2016 Freed Hybrid

Sport Hybrid i-DCD

The world’s first*1 neodymium magnet with absolutely no heavy rare earth metals was adopted for the drive motor of Freed hybrid.

The IPU (Intelligent Power Unit) was downsized and moved beneath the first-row seats from the previous location beneath the third-row seats, which created extra space in the cabin, making it possible to add a wheelchair-accessible vehicle to the lineup. Moreover, by designing an IPU exclusively for this model, hybrid types equipped with a 4WD system were made possible for the first time*2 among other compact minivan models in the market.
