Honda Small Concept to Be Showcased in New Delhi
Just as expected, Honda hasn't provided official specifications but instead hinted that a production version of the car will hit the local stores in a few years.
Additionally, Honda announced that it will also exhibit the CR-Z Concept 2009, a new prototype that previews a hybrid vehicle - also displayed at the Tokyo Motor Show in October. Honda's bipedal humanoid robot, ASIMO, will also attend the event.
The CR-Z 2-seater hybrid is powered by an 140 horsepower electric unit and is projected to hit the market in early 2010.
"The Honda CR-Z will expand our lineup of hybrid vehicles and reinforce the fun-to-drive values associated with the Honda brand," Erik Berkman, Honda Automobile Corporate Planning and Logistics said. "Beyond great styling and features, CR-Z will bring new levels of engagement and fun to customers interested a small car or a hybrid vehicle."
In separate news, Honda is also working on two-motor hybrids but the company is still struggling to keep things secret and provide more details at a later date.
"That is one major initiative we are working on," Tsuneo Tanai, Honda COO, told Autonews at the 2009 Tokyo Motor Show. "The motor will have higher output. There will be dual motors, with a larger battery that enables the car to be driven in all-electric mode."
