NEXT-GENERATION HYBRIDS DRIVEN BY PERFORMANCE
Following the domination of hybrid and electric vehicles at the Tokyo Motor Show 2009, Honda Motor Co. recently unveiled from under its wraps a range of factory-tuned Honda Insights at the Tokyo Auto Salon 2010, held at Makuhari Messe in Chiba, Japan from 15 to 17 January 2010. Carrying the theme “Exciting Eco”, Honda Access Corporation,
the manufacturer of genuine Honda aftermarket parts and accessories, had car enthusiasts ogling at the advanced styling and chiselled lines of the Insight Sports Modulo Concept, one of the key attractions exhibited by Honda. Complete with tail fins, a new front grille, side sills, LED lighting and distinctive multi-spoke wheels, the concept model is set to spur further interest in Honda’s next generation of hybrid vehicles.
Sharing the floor at the Honda booth were several displays of Honda vehicles, all tastefully styled with Modulo, among
them included the Modulo Stream, Modulo Step WGN, Sports Modulo Civic Type R and Civic Type R Euro. In addition, Gathers, a genuine audio and navigation system brand exclusive to Honda vehicles in Japan, showcased the Gathers Advance next-generation car navigation system concept which uses a combination of gesture and voice recognition to control the vehicle’s navigation and entertainment.
Also making an impression on the crowd was the Touring Modulo Insight, a hybrid race car that participated in 2009’s
Enjoy Endurance Race at the Twin Ring Motegi circuit in Japan. Professional racer Keiichi Tsuchiya, who piloted the Touring Modulo Insight with Takuya Izawa, a Honda NSX Super GT driver, said that the conventional racing technique may not apply when you roll out a hybrid at the circuit.
“People generally think that racing with a hybrid is no fun. But after powering up the Touring Modulo Insight at the race, it is not only a great test of fuel efficiency but I was surprised to find that the car speeds round corners very well. Owning an electric or hybrid vehicle may be a trend but it’s great to have a customisation brand like Modulo making it more exciting to drive one,” he says.
As the ownership of hybrid vehicles steadily increases, it is no longer just about demonstrating one’s commitment in protecting the environment. There is a greater opportunity now to enhance the non-conforming spirit of the individual with varying degrees of sporty modification. And that is the new value that the Modulo concept appears to bring, one that Honda will continue to innovate as it moves towards eco performance technology.
Moving away from the hybrids, a key exhibit that got fans of Honda motorsports pumped was the NSX Mugen RR, a raceinspired version of the NSX modified by Honda’s in-house tuner, Mugen. The oversized GT wing, wide bodykit and sizeable carbon fibre exterior were among the extensively modified aerodynamics on display. To commemorate the end
of its production, a special tribute to the race version of the NSX was spotted away from the Honda booth. A life size replica of the EPSON NSX made entirely out of cardboard and paper perched delicately beside the other legendary machine, the ARTA NSX, signalling their exit from the Super GT series.
The Tokyo Auto Salon 2010 drew a total of 402 car manufacturers, aftermarket parts makers, customer car shops and other automobile products in its list of exhibitors, recording more than 600 vehicles filling up the inches at the large halls. It is an annual exhibition that encourages Honda to continue innovating its aftermarket parts and accessories.
