The very first spy shots of the production version of the Honda Jade all-naked in China. The Honda Jade will be launched on the Chinese car market in September, it debuted last month as a semi-concept on the Shanghai Auto Show. The Jade is design-wise based on the Honda Concept S that debuted on the 2012 Beijing Auto Show, and technically based on the platform of the third generation Honda Stream.
Very smooth lines here at the back! The Honda Jade will be made in China by the Dongfeng-Honda joint venture. Our sources tell us the Shanghai concept resembles the real thing for 99%. The Honda Jade will be powered by a 140hp 1.8 and a 170hp 2.0, a hybrid might join the line-up later. Price for the cheapest 1.8 will start just under 150.000 yuan.
