e: HEV sedan has received an extraordinary response from the public within two and a half months. This has become a trigger for enthusiasm among consumers in the e:HEV line from Honda.

Civic e HEV

“E-line; This HEV from Honda uses a full-hybrid system that provides powerful driving performance while also producing excellent fuel consumption. In addition, this is also a response to Honda's 2050 target where we have the initiative to achieve carbon neutrality and also an accident-free society with the presence of Honda Sensing. We also believe that the All New Honda Civic e: HEV can further strengthen the Honda Civic line in order to maintain its position in the compact car market.” Takakura said in his statement, Friday (17/6/2022).

On paper, the 1,993 cc 16 valve DOHC engine produces 141 ps of power at 6,000 rpm and 182 Nm of torque at 4,500 rpm. The electric motor produces 184 ps of power at 5000-6000 rpm and up to 315 Nm of torque at 0 to 2000 rpm. Some of the additional technologies in this sedan include Honda Sensing, Honda Smart Key System with Honda Smart Key Card, Remote Engine Start, 10.2-inch TFT MID screen, 9-inch head unit screen connected to Apple Carplay and Android Auto.

Dimensionally there is no difference with conventional engine variants. The Honda Civic E:HEV offers a length of 4.6 meters, a width of 1.8 meters and a height of 1.4 meters with a wheelbase of 2.7 meters. It's the weight that has a difference. The conventional engine variant weighs 1.3 tons and the hybrid version weighs 1.4 tons.

The All New Honda Civic e: HEV variant is targeted to sell 8,300 units per year when it begins to be mass marketed in the future. In addition, Honda also provides a ten-year warranty for the lithium-ion hybrid battery and a five-year warranty for the hybrid mileage system.

So what are the chances of this product being present in Indonesia? The possibility is quite wide open because the Civic products offered in the country also come from Thailand. However, this sales decision depends on the assessment of PT Honda Prospect Motor (HPM) to see the hybrid sedan market which is currently dominated by Toyota products. Regarding the price, the e:HEV EL+ variant is offered at 1.129 million Baht or around Rp. 440 million. The top model, the e:HEV RS, is offered at a price of 1.259 million Baht or around Rp. 531 million. Currently in Indonesia, only one Civic variant is offered, namely the All New Civic RS at a price of Rp. 584.9 million. This means that there is still a price gap that Honda Indonesia can work on to bring sedans with environmentally friendly technology into the country.

Hyundai Shows Stargazer Photo Cuts on Social Media

 Hyundai Motor Indonesia (HMID) today surprised the public by presenting a sneak peek of the future low MPV (Multi Purpose Vehicle), Stargazer. A total of three leaked images are shown related to its future products.

“Step into the future with a dream look is the dream of many people. Look forward to innovative designs to support your journey to various destinations. Hyundai Stargazer coming soon!” write a photo description on the upload on the hyundaimotorindonesia Instagram account, Friday (17/6/2022).

Hyundai Shows Stargazer Photo Cuts on Social Media

Talking about this latest image, Hyundai displays the front, back and a little side for its newest product. Actually, this view is not much different from some of the leaks that have been broadcast and obtained by

The front view is reminiscent of the shape of the Hyundai Staria. The LED lights that extend from left to right are the hallmark of Hyundai's future low MPV design. The similarity of this design is also present in the headlamp which is also slightly downwards, right on the front bumper.

In the leaked rear image, Hyundai shows a futuristic elongated stop lamp design. There is no combination thick line, only a firm line that also extends from right to left of the entire back door.

As for the side is still a mystery. Hyundai only shows the front side which shows the typical dynamic rim design that is also used on the Staria.

The presence of this leaked image makes a clear marker for the presence of the low MPV from Hyundai. Finally, the information obtained is the certainty of the name Stargazer on the product. This is known from the filing of a trade name in November 2020 with the number DID2020072199 and registered with the Directorate General of Intellectual Property of the Ministry of Law and Human Rights. Documents registered by Hyundai Motor Company.

The latest, through the DKI Jakarta Samsat page, it is known NJKB and the variants that will be embedded in the Stargazer. The nomenclature of the variants resembles the naming on the Hyundai Creta model.

Based on the DKI Jakarta Samsat list, there is a Stargazer code ACT15 4x2A with an NJKB of Rp. 164 million. If you look at the code, it is likely the Active variant with a 1.5L 4x2 drive engine and automatic transmission.

Continue to code Stargazer ACT 15 4x2M with an NJKB of Rp. 155 million. Next up is the Stargazer PRM 15 4x2A with an NJKB value of Rp. 202 million, the Stargazer STY15 4x2 A with an NJKB of Rp. 189 million. There are still Stargazer TRN 15 4x2A with an NJKB value of Rp. 176 million and Stargazer TRN15 4x2 M with an NJKB value of Rp. 167 million.

Possible PRM codes for Prime, STY for Style and TRN for Trend. Same as given to Creta.

Another interesting piece of information is that Stargazer's NJKB is still lower than Creta's. The Creta SUV (Sport Utility Vehicle) has an NJKB with amounts ranging from Rp. 193 million to Rp. 254 million. It could be that the price offered to Stargazer will be in the range of Rp. 200 million to Rp. 250 million.

Preparations to present the Stargazer are still being carried out by Hyundai. The team also had time to find a vehicle that might be a Stargazer being tested amidst the density of the Cipali Toll Road at KM 207 some time ago. Although covered with camouflage stickers, the vehicle's figure shows several parts that characterize Hyundai products. Like the LED stop lamp with a vertical design, the wide rear windshield ensures a spacious cabin for the LMPV segment. The headlights feature four-point LEDs, with the side shape reminiscent of the Staria MPV.

Regarding the engine, looking at the NJKB information above, it's probably still using the same engine as the Creta. This engine produces 115 PS of power and 144 Nm of torque.

So when is the official presence of this new product? It is likely to be present at the auto show in August 2022.
