After making the new Vezel available on the Japanese market, Honda decided to have the vehicle released on the European automobile market as well. Therefore, the company is preparing an Euro-version of the crossover car which will go on sale in 2015.
This version of the Honda Vezel will still be based on the Jazz/Fit subcompact and according to Yoshiharu Itai, the Vezel’s chief engineer, its name will most likely remain the same based on a global naming strategy. However, a few minor cosmetic tweaks will be made to suit the market, so we could se a new front end on the car. The brand’s goal is to boost sales to 6 million vehicles by March 31, 2017, and compete against cars such as Peugeot 2008, Renault Captur and even Nissan Juke.

On the other hand, the folks from U.S could get their hands on the B-segment SUV earlier. It seems that in America, the car will go on sale in the second half of 2014. Whether they will be getting it as in Japan, meaning with a hybrid variant, is unknown. This last thing also applies to Europe.

Thus, it’s safe to assume that more information, details on engine options, the model’s name and more will surely be made available in the near future.
