Honda Exhibits World Premiere of Creative Study Model "Honda Vision XS-1" at the 12th Auto Expo 2014 in India

Tokyo, Feb 5, 2014 - (JCN Newswire) - Honda Motor Co., Ltd. exhibited the world premiere of the Honda Vision XS-1 at the 12th Auto Expo 2014 held at India Expo Mart in Greater Noida, Uttar Pradesh, India (press days: February 5-6, public days: February 7-11, 2014).

The Honda Vision XS-1 is a creative study model which embodies Honda's vision for the future of manufacturing. Based on Honda's original M/M (man maximum, machine minimum) concept*, the Honda Vision XS-1 fuses together two different values, a sporty exterior styling and amazing spaciousness, in the compact body. Furthermore, based on the Honda design concept, "Exciting H Design," Honda's human-centered design concept was embodied in this model.

The Honda Vision XS-1 was designed to represent Honda's creativity in designing compact vehicles for a market expanding globally. Although there is no mass-production plan for this model at the moment, Honda chose to exhibit the world premiere of this model in India, a rapidly growing market where Honda has strong ties.

Key features of the Honda Vision XS-1
- Three rows of seats for a maximum of seven occupants in the compact body
- Realizing both sportiness and versatile space at the same time
- Sliding doors with large openings

Since its foundation, Honda has been retaining the passion and beliefs toward the art of manufacturing. Honda will continue proposing the Honda Vision that is filled with unique ideas.

* Honda's M/M concept is a basic approach to Honda car design calling for maximizing the space available for people and minimizing the space required for mechanical components.
