I took one of these for a test drive a few years ago, the electronic motor gave it a little boost out of the corners, but seems the Vezel was made for the Indian market with very few spare parts available in NZ.

Do you know if you can find a replacement battery in NZ now? Honda NZ seemed to not to able to help as they never brought the hybrid HRV model to NZ.

Good on you for doing the conversion btw!

These are JDM 2014+ models dealers have started to bring to NZ, a lot of them here already.
As for the batteries - too early to investigate as nobody ever asked yet.
In general, hybrid batteries are easier to source, transport and repair vs EV batteries.
If somebody is concerned about Honda hybrid, suggest go for Toyota Sienta Hybrid - 7 seater, or Auris Hybrid or Harrier Hybrid
Toyota hybrid batteries are the most common, easy to source, interchangeable between many models and I have developed conversion solutions to English for all of the above.... plus for other popular Toyota hybrids: Vitz, Axio, Fielder, Crown, Aqua 2012-2021 inclusive...
