Honda Set to Hand Civic Hatchback Prototype Worldwide Debut at 2016 Geneva Motor Show
The Honda Civic Hatchback Prototype will receive a global unveiling at 2016's Geneva Motor Show amongst other new features in what will be a step towards the evolution of Honda’s European car range.
For the first time, Honda enthusiasts worldwide will obtain an exterior design preview of the brand-new Honda Civic Hatchback, which is expected to have its European launch date in the early parts of 2017.
The new Civic Hatchback model will go into production at the Honda of the UK Manufacturing (HUM) plant in Swindon and will be exported globally – including to the U.S.A.
The 2017 model’s predecessor was the 2015 Honda Civic which evolved its smart interior and exterior design elements such as traffic sign recognition, a more economical rear wing design, 90 degree doors and a more connective entertainment system.
In addition to the all-new Civic Hatchback, Honda are expected to a hand a European launch to the Clarity Fuel Cell at the prestigious Motor Show. The Clarity Fuel Cell will be able to house the entire fuel cell powertrain under the bonnet – the world’s first fuel cell saloon to do so.
Honda are also expected to announce a new design-concept for their Jazz model called “Keenlight” which will allow for improved functionality for customisation.
Honda will hold a press conference at the Honda stand (4250) at 11:45 UK time on Tuesday 1st March.
The Geneva Motor Show is one of the biggest events on the motoring calendar and will be marking its 86th event this year.
