JAKARTA (Antara) – Japanese automotive manufacturer Honda is reportedly soon producing the Prelude concept globally and is ready to meet the needs of Honda consumers for both left and right steering.
It’s a shame that Honda didn’t offer this car with the sporty aura or outright pace that many Honda fans were waiting for, Carscoops reported on Sunday.
The car presented at the Japan Mobility Show (JMS) looks quite production-ready. And if consumers are familiar with Honda, they have the ability to be presented with a production car disguised as a concept car, as is the case with the Civic.
The 10th generation Civic concept is more or less the same Civic well generation with a more aggressive stance and revised bumpers, while the 11th generation Civic prototype is actually the same sedan that brought it into production.
Honda President and CEO Toshihiro Mibe confirmed this at the 2023 Japan Mobility Show. Mibe said the car is currently under development, and Honda plans to bring it to market in the mid-2020s.
Toshihiro Mibe said, “Considering that we are already in 2023, that means that this car will start shining within 2 or 3 years if we are optimistic.”
However, for those hoping for a Mazda Miata/Toyota GR86/Subaru BRZ competitor, you may be a little disappointed.
Speaking to CarsGuide about the Prelude’s hybrid powertrain, Honda’s big projects chief engineer, Tomoyuki Yamagami, was reluctant to go into details, but did reveal that it (the Prelude Concept Hybrid) won’t be the most popular car. sporty And the most agile that will be thrown on the circuit.
With this in mind, it is still unclear which market segment this car will fall into. In a way it is well appears small sporty And naturally it would be pitted against the Miata, GR86 and BRZ, but it wasn’t meant to be. sporty,
If Honda can sell at the right price, they can make a profit. If not, we could see the arrival of a second CR-Z, another semi-sporting 2-door that aims to carry on the legacy of its predecessor.
