Honda has revealed a number of new concept cars at this year’s Beijing motor show.
Leading the pack is the Concept B, a design study for a 5-door model developed exclusively for the Chinese market.
The car’s exterior design takes on a compact hatchback style that Honda designers say is popular among young people in China. The development of a mass-production model based on the concept is currently in progress, which Honda plans to introduce to the market within two years.
A second concept being exhibited in Beijing is a model for the all-new Spirior (the Chinese market Accord), which has been developed by Dongfeng Honda, the Japanese brand’s car production and sales joint venture company in China. The market introduction of the new Spirior is scheduled before the end of this year.
Following on from the two concept cars, Honda has also previewed the RLX Sport Hybrid SH-AWD, a luxury vehicle to be launched in China under the Acura moniker later on in August this year. The car features a 3.5 litre direct-injection i-VTEC V6 engine, which is mated to a 7-speed double clutch transmission.
