For the environmentally conscious, the big news will be the first European appearance of Honda’s sleekly aerodynamic FCEV (fuel cell electric vehicle) Concept. Honda says its next-generation fuel cell vehicle will be launching in Japan and North America in 2015.
For enthusiast motorists, Honda had a longer lineup of introductions. These include the new livery for its 2014 World Touring Car Championship (WTCC) Civic, and the powertrain layout for the new NSX supercar. The latter will be a longitudinal twin-turbo V6 with an innovative three-motor hybrid SH-AWD (super-handling all wheel drive) system.

The production version of the Type R is expected to be fitted with a 2.0-litre turbocharged engine delivering over 280 horsepower to the front wheels via a six-speed gearbox, and is slated to debut in 2015.
