Honda at the 2015 Tokyo Motor ShowHonda has taken center stage at the 2015 Tokyo Motor Show with six world premieres
Honda has taken center stage at the 2015 Tokyo Motor Show with six world premieres out of the 42 world debuts in the year’s hottest motor spectacle. To go along with the six world premieres, Honda also got the Japan debut done for Honda Project 2&4 powered by RC213V, NSX and the 6-speed manual transmission Civic Type R.
What caught the fancy of motor enthusiasts was the Honda Wander Stand Concept that can have two adults ride beside each other revolutionizing the way we will be driving in the near future. With the use of Omni Traction Drive System, narrow roads will be easy to maneuver. This is the better version and perhaps the beta version of future smart cars.
The NSX showed off Honda’s tireless pursuit in chasing and offering car lovers immense driving satisfaction. Boasting a V6 twin turbo engine, a 9-speed Dual-clutch Transmission along with an electric motor that is very efficient when it comes to functionality, the latest NSX Sports Hybrid also has the tag of SH-AWD (Super Handling All-Wheel Drive) attached to it.
Special mention needs to be made of the S660 that made it to the Motor Shows Special Collection. Donning a classy gun metallic paint overcoat with suede interiors accompanying the glossy black finishing, the S660 will be a favorite among sports cars lovers. Along with the world premiere of the S660, the N-Box also had its world debut with ‘spaciousness’ being the buzzword around this car. This mini car will be a hit among the environmentalists not just for its efficient functionality, but also for its 360° Super UV and IR-Blocking package that is capable of blocking over 99 percent of UV rays.
Honda continues to chase its goal of producing the fastest front-wheel-drive production vehicle with the Civic Type R. The 2.0 L VTEC Turbo Engine combines with its turbocharging unit to produce up to 228 KW output and a maximum torque of 400 N•m. These performance numbers specifications are of course the highest ever engine performance that Honda has come out with for the Civic.
Finally, the Honda Project 2&4 with a V4 engine comes with a minimalist, less is more, sort of design. On its own the design ensures better visibility of the frames and mechanical system while the floating seat gives the driver a better feel of the road. This is heavily inspired from their motorcycle designs for the MotoGP and gives drivers an excellent, unique driving experience.
