Honda has revealed a new small concept car, cleverly named the Honda New Small Concept, at the New Delhi Auto Expo. It is a compact, five-door commuter, which Honda intends to sell in India and Thailand beginning in 2011. 

Honda states that it has a balanced center of gravity, seats five, and has an “Efficient Energetic Exterior” design.
No word yet on powertrains or pricing, but we can expect it to have smaller, fuel-efficient mills, and a competitive price for the small car segment. We doubt we’ll see this here in the U.S. anytime soon.

January 5, 2010 - Honda Siel Cars India Ltd. unveiled the Honda New Small Concept, a concept model for a new small-sized vehicle, at the Auto Expo 2010 in New Delhi. HSCI also announced plans to begin sales of a new model in 2011 based on this concept model.
For the Honda New Small Concept, a wide platform with a stable center of gravity was adopted to create a highly efficient compact size with seating for five people. With the "Efficient Energetic Exterior" design, the dynamic design of the Honda New Small Concept with front forward fenders highlight the presence of the vehicle.
Honda is planning to introduce a new model based on the Honda New Small Concept in 2011, in India and also in Thailand.
Honda will strive to provide a new small-sized vehicle that is beyond the expectations of customers in rapidly growing markets and offer it at an affordable price by leveraging Honda's global parts sourcing network.
