2012 Geneva: On that side of the world, they call it the Honda NSX

While we on the stateside have come to know the NSX as a supercar sold under the Acura brand, the rest of the world has always known it to be a car sold under Honda.

Personally, I’ve always liked Honda NSX name better than Acura NSX, but the Acura brand definitely needs a halo car to boost its image in the United States.

Power for the Honda and Acura NSX will come from 2 Electric Motor Drive Unit with a bilateral torque adjustable control system. The new hybrid all-wheel-drive system can instantly generate negative or positive torque to the front wheels during cornering, which Honda says will deliver handling performance unmatched by previous AWD systems. In addition to the handling benefits of the Sport Hybrid SH-AWD system, a next-generation VTEC V6 engine with direct-injection, works together with a dual clutch transmission and a third electric traction motor integrated within the transmission.

Production begins in Ohio in 3 years.
