Honda has unveiled the newest addition to its Japan-only N Series of mini-vehicles, the N-One sporting an economy-minded 660-cc engine.
But the focus of the Japanese automaker’s N-One is a spacious cabin with seating for four with a lightweight, yet rigid body. Those looking for some luxury can opt for the N-One Premium model which comes with a high-quality exterior and interior “beyond those of any models in the mini-vehicle category,” according to Honda.
Though actual performance figures weren’t revealed, the N-One comes with either a 660-cc DOHC naturally aspirated engine, or a 660-cc DOHC Turbo powerplant. Both engines are mated to a continuously variable transmission (CVT). Despite not announcing horsepower and torque figures, Honda says that the N-One Turbo has comparable performance to a vehicle with a 1.3-liter in the class.
The N-One is available in front-wheel drive or four-wheel drive configurations with pricing starting at around $14,300 (1,150,000 yen) based on today’s conversion rates, while a top-of-the-line four-wheel drive N-One starts at around $21,200 (1,707,750 yen).
