The Japanese based automaker Honda has officially presented to the public at the 2012 Beijing Motor Show two new concept cars, named the Honda Concept C and the Honda Concept S.
According to the car manufacturer, the Honda Concept C is actually a preview for a new low-cost sedan which will be aimed towards the Chinese auto market, while the Honda Concept S will underpin a new global compact car. Honda says that the production version of the Concept C will hit the market in China next year, while the Concept S will be sold in global emerging markets at first. Honda also says that the Concept S is actually powered by a hybrid powertrain, but details on this haven’t been announced just yet.
The Honda Concept C is taking its “C” name from “cool, challenge and China”, as the Japanese car manufacturer is saying, and the model is actually inspired by a dragon, with an angular styling, being also a tribute for the Chinese Year of the Dragon. The design of the Honda C has been made after a collaboration between the company’s Japanese and Chinese design houses. More details on the two models will be announced once they will be ready for their new customers, as production vehicles.
