Honda has also joined the Bandwagon of Concept cars. With an aim to clutch the mid -size segment Honda has divulged its new Honda Small Car Concept. Honda will launch the production version of this concept in 2011.
Honda Siel Cars India (HSCI) announced the World Premiere of the Honda New Small Concept today in a press conference at the 10th Auto Expo 2010. This will be the first time when Honda has chosen India for the world premiere of a concept car. The Honda New Small Concept is a concept model of a new small-sized vehicle which Honda is currently developing especially for India and other emerging nations. With its commitment to provide technologically advanced vehicles, the Honda New Small Concept is a ‘true Honda’ – futuristic design with maximum cabin space. The ‘Efficient Energetic Exterior’ based on front-forward design lends the Honda New Small Concept an appealing dynamic presence.
Honda’s design principle ‘Man Maximum – Machine Minimum’ has defined the underlying approach in the design concept of the Honda New Small Concept. A wide platform with a stable center of gravity was adopted to create a highly efficient compact size car without compromising on the cabin space hence greater passenger comfort. Developed at Honda’s Automobile R&D Center in Japan, the Honda New Small Concept is designed to be a family car with a capacity to comfortably seat 5 adult passengers. Addressing the media during an official press conference Mr. Koichi Kondo, Executive Vice President and Representative Director, Honda Motor Co., Ltd., said, “We are delighted to unveil the Honda New Small Concept at the 10th Auto Expo. India has been the hub for the compact car segment and is also the lead country for our research and development work on the New Small Concept. The new model based on this concept will be a global car with features to suit the needs of India customers. We plan to launch this car by 2011.”
