Embedded with unique technology, Honda hybrid models deliver both the fun of driving and excellent environmental performance. Honda has expanded its lineup of hybrid cars in 2013 by launching hybrid versions of the new Fit and the Vezel in Japan. The Yorii Plant of Saitama Factory, which became operational in 2013 and is now producing the all-new Fit and other models, is establishing state-of-the-art production technologies and a highly efficient production system. The Yorii Plant will lead Honda's global automobile production by continuously evolving technologies and know-how cultivated at the plant to other Honda production operations around the world.

To ensure the satisfaction of customers in all countries and regions, Honda has deployed a development and production structure that accommodates local lifestyles and the available industrial infrastructure of each area. In Asian countries, Honda offers a diverse product lineup based on the Brio. Popular in China is the Crider, a model developed exclusively for the local market, while N-Series mini-vehicles receive wide acclaim in Japan.

The new NSX equipped with a new hybrid system that offers high efficiency and high output will be produced at our new U.S. plant and make a series of debuts in markets around the world. Development is now under way toward the release of a production version of the next-generation mini-sports vehicle drawn from the Honda S660 Concept. Honda also has unveiled to the world a new fuel cell vehicle called the FCEV Concept—yet one more example of how Honda meets the challenge of creating cars that inspire people.
