|Honda’s major exhibits at the 2013 Auto Shanghai Show entailed two Multi-purpose vehicles and a sedan that are predominantly for the Chinese market.|
Honda showcased the Honda Concept M, Honda CRIDER and Honda JADE especially for the visitors at the Auto show in one of the top Chinese cities.
The Honda Concept M is the soon-to-be-realized MPV and offers the attributes of a passenger car. In addition, the Concept M combines expected level of comfort and a spacious interior, while merging latest technologies with the fun of driving aspect into one value added package. The Concept M, designed by the Honda R&D design studio in Japan, is slated for debut next year.
Next to the Honda Concept M was the Honda CRIDER, a mass-production vehicle based on the Concept C. The Concept C was previously premiered at the 2012 Beijing Motor Show. Developed under a design concept based on an image of a dragon, the CRIDER features class-leading vehicle size, an energetic exterior design (some stark resemblance to the Civic 9th-generation) and supposedly leads the class in performance, fuel and emissions. This sedan is only for the Chinese market and scheduled for the masses in June this year
The Honda JADE is another MPV, but essentially a Crossover MPV; the Jade is similar to either a Honda Stream and a Honda Odyssey. depending on how you look at it. The front fascia of the Jade takes up recognizable elements of the current Honda Civic and City line-ups.
Based on the Concept S which was showcased at last year’s Beijing show, the Honda Jade features an innovative design that’s developed based on an image of jade stone with a unique exterior look and noble sense of quality within. Something that’ll surely appease the Chinese. Honda has announced that the Jade would hit the showrooms across greater China in September.
