The Honda Shuttle Sport Hybrid i-DCD system uses a 1.5 L DOHC i-VTEC petrol engine with an electric motor integrated into the 7-speed DCT transmission and a battery pack.
The combined system output is 101 kW (137 PS / 135 hp).
The GP7 and GP8 Fit Shuttle hybrids can operate solely on electric power for short trips.
Fuel consumption is rated at 34.0 km/L (2.94 L/100 km) (JC08).
The Fit Shuttle hybrid is a popular car in Japan so there is a large selection going through auction there every week – we can assist with the entire process from selecting the best example to shipping it to Australia.
We specialise in direct car import from Japan and have been sourcing vehicles to order for private Australian buyers for over 25 years.
Every vehicle is hand-picked and we only source the very best.
We make Honda Fit Shuttle hybrid import easy with physical inspections of vehicles by experienced staff at over 30 auctions every week in the Tokyo, Nagoya, Osaka, Kobe, and Kyushu / Fukuoka regions.
We start by focusing only on vehicles with the highest auction grades. But there is a lot more involved than just basic auction grading !
Auction reports are often not reliable – we inspect every vehicle of interest in person to ensure it is up to our standard and has the options and features you want.
Most people do not realise that a significant % of vehicles in Japan are bought and sold by Japanese dealers for a quick profit between different auctions. If you are not aware of this you will almost certainly pay more than you needed to for exactly the same car.
Our experience with this situation alone will often save you more than the cost of our service fee.
Our import agent service includes a pre-check for past auction records using JCHC, at no cost to you. This allows us to rule out cars recently auctioned and simply moved to a different auction for quick resale, graded R (accident repair) cars changed to higher grades, as well as cars that have passed in unsold multiple times indicating a problem with the condition and/or price.
Our thorough Japan auction inspections include checks of engine, transmission, air conditioning / electrics plus pictures inside, outside and underneath showing options / features and any condition issues. Just like the auction history checks, in-person inspections at auction are all part of our service – no extra charge.
Following these rules and being very selective on quality allows us to consistently target first-time auctioned vehicles for our clients in the best condition and at the best price.
We also ensure that any outstanding factory recalls are completed prior to export from Japan, which is essential before import to Australia / SEVS compliance. *Recall work is free in Japan and will be arranged at no extra charge before your vehicle goes to the Port, but please note there will be a small transport charge (generally $200 to $300) to send the vehicle to the nearest Honda dealer.
Once your Fit Shuttle hybrid has been exported from Japan all original paperwork and additional items such as spare keys and books are sent to you by EMS. This includes the Export Certificate (showing up to the last two re-registration inspection dates and odometer readings, depending on vehicle age) for your peace of mind.
The hybrid Fit Shuttle has optional Honda Sensing, a package of safety features including Collision Mitigation Braking System (CMBS), Lane Keep Assist System (LKAS), Traffic Jam Assist (TJA), Road Departure Mitigation System (RDMS), Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) with Low-Speed Follow (LSF), and High Beam Support System (HBSS).
