Civic Type R To Make U.S. Debut Alongside Two Global Debuts From Honda  ◾Two globals, one U.S debut from Honda planned for NYIAS

◾First Type R-badged Honda available in the U.S. goes on sale late spring

◾Most powerful, quickest, fastest and most agile Civic ever

◾Clarity Plug-in Hybrid and Clarity Electric set to make worldwide debuts

Honda took the wraps off one of the most anticipated models in its history with the unveiling of the production 2017 Civic Type R at the Geneva Motor Show earlier this month. The long-awaited Civic Type R, slated to go on sale in the U.S. in late spring, will join two global Honda debuts during its press conference in New York on Wednesday, April 12.

With an MSRP in the mid-$30k range, this is the first ever Type R-badged Honda to be sold on American soil. The Type R will feature a high performance 2.0-liter turbocharged powertrain, substantially upgraded body and chassis, and other track-ready, Nürburgring-tuned and tested performance components.

'The fastest, most powerful Honda ever sold in America, the Type R caps off the incredible success story of our 10th generation Civic lineup,' said Jeff Conrad, senior vice president & general manager of the Honda Division, American Honda Motor Co., Inc. 'We're happy to inform our U.S. enthusiasts that the long wait for the forbidden fruit of Honda Type R performance is nearly over!'

In addition to Type R, the all-new Honda Clarity Plug-in Hybrid and Honda Clarity Electric will make their worldwide debuts at the 2017 New York International Auto Show.

The two all-new, electrified Honda vehicles will make Clarity the first vehicle series to offer customers an expanded array of electrified vehicle choices with fuel cell, battery electric and plug-in hybrid powertrains wrapped in a sporty, spacious and comprehensively equipped five-passenger midsize sedan.
