The powertrain pairs a 150hp, 1.4-litre petrol engine with a 115hp electric motor, with a combined system output of 245hp.
Three equipment grades are available. Standard equipment with entry-level VZ2 includes 19in alloy wheels, rear diffusers with twin exhaust pipes on each side, racing bucket seats, a digital cockpit, a 10in touchscreen with sat-nav, Apple Carplay and Android Auto connectivity, keyless entry and start, a tiredness recognition system, a lane keeping system and autonomous emergency braking.
Stepping up to VZ3 spec adds equipment including leather seats, a heated steering wheel, wireless smartphone charging, and on the estate version a hands-free electric tailgate.
Standard equipment with First Edition models includes dynamic road sign display, high beam assist, predictive and adaptive cruise control, side and exit assist and lane change assist.
Prices for the e-Hybrid hatch are £34,495 for VZ2 spec, £36,225 for VZ3 and £35,775 for First Edition, while estate prices are £35,525, £37,585, and £37,240 respectively. The first deliveries are expected before the end of the year.
