From the world’s bestselling SUV to the futuristic Sports EV Concept, Honda will showcase a range of its latest and most exciting vehicles and concepts at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show, held from 8 to 18 March.
All-new Honda CR-V
The latest generation of the Honda CR-V will make its European premiere in Geneva. Available for the first time in Europe with the option of a hybrid powertrain, the new SUV raises the bar in terms of quality, interior packaging and refinement.
A trio of Honda electric concepts
The Urban EV Concept makes a return to Europe following its global premiere at
Frankfurt Motor Show in September 2017. The Concept signifies Honda’s intention to enter the European electric vehicle market, with a production version planned for launch next year.
Fresh from its premiere at 2017 Tokyo Motor Show in October, Honda will also display the Sports EV Concept. With an eye catching design and low center of gravity, it gives a glimpse of how an electric sports car of the future might look.
The final member of an electric trio at Geneva is NeuV. First shown at the Consumer Electronics Show in 2017, the NeuV is an advanced electric concept packed with autonomous features and artificial intelligence.
Honda’s celebration of Motorsport
Alongside the range of new electric cars, Honda will show an extensive display of four and two wheel motorsport. The Civic Type R TCR will lead this display and make its first motor show appearance ahead of the inaugural season of WTCR. The TCR will be alongside many examples of Honda racing machinery, including the NSX GT3.
On two wheels, Honda’s championship-winning MotoGP bike will feature alongside World Superbike and Dakar Rally challengers.
About 2018 Geneva Motor Show
The 88th Geneva International Motor Show, as ever an event not to be missed…Over 180 exhibitors will fill up the 88th Geneva International Motor Show and more than 70 press conferences are expected by top marques in the world.
This 88th edition of the Motor Show will be welcoming, as is the custom, some 180 exhibitors in the 6 exhibition halls dedicated to automobiles and one hall reserved for the suppliers and representatives of the Swiss automotive industry. In spite of the absence of Opel, Infiniti, DS and Chevrolet/Cadillac, the 106,000 square meters of exhibition space at Palexpo is fully booked.
Aston Martin had seized on this opportunity to enlarge their stand by taking over the space from Opel. Jaguar and Land Rover will also enlarge their stands by taking over the space normally attributed to Citroën. This manufacturer will re-join Peugeot on the other side of the hall, which will reunite the PSA brands.
A large number of small manufacturers of exclusive models and high-level preparation specialists will be joining the Motor Show. Among these new exhibitors in the “automobile halls” will be Applus Idiada, Arden, Caresoft, Corbellati, E-Moke, Engler, Fomm, GFG Style, Hennessey, Icona, Luxaria Technology, Lvchi Auto, Pal-V, Polestar, Quadro Vehicles and W Motors.
Visitors interested in energy efficient vehicles will be delighted with the choice. The Swiss Federal Energy Office will again be a Presenting Partner for the Motor Show with its campaign “co2auplancher” which involves the promotion of vehicles that emit no more than 95 grams of CO2/km. The App “Salon Car Collector” can be used to locate these models on the stands of the exhibitors. The Swiss Federal Energy Office will expand the spectrum of the vehicles involved.
Finally, in Hall 3, TAG Heuer will present a special exhibition dedicated to great racing cars for the pleasure of fans of motorsports and high quality watches.
