Tokyo, Japan – Honda announced the world premiere of the new Fit subcompact car and two new concept cars at the 40th Tokyo Motor Show, to be held October 27 to November 11, 2007. In all, Honda will unveil 18 new vehicles.

The new Fit will go on sale in Japan in late October. Honda has sold over two million Fits worldwide since its introduction in 2001.

The CR-Z (Compact Renaissance Zero) concept car is a “next generation lightweight sports car equipped with Honda’s original gas-electric hybrid system which achieves both clean performance and a high level of torque”, according to a Honda news release.

The PUYO is a fuel cell vehicle “based on out-of-box thinking to provide fun for both the vehicle owner and people around them as well.”

Also on display will be a model of the next-generation i-DTEC diesel engine first announced in September at the Frankfurt Motor Show.
