Concept Vehicle Stage
  • HSC (Concept vehicle)
    The HSC, a pure sports car, is the latest inheritor of the Honda sports DNA which originated with the S500, Honda's first automobile, a two-seat sports car. The HSC was created to deliver the joy of a sports car and the thrill of free-spirited driving in a package that anyone can handle. The long wheelbase and short overhangs help maximize performance, and the lightweight, compact V6 engine, located mid-ship for better handling, is designed for high efficiency and delivers ouput in excess of 300 horsepower*.

  • IMAS (Concept vehicle)
    A highly maneuverable, environment-friendly car that responds to the rider's every whim, the IMAS is designed to provide an invigorating, cutting-through-the-breeze feeling. The design concept was to combine environment-friendly performance with fun-to-drive sports-car performance in an advanced, lightweight, aerodynamic package. The body is made mainly of super-light carbon fiber and aluminum-the overall weight is just 700kg*. A sweeping aerodynamic shape helps achieve a drag coefficient(CD) of just 0.20.
    The efficient powerplant is a refined update of Honda's IMA system. Outstanding aerodynamics, light weight and a 'green' powerplant for bicycle-like freedom of movement-that's what the new-age lightweight IMAS sports car is all about.

  • KIWAMI (Concept vehicle)
    Honda was the world's first automaker to bring a fuel cell vehicle to market. The Kiwami matches Honda's clean-performing fuel cell technology with the Japanese aesthetic of cleanliness to create an ideal sedan for the next generation. The beauty of a landscape as it changes hues with the seasons; the gentle murmur of a clean, flowing stream; the scent of a new season carried on the breeze .... The Japanese aesthetic sensibility and values are subtly expressed in this unique vehicle, with its quietly strong, minimalist stance.
    The advanced packaging technology that made the lower floor possible ensures a roomy interior despite the vehicle's low roofline. The interior design reflects the Japanese sense of a luxurious, relaxing atmosphere. The latest in clean fuel cell technology meets the beauty of traditional Japan in this new premium sedan.
