The hybrid version gives a combined 159hp from the petrol engine and electric motor. And when you engage sport mode and put your foot down, you can feel those 159 horses. It has a 0-100 time of just over 8 seconds, which means all the Civic will see are the gorgeous LED tail lights of the Vezel as it roars ahead.
Also - without going into minute details of the workings of the engine-electric motor power train, it is not necessary that only one power source be used at one time. There are times, during hard acceleration or when sport mode is engaged, when the car is drawing on power from both sources simultaneously.
