Honda will be presenting its new model range of refreshed and all-new cars at the 2015 Frankfurt Motor Show (2015 IAA). Along with the new model line-up, Honda will also display design concepts and new technologies in the personal mobility sector at the show.
The Honda Project 2 & 4 will have its global premiere at the prestigious event. Designed to portray the company’s concept of ‘creative craftsmanship’ the ‘Project 2 & 4’ is intended to combine the company’s motorcycle technology along with four wheels. It has been designed together by Honda’s motorcycle design centre in Asaka and Honda’s automobile design centre in Wako, Japan.
The company will also be showcasing the HR-V and third generation Jazz. Both models are scheduled to arrive in Europe in September with new design, spacious interiors and advanced safety features. The CR-V has also been updated for Europe and will feature an addition of a new diesel engine and a 9-speed automatic transmission. The new CR-V will also feature new technologies for added occupant protection.
The 2015 Honda Civic and Civic Tourer will be showcased sporting refreshed exteriors and reworked interiors. The new models will also feature Honda Connect which is an Android-based infotainment system with Mirror Link, Bluetooth, USB, WiFi, and HDMI connectivity.
Honda will also be showcasing the all-new Civic Type R to represent its dedication to delivering class-leading performance. The British-built model debuted earlier this year at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show. It features an all-new 2.0-litre VTEC TURBO engine that produces 310 PS (305 hp) at 6,500 rpm.
The UNI-CUB β personal mobility device will also be showcased at the show. The device incorporates features like an omni-directional driving wheel system and balance control technology. The omni-directional driving wheel system (Honda Omni Traction Drive System) was developed from the research conducted by the company into its humanoid robot ASIMO.
