Honda has created a new super mini for Japanese and other Asian markets where fuel efficiency is number one priority, such as Thailand and India. It’s called the Honda NSC, or, New Small Concept.
The concept was originally unveiled at the Dehli Auto Expo in January this year. No engine details have been officially released yet, but speculators say a very small – under 1.3-litre – three or four cylinder engine will exist in the engine bay. Other reports say a 1.0-litre three cylinder engine will be destined for Europe, whilst a 1.2-litre will be headed for Thailand.
The car will eventually go on sale here in Australia after its initial overseas launch in 2011. It’ll head into the still-growing super mini category in Australia joining the likes of Suzuki’s Alto, the Hyundai i10 and the Holden Barina Spark.
We’ll be sure to bring you more details upon it’s launch at the Thailand Motor Expo, starting December 1. Stay tuned.
