Pics: All-new Euro/JDM Accords (TSXs for you yanks) on a Transporter in Japan

These two photos came attached to the following e-mail from TOV reader J. Chiok

This may not be of deep concern but if you are curious, some spy shots have been taken of the new model.

Pics from Hobidas Auto website in Japan (http://www.hobidas.com/auto) and posted by SMZ32 and the1 of carspyshots.net

Straight off the factory at Sayama, Japan and being transported in a truck (you can tell that it is in Japan because the truck has some Japanese text written on it)

These units are inbound for the E.U. (you can tell because of the presence of a rear foglamp as well as the fact that the steering wheel is on the left-side meaning it's LHD).

Also........
Here's is what I think will be the possible shipping route of these vehicles:
Sayama, Japan (origin of manufacture) -> Swindon, England (Honda EU factory guys will do inspection work of the said vehicles) -> Geneva, Switzerland (for the motor show)

That's all. :)

Thank you again for your concern.


The new JDM/Euro Accord will officially debut at the upcoming Geneva Motor Show.
