Plans to launch premium MPV to replace Odyssey

According to a report by the Nikkan Automobile News on December 9, 2022, it was pointed out that in 2023, Honda's high-end MPVs made in China will be introduced to Japan.

Honda's high-end MPV Odyssey will be discontinued following the suspension of vehicle production at the Sayama plant. In order to meet the needs of sales stores and customers, it plans to import high-end MPVs from China to maintain the product lineup.

China's next-generation Odyssey and new-generation Elysion will be launched in late 2021

China Honda will release a new generation of Odyssey on December 27, 2021, and a new generation of Elysion on December 30, 2021.

The new-generation Odyssey launched by China's Honda is a minor facelift of the fifth-generation Odyssey in Japan, and the new-generation Elysion is the top model. The price of the new-generation Odyssey in China starts at 235,800 yuan, and the price of the new-generation Elysion in China starts at 279,800 yuan.

Both are gasoline-electric hybrid models equipped with the latest Honda SENSING and Honda CONNECT 3.0 and adopt e:HEV. It is also a popular MPV model in China.

What is the "premium MPV" that will be imported from China?

It is still unclear what models will be introduced from China to Japan, and the MPVs manufactured and sold by Honda in China are only the new-generation Odyssey and Elysion. It is reasonable to speculate that one of them will be sold in Japan in 2023.

These two models are both high-end MPVs in Honda. If we discuss the top MPV models in China, the imported models may be the new generation of Elysion.

Will the "Elysion" car name be revived in 2023?

Honda Elysion Prestige S

Honda Japan sold an MPV named Elysion from May 2004 to October 2013. The Elysion sold in Japan in the past had a larger body size than the Odyssey at the time, and was positioned as a top-level MPV in Honda's products.

The Elysion high-end specification Prestige is equipped with a 3.5LV 6-cylinder engine with a maximum output of 300 horsepower. Elysion Prestige not only has a luxurious interior, is equipped with a powerful engine, but also exudes a unique atmosphere of "excellent driving performance".

If China's new generation of Elysion is sold in Japan, the car name will be revived in Japan after 10 years.
