If you’re a fan of Honda’s much-loved hatch, here’s some good news: The fourth generation of the Jazz will be revealed later this year.

Honda president and CEO Takahiro Hachigo mentioned the all-new hatchback’s imminent arrival in a speech about the company’s automobile direction. While there were no photos of the model shown nor any mention of concrete specs, here’s what we’ve learned so far:

  • The all-new Jazz will make its global debut at this year’s Tokyo Motor Show. Expect that launch on opening day in October.
  • Honda will be expanding its two-motor hybrid system to its entire lineup. The brand has designed a more compact version for smaller vehicles, and the Jazz will be the first to use it.

By 2025, Honda will reduce its number of trims and options globally to one-third of the current inventory.

We’ll be there live on the showroom floor in Japan for the all-new Jazz’s reveal, so stay tuned for that later this year.
