Japanese automaker Honda is set to release its new model in the Indian market. Recently, the company has launched a new trademark ‘Elevate’ to the Indian market. The Honda N7X Concept is said to be the new 7-seater SUV from the company that first introduced to the world.
It is reported that the company will launch this SUV in the Indonesian market as the next generation BR-V. No information about this has yet been officially shared. The company has discontinued the BR-V in the Indian market, so it can also be offered here as a replacement.
The patented images of this upcoming new SUV have already leaked on the internet, showing that the 7-seater SUV is similar to the N7X concept. The company is expected to present its production model in August. In addition, it can be released for sale on the market by the end of the year.
The leaked patent image shows that the production version of the Honda Elevate will come with the brand’s Lane watch system, which is also found in the new City sedan. Honda’s Lane Watch System monitors the left side of the car to reduce driver’s blind spots. It makes running easier.
The 7-seater SUV will share platform and mechanics with the company’s famous City sedan. Honda claims that the new SUV has the best body style and is designed to be able to drive all kinds of road conditions. In this, the company can use a 1.5-liter naturally aspirated petrol engine that produces 121bhp of power and 145Nm of torque. This engine comes with a 5 speed manual and CVT automatic gearbox.
Honda has yet to announce the launch of the N7X Concept based SUV in India. If it is released in India, it will compete with Hyundai Alcazar, Tata Safari and MG Hector Plus. Currently, the company sells 5 models in the Indian market, including two generations of Honda City, Amaze, Jazz and WRV.
