Let's go ahead with the ABC-Cars. The B - part II: The #Honda #Beat ! The Beat was built between 1991 and 1996, a bit more than 33.000 cars were sold. Honda bought the design from Pininfarina in Italy. And as I said, the ABC cars went into the middle of the Japanese recession. In the first year the Beat was selling excellent. But in the following years, sales collapsed. In contrast to the #Autozam #AZ -1 and the #Suzuki #Cappuccino , Honda used no turbos on the small three-cylinder, which can be found in the rear. It gets 63 bhp out of the car. You can imagine that the car weighs almost nothing. But all ABC-Cars performed really well.
It is interesting that Honda, in contrast to Suzuki and Mazda/Autozam, sells a Kei Roadster again today. In 2015 Honda introduced the Honda S660, which not only follows the tradition of the S500, but also that of the Honda Beat. Verdict: It's a Honda - what can go wrong?
