The current Odyssey, made in China by the Guangzhou-Honda joint venture. In June last year we heard that Honda applied for patent in China on the US-version of the Odyssey, which is a much bigger and more up-market car. Honda will likely bring that one to China as well, as an import and under a different name, aimed at the high-end MPV market. And to make the party complete, Honda will also start building the Elysion MPV in China at the Dongfeng-Honda joint venture.
