Honda to launch new Grace hybrid sedan

Today, Honda held a press conference at their head office in Tokyo and debuted a new hybrid sedan called Grace.

Grace features Honda's HV System (hybrid system) using a 1.5L engine and 7-speed DCT (Dual Clutch Transmission). The HV system is also used on the Fit Hybrid and Vezel Hybrid and caused product recalls of those cars multiple times. Therefore, during the press conference, Honda received many questions about concerns of the quality of Grace.

However, Honda proudly stated that the system is reliable in quality. According to them, they postponed the release date for a half year to examine the system and to verify quality through a new strict quality control regimen. They stated that they are ready to deliver high quality hybrid vehicles at a modest price.

  • Price: ¥1,950,000~
