Honda Won’t Be Bringing This Little Beauty To The US

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Is the automaker making a grave mistake? When we first saw the Honda S660 at the 2013 Tokyo Auto
Show, we fell in love with the tiny two-seater. Sure it’s minuscule, only has
room for two and isn’t that powerful, but we thought it could’ve done exceptionally
well in the US. Yet, according to Executive Vice President of American Honda John
Mendel, there are no plans to bring the 660 to the US. “I wouldn’t put my chips
on that,” Mendel told Automotive News when pressed about the two-seater’s fate in
the US.

There were reports indicating that Honda was considering
bringing the vehicle to the US, but the automaker now believes the vehicle
is too small since it’s a staggering two feet shorter than the new Mazda MX-5. “When
the practicalities of the market come in, and the car is only so big, that might
not be the best car for the US market,” stated Mendel. “It might be better for
India or China or somewhere else.” With Honda on the verge of introducing the
Civic Type R to the North American market, we we’re hoping to see some new sporty
editions to the automaker’s lineup. Do you think the miniature S660 would’ve
done well in the US?
