The company hasn’t divulged much about the design study, except to say it previews a five-door model developed exclusively for the Chinese market. No tech or powertrain specs, but aside from the expected petrol form, reports indicate that a hybrid variant is also being planned.
Honda says the Concept B’s design (which is ‘advanced’ and ‘cool-looking’, so it goes) has been geared to appeal to younger drivers in China, but adds that it will also be a very practical offering.
The development of a mass-production model based on the concept model – which is curiously tagged as a ‘compact hatchback’ – is in progress, and the company says it plans to introduce the car into the market in two years. The final product should of course be more subdued, looks-wise.
