Honda is set to unveil a hybrid version of its Jazz model at the Paris Motor Show next month. Destined for market in 2011, the Hybrid Jazz will use Honda's IMA (Integrated Motor Assist) parallel hybrid system, placing an electric motor in between a CVT gearbox and the same 1.3-litre i-VTEC engine found in the Hybrid Insight.

The supermini has also undergone a style overhaul for its hybrid rebirth – the headlights, grille and bumpers have all been revisited. There's also been refinements to the dashboard and a for the first time a leather trim is on offer.

Honda isn't releasing MPG or emissions data until the debut – we'll bring you full details from Paris next month.
