Four years ago at Tokyo Auto Show Honda presented its plug-in hybrid limousine called AC-X (Advanced Cruiser Experience). As soon as it was presented visitors were positively surprised with this more than ”strange” car. Now after years of waiting Japanese manufacturer is actually working on new car which will be highly based on that concept from 2011. It will certainly experience some changes in exterior and receive more modern look but it will definitely keep basic characteristics from AC-X concept. The 2017 Honda AC-X will be powered by a combination of gasoline engine and electric generators.
Engine and specs
As the concept variation revealed, the 2017 Honda AC-X will have two engine options. There will be a 1.6 liter internal-combustion engine with 4 cylindrical tubes and will provide 127 hp and also an electrical motor with an optimal power of 161 hp. However, it is anticipated that the auto manufacturer will certainly select fuel-cell hydrogen modern technology in order to make these figures attainable.
There will probably be a 5 or 6 rate automated transmission gearbox, combined with both engines. There is no main word about the gearbox yet. The energy performance of this ride is most likely to be incredible in both variations, thinking about the specs of the 2011 concept variation. Honda has not formally spoken about the mileage numbers of the vehicle.
Extremely smooth and also futuristic look still doesn’t stand a possibility in contemporary auto markets and also the tale with AC-X isn’t really any sort of different. This implies that, unfortunately, also concept’s active the rules of aerodynamics will not make the production. Front bumper as well as side skirts were able to decrease themselves and also reduce the pain considerably, but new designing does not allow these excesses. New look brings sharper lines and far more production-friendly design which could be created straightaway. With it, 2017 Honda AC-X is expected to look fashionable, yet distinctive, specifically if makers choose to allow personalization from the get-go.
When it comes to the interior of the Honda is quite secret, however if you look from the exterior we can not even assume how many hi tech gadgets will be positioned in the log cabin Honda AC-X. We understand that it will certainly have automatic drive method Support System that will go a little deeper into the study of self-governing control. Wheel control of this system is the position on the control panel. Driver as well as traveler seat could slope. It is among one of the most comfortable and user-friendly we see when it pertains to the driver’s seat.

When it involves the price there is no official details. So the release date of this ride is still yet to be seen, but we expect it to arrive in showrooms in early 2016. As above mentioned, price variety of a brand-new AC-X is still an enigma. If Honda determines to alter principle’s powertrain to fuel-cell variation, prices may end up in $40,000 area or even higher, while excellent antique hybrid auto wouldn’t cost as significantly.
