Takanubo Ito says no to V8 engine and rear wheel driving
And just when we though that, maybe the new Honda’s CEO will reconsider the decision of previous CEO Takeo Fukui plans for the NSX successor, a shocking statement by Ito has put as down. Takanubo Ito said that “I don’t think we need a classic front-engine, rear-drive car. It would be meaningless to emulate what other companies have done for more than five decades. We are considering incorporating new engines, motors, transmissions and chassis into mid- to large-sized hybrid vehicles.”
He has also confirmed that V8 engines and rear wheel driving are not a part of Honda’s future.
