Triple Debut for Honda in Geneva

Email   small font medium font large font

The Geneva International Motor Show will see the World Premiere of the eagerly awaited, all-new European Honda Accord model, and European debuts of the revolutionary zero-emission Honda FCX Clarity hydrogen fuel cell vehicle and the Honda CR-Z hybrid sports car concept.

The Accord zone will dominate the Geneva stand, where ten examples of the latest Accord will be on display in both sedan and Tourer body styles. The new Accord has an evolutionary appearance with a sportier and sleeker exterior for the saloon and, more noticeably, the Tourer. Also on display will be the Accord’s new range of engines, with revised 2.0 and 2.4 liter petrol engines and the all-new 2.2 liter i-DTEC diesel, all of which will comply with the forthcoming Euro 5 emissions standards.

Headlining the environment zone will be the FCX Clarity, a 4-seat saloon fuel cell vehicle which emits no pollution, only clean water vapor. Thanks to the Honda V Flow fuel cell stack, the FCX Clarity has a low-slung, dynamic and sophisticated appearance. This landmark car, in the development of fuel cell technology, will be available to lease in the US from this summer and in Japan in the autumn.

The Honda CR-Z concept design study is the basis of a forthcoming global sports hybrid. The CR-Z is a dynamically styled, ecologically conscious concept that allows drivers to enjoy driving while minimising their environmental impact.

Visitors to the stand’s competition zone will be treated to the first public viewing of the 2008 Honda RA108 F1 car. Joining the RA108 in the competition zone, will be the Honda Civic Type R R3, which is designed to the new FIA Group R3 rally regulations. The eagerly awaited R3 is now available to rally drivers, after a year of intensive and successful testing and competition.

The Honda Geneva press conference is scheduled for 8:30am (CET) on Tuesday 4th March, during which the all-new Accord will be unveiled .
