BANGKOK: Honda on Tuesday announced plans to exhibit the world premiere of a prototype representing the direction of the new small-sized vehicle which is scheduled to be introduced to Thailand and India in 2011.
The car will be shown at the 27th Thailand International Motor Expo 2010 from Nov 30 until Dec 12.
Building upon the Honda New Small Concept, which was showcased in India in January and Thailand in March, this prototype represents vehicle packaging that is closer to the mass-production model.
Based on this prototype, Honda will introduce two different versions of the small-sized vehicle, which will share the same basic design. In Thailand, Honda will introduce a model that complies with the country’s high fuel efficiency standards. In India, Honda will introduce a model developed exclusively for the country’s growing small car market.
In addition to the prototype, Honda also will exhibit a variety of vehicles such as the Accord, City, Civic, Jazz (known as Fit in Japan), CR-V and Freed as well as motorcycles including CBR250R, a new global sports model, and PCX, a global scooter model, both of which are being exported from Thailand to global markets.
