Honda has unveiled two new concept cars at the 2012 Beijing Motor Show “that show the direction of mass-production models Honda will introduce to the market next year.” The Concept C midsize sedan and Concept S passenger mover are a preview of what we will soon see on the road.
The Concept C midsize sedan is a sedan that Honda is developing specifically for the Chinese market. The “C” represents “Cool,” “Challenge,” and “China.” The Concept C features a stately, distinctive and sporty design that was inspired by the image of a dragon.
The Concept S is a preview of a new global minivan that was also developed primarily for the Chinese market and will go on sale first in China in 2013. The “S” stands for “Stylish,” “Smart” and “Surprise.” The Concept S is powered by a hybrid powertrain, but Honda did not release any specific details about it. But Honda did state that the Concept S “realizes both the “fun of driving” and excellent environmental performance at the same time.”
