Honda’s future: no NSX sports car, only small cars for you
If you were sill hopping to see a new generation Honda NSX sports cars is time to stop dreaming. In an interview at Tokyo Motor Show, Honda chief executive Takanobu Ito sweep any dreams you might have had: there will be no successor for the NSX, not even in a hybrid version. Instead Honda plans a smaller city car placed under the current Jazz.
Also Honda has no plans for a pure battery electric vehicle and plans to build clean-fuel diesels for the US market had been canceled also.
Talking about hybrid cars, Takanobu Ito said Honda will use two hybrid systems: small cars like Civic will use a single-motor part-electric system, while bigger hybrid cars would use two electric motors.
There will also be no Acura on the European market.
