Honda start the sale of all-new 'N-ONE' mini-vehicle across Japan

Honda Motor Co., Ltd. has started the sale of the N-ONE, the third model of the new N-series mini-vehicle following the N Box and the N Box+ at dealerships across Japan.

The N-ONE was developed in the motif of the N360, the first mass-produced Honda mini passenger
car introduced to the market in 1967, and inherits Honda's M/M (man maximum, machine minimum) concept* which is the starting point of Honda's automobile design. With this new model, Honda engineers strived to build a new basic car with their passion to propose a new type of vehicle for the new era in Japan, which will enjoy enduring popularity.

Key features of the N-ONE include a spacious cabin which comfortably accommodates four adults, and an improved acceleration performance. Further, stable driving performance and excellent quietness even during highway driving were realised through adoption of a lightweight and highly-rigid body and an exclusively-developed suspension. In addition to these key features, the N-ONE realises excellent fuel economy of 27 km/l**. Moreover, for the first time among all mini-vehicles in the market***, the N-ONE features the Emergency Stop Signal (ESS) system as standard equipment on all types.

The N-ONE lineup also includes a higher grade model, the N-ONE Premium, which features a high-quality exterior and interior which are beyond those of any models in the mini-vehicle category. Furthermore, to accommodate the unique tastes of individual customers, a great variety of exterior colors are offered with total 11 body colors and a 2-tone color style, which has different colors for the body and roof.

* Honda's M/M concept is a basic approach to Honda car design calling for maximizing the space available for people and minimizing the space required for mechanical components.
