Honda To Build Model X Concept 2001 Honda Model X (Element)
TORRANCE, Calif., January 3, 2002 --- Honda's Model X concept will be the foundation for a new Honda light truck model, American Honda Motor Co., Inc. announced today at the Los Angeles Auto Show.

2001 Honda Model X (Element)
While the official name has yet to be announced, the new vehicle will closely emulate the multi-functional Model X design concept introduced last year at the 2001 North American International Auto Show in Detroit. The new vehicle features similar "open wide" doors along with a rugged, flexible interior designed to accommodate people, bulky sports equipment and the lifestyles that come with the turf.


2001 Honda Model X (Element)"Model X radically departs from traditional automotive design and thinking in a way that resonates with a younger audience," said Dick Colliver, executive vice president of American Honda. "The Model X concept clearly demonstrated that a vehicle like this is possible to build and consumer interest is high for new and functional approaches to exterior and interior designs."

A mass production version Of the Honda Model X is scheduled for about a year from now.


The Model X concept was conceived around achieving ideal functionality for a cross-country road trip, hauling surfboards, mountain bikes, snowboards or just about anything else as it combines some of the best features of a pickup and an SÚV.

Another target of the concept was to keep the cost low, so it would be an attractive entry-level vehicle to younger buyers.

Model X was first conceived by a core group of young R&D engineers in 1998. They wanted to develop a vehicle that they could use for their activities and conducted informal on-site focus groups at colleges, beaches, campsites and in the mountains.

The exterior design has a simple two box design, with side moldings running the length of the vehicle for a durable look. The side doors are designed without a B-pillar and open from the center, achieving an "open architecture" style. These "open wide" doors make Model X the perfect base camp or location for side gate parties.

On the inside, Model X offers a resilient and comfortable interior. The floor is flat with a low loading height and features an easy to clean resin surface. All seating surfaces are made of materials that are easy to clean. Interior features include a flip-up navigation screen with integrated wireless Internet capability, video input and DVD playback. The stereo system includes MP3 download and playback capability, along with satellite radio, cassette and CD player.
