Toyota and Honda to showcase new and redesign models at the North American International Auto Show – Part 2

Honda, on the other hand, had been struck immensely by natural catastrophes last year. Its local production in Japan was severely affected by the March earthquake and Tsunami. That turmoil was followed by Thailand floods in September that stalled the supply of various plastic, electronic and rubber components used in its vehicles.

However, the company will launch a number of products at the event, towing Toyota’s line by emphasizing on redesigned and new automobiles.

One of the attractions on the first day was its sports car, Aura NS-X. The original 1990 model was also launched at the Detroit show. The reshaped saviour of the company was showcased in the 2012 version of the event.

The NS-X was re-launched after a break of seven years. Honda’s CEO Takanobu Ito took keen interest while unveiling the sports car. He was in the technical team of the original NS-X back in 1990 and was glad to restart its production. The sports car will be manufactured at Honda’s new Ohio-based unit.

Moreover, the company also launched a fresh version of its sports utility vehicle, RDX and an all-new small sedan ILX, which is targeted at the young generation stepping into their professional careers.
