    Honda's downhill in Europe started in 2014-2015. What happened? Well, they stopped selling two most important vehicles in Europe: Civic (EU spec) and Accord. No manufacturer can compete without these models. Nissan and Honda are playing very dangerous gamble by offering only SUVs and compact cars. Why did Toyota grow in Europe? They made Avensis and Auris just for Europe.

    Honda was never big in Europe though, but yes, difference between Toyota and Honda was 3x before, now it is Toyota having 5x sales:

    Very cool. Thank you for sharing! I guess that lines up well with the UX trademark we saw... was it UX 200e or something similar?

    Is both CHR and Izoa getting EV? ALPHARD 埃尔法的HEV车型、全新MPV车型将首次亮相中国市场。What this part says? Does the all new MPV (flagship?) for Chinese market refer to Alphard or Lexus MPV or completly new model?

    Sucks that I will miss the launch events, I will be in the U.S. during that time.

    Interesting that both the Alphard and Vellfire will lose the 3.5L V6 options, which I suppose will become a Lexus LM exclusive. Makes a lot of sense though since now Lexus wants that fat profit.

    Refresh this year for Chr or until model year 2021? I would like the chr to gain the 2.0 liter dynamic force engine from the corolla to replace its current engine. Would also like to see a hybrid be offer. Awd too finally. Both full led headlights and taillights too. All this for the Us market. That will be a worthy refresh.

    all of that could happen, but it would then have $5k higher price... so it would be more expensive than some reasonable Rav4 trims.

    Which is why it wont happen for US market.

    Europe should get higher power engine as option later this year, should be a facelift.

    Full digital display, seems nice :)

    Prismatic cells, nothing new as they're the chosen format for all the batteries
    Maybe 60kWh? (11 modules with something like 32 cells each)
    AirCooled, better than Leaf but I see it as an limitation to rapid charging, should top out at 100kWh like Leaf e+
