Two of Japan’s auto powerhouses are set to reveal exciting concept cars at the 86th Annual Geneva International Motor Show in March this year with Mazda showcasing the RX- Vision and Honda unveiling the Civic Hatchback Prototype.
The RX-VISION concept puts a stunning new form to Mazda’s illustrious heritage of rotary powered sports cars. Linking with the company’s one-of-a-kind range of RX-badged production models, the RX-VISION is a shining symbol of Mazda’s challenger spirit as the only carmaker to ever succeed on the market with the rotary engine. The project also provided fertile ground for the company’s designers, who came up with a unique KODO – Soul of Motion look that screams performance – and won the RX-VISION “Most Beautiful Concept Car of the Year” at the recent Festival Automobile International in France.
Mazda’s exhibit can be found at stand 5150 in hall 5 of Geneva’s Palexpo convention centre. The show opens to the media on 1 and 2 March and the public from 3-13 March.
Civic Hatchback Prototype
The Civic Hatchback Prototype receives its global premiere at Geneva Motor Show, previewing the exterior design of the all-new hatchback model, scheduled for a European launch in early 2017. Produced at Honda of the UK Manufacturing (HUM), the car will be exported to global markets, including the US.
Clarity Fuel Cell
The Clarity Fuel Cell will make its European debut at Geneva, following its global unveil at Tokyo motor show in October last year. Clarity Fuel Cell is the world’s first production fuel cell saloon to house the entire fuel cell powertrain under the bonnet. With a range of up-to 435 miles (700 km)*, the Clarity Fuel Cell achieves best-in-class range while its unique packaging allows an interior design to offer seating for five, a first for a fuel cell saloon.
