Overview of Exhibit for the 43rd Tokyo Motor Show 2013

"Live Outside the Box"

October 23, 2013 - Honda announced its exhibits at the 43rd Tokyo Motor Show 2013 at Tokyo Big Sight. (Press days: November 20 - 21, 2013, Public days: November 23 - December 1, 2013).

This year, Honda has adopted the theme of "Live Outside the Box" to propose its original mobility products generated from Honda's innovative inspirations unbounded by precedent or conventional wisdom. Honda will unveil the Honda S660 CONCEPT, an open-top sports-type mini-vehicle (which I believed to have evolved from the EV-Ster CONCEPT showcased at the show in 2011. The NSX CONCEPT, the next-generation super sports model will also be shown.

With the aim of breaking the stranglehold of Suzuki in the mini-vehicle market, Honda will yet debut another model of its B-series, the N-WGN. It is the 4th model of the series and will enhance the variety available to the mini-vehicle buyers in addition to the successful N-One and N-Box.

Initial Impressions of 9G Accord Sport in USA

Early March 2013. I had come across videos on Youtube by a Honda enthusiast by the name of Jason Richmond, who had been presenting weekly news on Honda under the title of "HondaPro Jason". It had struck a cord with me as I had this idea flashing past in my mind several years ago.

Mid March 2013. I landed in Chicago, Illinois, and wanted to meet Jason. We exchanged messages and I was set to meet him, on my birthday. I was excited as I wanted to meet this man who had demonstrated his passion on Honda with his weekly Youtube videos.
