Honda models at Tokyo Motor Show

Honda Motor Co Ltd has announced its line-up of production and concept models ahead of the Tokyo Motor Show 2013, writes Trish Whelan.

Highlights on the Honda stand will include the Honda S660 Concept (pictured), an open-top sports-type mini vehicle, the world premier of the production model of the Urban SUV Concept, and the Japan premier of the NSX Concept, the next-generation super sports model.

Honda will also exhibit the all-new UNI-CUB, a personal mobility device developed under the theme of 'harmony with people'; the world premier of the N-WGN, the fourth model of the N Series of mini vehicles; and a number of mass-production models equipped with Earth Dreams Technology. They will also show the RA271 which was Honda's first F1 machine raced in the Formula One World Championship in 1964.

We will use this opportunity to again highlight one of our favourite concepts, Honda's NSX concept as pictured at the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show (below). In production, it will be powered by a mid-mounted, direct-injected V6 engine mated to Honda's Sport Hybrid SH-AWD (Super Handling All-Wheel Drive) system. Bring it on!
