2012 Beijing: Honda Concept S hints at value people mover, coming to China in 2013

The Honda Odyssey has been the brand’s bread and butter on global scale when it comes to a family hauler. Today at the 2012 Beijing Motor Show, Honda is taking another swing at the minivan market with the new Concept S. The model is said to be global concept that shows a new-value passenger mover that was developed primarily for China

“The ‘S’ stands for ‘Stylish,’ ‘Smart’ and ‘Surprise,’ HOnda said in a statement. “Adopting a hybrid powertrain, this concept model realizes both the “fun of driving” and excellent environmental performance at the same time. A spacious cabin was realized by Honda’s packaging technologies, which is one of the distinctive strengths of Honda.”

Honda says that the mass production version of the Concept S will hit the Chinese market in 2013, followed by a global release. Does the global release include the United States? No confirmation on that yet.
