An all-electric sports car from Honda
As we all know, the Tokyo Motor Show is no more, and in its place is the new Japan Mobility Show happening next month.
True to its name change, the new format will cover all forms of mobility compared to the traditional car-centric theme. It's not just four-wheeled concepts that we're seeing at Tokyo Big Sight, but also other mobility products like motorcycles and even aircraft.
While Mitsubishi made it clear that they will have an adventure-themed booth, Honda, on the other hand, is giving a glimpse of their “dream” mobility ideas for the future. They have fully embraced the mobility theme as their lineup will consist of a wide variety of motorcycles, automobiles, power products, aircraft, and other products, as well as technologies and concept models.
But really, it's still their high-performance vehicle models that we're looking forward to seeing, and Honda is delivering just that. The manufacturer is hosting the world debut of the Specialty Sports Concept at the Japan Mobility Show.
It's not the first time we've heard of the Specialty Sports Concept, as Honda announced the vehicle last year along with the flagship sports EV. The two are part of Honda's plans to introduce 30 EV models by 2030.
Honda has not released new teaser images of the Specialty Sports Concept. But last year, the concept EV looked like it had the proportions of a front engine (sorry, motor), rear-wheel-drive grand tourer that has a silhouette similar to the Honda HSV-010 race car they used in Super GT.
Along with the Specialty Sports Concept, the Honda booth will also feature the Prologue EV SUV prototype, the SUSTAINA-C hatchback, and the MEV van concept, among many more mobility products.
The Japan Mobility Show's press day will start on October 25, and it will open to the public from October 28 to November 5, 2023.
