It has received overwhelming feedback from Thai customers since it first launched. Last week, Honda created another new phenomenon by offering advanced technologies available in a city car for the first time with the new Honda City e:HEV. It is the first full hybrid car in the segment that comes with the Sport Hybrid i-MMD system and Honda SENSING advanced safety technology, together with many other premium technologies for safety and comfort. We also launched the all-new Honda City Hatchback, a city car with a 5-door hatchback style that combines the great utility of Honda's spacious rear storage with the superb driving performance of the 1.0-liter TURBO engine, and is fully equipped with functions that can serve all lifestyles. These two new models perfectly complete Honda's lineup for "The City Series."
