Honda has announced it will debut two new models at the 2018 Beijing Motor Show near the end of April, including an electric vehicle (EV) concept as well as an all-new sedan.

The EV concept previews a model that will be sold in China before the end of this year, which will be developed by GAC Honda. The company is a joint venture between Guangzhou Auto (GAC) and Honda, which was first known as Guangzhou Honda before being renamed GAC Honda in 2008.

It is not yet known what form the EV will take, although it’s rumoured the vehicle will be an electric-only version of the HR-V, or Vezel as it is known there.

As for the sedan, Dongfeng Honda, another joint venture between Dongfeng Motor Group and Honda, will produce the model. This is likely an all-new Spirior, which in its previous iterations was a badge-engineered version of the Honda Accord made by Dongfeng Honda sold only in China.

Aside from these two world debuts, the latest Accord Hybrid and Acura CDX Hybrid will also celebrate their Chinese premieres in Beijing, with the latter being an electrified version of the HR-V based crossover.
