Honda-Shanghai-2013-Concept

Honda has released teaser images for two concept cars that will be shown at the upcoming Auto Shanghai 2013 – one a Honda and the other an Acura.

The Honda concept “shows the direction of an all-new model Honda will be introducing to the Chinese market in the future,” and we presume the same for the Acura sketch. The Acura concept appears to be an SUV, while the Honda, with a much larger cabin, could be either a large three-row SUV or even an MPV.

Besides the above, Honda will also “display models substantially identical to the mass-production version of the Concept C and Concept S” shown at the Beijing Motor Show last year. Inspired by the dragon, the Concept C is a mid size sedan specially made for China, in contrast to the Concept S people mover, which was developed primarily for the Chinese market, but will go global.

Interestingly, Honda will be pleasing its two Chinese partners in this case – the Concept C will be made by Guangqi Honda while the Concept S will roll out from Dongfeng Honda. They are scheduled to be introduced to the market later this year.
