Honda’s new hybrid-only Jazz and Jazz Crosstar styles and the Forza 750 scooter have been awarded very coveted Pink Dot Awards 2021 in the ‘Product Design’ classification. These internationally renowned accolades are only bestowed upon the best high quality solutions that excel in solution, brand and communication structure.
The once-a-year Pink Dot awards are decided by a panel of fifty intercontinental industry experts who check, appraise and go over just about every entry to highlight fantastic structure and innovation. The judging standards are reappraised and adapted just about every 12 months to replicate the hottest technical, social, economic and ecological demands.
“We have experienced a different effective 12 months, receiving a number of awards in the Solution Structure classification of the globally-recognised Pink Dot structure awards,” said Toshinobu Minami, Chief Functioning Officer, Structure Heart, Honda R&D Co. Ltd.,
“Since our institution, we at Honda have generally aimed to replicate the notion of ‘making customers’ day by day lives more enjoyable’ in our solution structure, and we believe that that receiving these awards is a recognition of our results in undertaking this. We will keep on to observe this unchanging theory, thinking ‘outside the box’ to structure solutions that present ‘surprise and excitement’ to customers’ lives.”
The Jazz e:HEV and Jazz Crosstar e:HEV are aligned with Honda’s commitment to electrify 100% of its European styles by 2022. The Jazz was developed to encapsulate Honda’s ‘Yoo no bi’ philosophy, which recognises the attractiveness that exists in everyday things honed more than time to make them even more attractive and ergonomically fulfilling to use. The Jazz structure also employs Honda’s ‘Man-Maximum, Equipment-Minimum’ (M/M) growth theory, which is dependent on the perception that the objective of technological know-how and structure is to serve the wants of the driver and passengers. The outcome is a car or truck that brings together functionality and usability, expressed via progressive options like Magic Seats, but maintains a smooth and present day appearance.
The rugged Crosstar variant was made to broaden the enchantment of the product, presenting a more SUV-fashion proposition, oriented towards those with active life. Greater presence will come from a daring front grille structure, sizeable black trim and fashionable side sills and roof rails. The Crosstar-distinct alloy wheels, which widen to the rim, produce an improved sense of stability and enrich the sturdy in general visible result.
Launched in the Autumn of 2020, the brand-new Honda Forza 750 crowns the celebrated Forza vary of luxurious scooters, which merge ‘GT’ amounts of comfort and ease and street presence with sporty, agile functionality in a supremely fashionable, top quality package deal. The new flagship Forza is no exception, with stylish, roomy styling that offers enough leg space and wind security for comfortable significant-pace cruising, coupled with exceptional aerodynamics thanks to a smooth front-end structure and trim rear portion. It is also developed for easy use all over town, with stable handling and effortless acceleration from its torquey, gasoline-productive 745cc twin-cylinder motor.
The classically Forza element-loaded spec sheet incorporates many driving modes, Honda Selectable Torque Control, Honda’s special-in-motorcycling Dual Clutch Transmission (DCT), complete LED lights and Honda Smartphone Voice Control. The low 790mm seat top, 22 litres of underneath-seat luggage place – ample to accommodate a complete-face helmet – and USB-C charger socket enrich the everyday usability.
