Honda will be displaying a large number of concepts, production cars and motorcycles at the 44th Tokyo Motor Show, which will be open to the public from October 30 to November 8, 2015. Honda has so much to display -- show cars, motorcycles, concepts and even mobility solutions – that its stand covers the largest floor area at the show.
Overall, Honda’s portfolio models aimed at improving the lives of its customers are married into the brand global slogan “The Power of Dreams.” One of the highlights of Honda’s display at Tokyo will be its innovative production fuel cell vehicle, tentatively named Honda FCV.
FCV is technically a Honda saloon powered by a fuel-cell powertrain that is placed on the space where the engine and the transmission are usually lodged. Thanks to this powertrain layout, the FCV features a full cabin that could comfortably seat five adults.
The full potential of the Honda FCV does not only depend on the fact that it runs on clean fuel but also on its ability to cover over 700 km of exciting and dynamic driving.
On the other hand, a Japanese spec FCV could function as a mobile power plant as it features an external power feeding inverter that allows it to generate and distribute electricity in case of an emergency.
Honda is also displaying a number of conventional-powered production models specified for the Japanese market. One of these is the all-new Civic Type R, which will have its Japanese debut at the Tokyo motor show, and will be sold in the country later this year.
Likewise, Honda will unveil the all-new for-Japan-only S660 open-top sports mini-vehicle, which has been designed to offer the same pleasure that drivers can have from driving as a sports car.
Honda’s stand at the upcoming Tokyo Motor Show will also include several concept models like the Honda Project 2&4 powered by RC213V that was recently unveiled to the world at the Frankfurt Motor Show.
Honda Project 2&4 powered by RC213V features a design and technology that allows driver to enjoy the maneuverability of a car and the freedom of a motorbike. Other mobility concepts that will be showcased in Tokyo include Honda’s WANDER STAND and WANDER WALKER.
Philip Crossman, Managing Director at Honda UK, remarked that since the Tokyo Motor Show is the Honda’s home turf, the public can expect exciting displays from the Japanese carmaker.
He noted that Honda is unique in a way that it does not focus on a single product or industry, but offers machines and devices that range from a leaf blower to a business jet.
