Even nevertheless the 2021 Tokyo Car Salon is not occurring in particular person, Honda has some virtual reveals prepared for this year’s on the net-only party, which formally kicks off on January fifteen. But two of people scheduled debuts have shown up on the net a little bit early: a Honda N-Van dressed up to glance like a cellular cafe and a Fit hatchback crafted to acquire on nearly anything. And we really like them each equally.

To start with, let’s glance at that lovable N-Van, which Honda phone calls the “third Place Van” for reasons that usually are not totally very clear. Included in stainless steel (or at the very least what appears like it), the business personalized this N-Van to resemble a cellular cafe. It comes full with a pink-and-white awning, ideal ornamental hanging lights, and even a minimal menu board.

Some other exclusive elements of this thought that you will not likely find on the production model are the black steel wheels, three amber working lights over the windshield, and a glossy silver roof rack. All of these elements give the thought a cellular cafe-like glance.

As for the Fit, Honda phone calls this customized develop the “HEV Crosstar.” Influenced in part by the Honda Hunter Cub motorbike, the hatchback employs a amount of off-street-inspired cues. The suspension has a modest lift, Toyo off-street tires wrap about black steelies, there’s a Yakima roof rack up major, and some more black body specifics atop the beige paint assist to more toughen up the styling.

For now, we only have a couple of specifics on these two lovable ideas. But we be expecting Honda to release much more information and facts, as very well as a couple of much more fun ideas, when the virtual Tokyo Car Salon formally kicks off later following week.
