Honda Bringing Off-Road Fit, Food Truck Van to Tokyo Salon

Honda saves best concepts for home show

  • Virtual event to be loaded with cool Honda Concepts

  • This is the Fit Honda needs to sell here


Next week is the Tokyo Auto Salon, and while it won’t have in-person visitors, it will have cool cars like these from Honda. A wonderfully Crosstrek’d Honda Fit a Honda N-Van that’s been turned into what might be the tiniest food truck.

The Concept Honda Fit e: HEV Crosstar Custom comes from Honda Design and it makes us extra disappointed that the new-generation Fit won’t be sold here. If this one looks extra unusual, that’s because it’s based on the Fit Crosstar, a slightly lifted, cladded, rugged-looking version of the car that’s sold in other markets including Japan and Europe.

While it might look like the evolution of the Suzuki SX4, this is a pretty cool little crossover. One that certainly has the off-roading looks to compete against the likes of Ford’s Bronco Sport or any of the other fashion-forward soft-roaders. The massive Yakima roof rack adds storage space to the already massive Fit, while the raised white letter Toyo Open Country all terrain tires sit perfectly on the black steelies with Honda bottlecap centers.

The second is the Honda N-Van, and it’s been fitted up to look like a classic aluminum-body food truck. It’s a wrap on the vehicle, but it does look like the van’s made of bare metal and that goes perfectly with the louvred accent lines on the side and the upright grille. The roof marker lights and faux rivets finish it off. Honda’s own translation for the name of this special calls it the Third Place Van, which is a nod to the cafe being your third home after work and, well, home. The menu offers coffee, cappuccino, americano, and your choice of sandwich or cookie.

The full reveal of these models happens on the 15th, and Honda says it has more custom vehicles in store.
