Honda to Begin Sales of All-new "N BOX +" Mini-vehicle

TOKYO, Japan, July 5, 2012 - Honda Motor Co., Ltd. today announced it
will begin sales of the N BOX + ("N BOX plus"), the second
model of the new mini-vehicle N Series, at dealerships across Japan on
July 6, 2012. Following the introduction of the N BOX, which realized
one of the largest*1 interior spaces among all mini-vehicles in the
market through adoption of newly-designed platform and powerplant,
Honda is now introducing the N BOX + which was developed under the
concept of "adding ("plus") new possibilities."

Two innovative ideas were added to the large cargo area made possible
by the combination of Honda's innovative packaging technology, the
center-tank layout, and the newly-developed powerplant. The
"Universal Bridge*2" combines a sloped floor and an
attachable aluminum slope*3, which makes the loading and unloading of
luggage and other items easier. The "Multi-space System*2"
realizes versatile space arrangements with three different sized

The addition of these innovative ideas enables the N BOX + to
accommodate diverse customer needs in a wide range of vehicle uses
including daily routines, recreational activities and special needs

The 2-tone color style, which has different color combinations for the
body and roof, was established to enable each owner to more strongly
express their personality in a fun way, expanding the potential for
the joy of customers.

The N BOX, the first model of the new mini-vehicle N Series, was
Honda's proposal for a "mini mini-van" which leverages its
overwhelming spaciousness beyond the concept of mini-vehicle to
enhance occupant comfort. The vehicle has been well received by a
large number of customers, especially families with children, and
cumulative sales since the sales launch in December of last year has
already reached approximately 100,000 units.

[Key features of N BOX +]
The "Multi-space System" realizes versatile space
arrangements with three boards:
- A wide variety of arrangements including several cargo modes or a
bed mode which folds flat can quickly be made using large and small
multi-boards and an end board.

The "Universal Bridge" combines a sloped floor and an
attachable aluminum slope, to improve the ease of loading and
- In addition to sloping the low floor which was realized by the
center-tank layout, Honda's innovative packaging technology, an
aluminum slope was made available to bridge the vehicle floor and the
ground, making it easier to load and unload heavy items on wheels such
as a small motorbike.

Visibility and sense of security beyond the mini-vehicle category:
- In addition to realizing an eye point as high as that of a mini-van,
installation of mirrors which help eliminate blind spots around the
left-front wheel, left-rear wheel, and lower rear make it easier to
pull up closer to an object on the side or to park.

A high-performance powertrain realizes both excellent driving
performance and fuel economy at a high level:
- Smooth and powerful driving was realized through the combination of
a high-output/high-torque DOHC engine which generates output and
torque at the top level of the class and a CVT (Continuously Variable
Transmission) with high power efficiency. Excellent fuel economy of
21.2km/L*4 was realized through adoption of various features including
the idle stop system and ECON mode system.
- A DOHC Turbo engine with high-performance turbo charger is available
in all grades.

*4 N BOX + and N BOX + Custom FWD vehicles (excluding turbo model)
measured in JC08 mode (Testing by Japanese Ministry of Land,
Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism)

High safety performance and enhanced safety features:
- Class-leading omni-directional collision safety performance was
realized with the newly-designed engine and new load distribution
- VSA (Vehicle Stability Assist) system is standard equipment on all
- HSA (Hill Start Assist) that temporarily prevents the vehicle from
rolling backward when starting on an upward incline is installed as
standard equipment on all types.
- Driver-side i-SRS airbag system (with continuously staged inflation)
and SRS airbag system for front passenger are standard equipment on
all types.
- The impact-mitigating headrests in the front seat which are designed
to help mitigate the likelihood of a neck injury in the event of
collision, and the interior which protects occupants' heads from
impact are adopted.

Environmental performance:
- All types are certified by Japanese Ministry of Land,
Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism as complying with the 2005 - 75%
emissions standard.
- G and GūL Package (FWD/4WD) for both N BOX + and N BOX +
Custom comply with the 2015 fuel economy standard.
- More than 90 percent of the entire vehicle is recyclable*5.
