The Japanese car market is very specific because it is sold in that country
numerous models that we cannot meet in other countries. It's about the so-called
“kei” microcars, which are practically a means of transport for
overcrowded Japanese megalopolises, where every square foot is parking space
Domestic manufacturers in Japan sell large numbers of kei models, and one of them,
The Honda N-Box, the most sought after car in the country for the third consecutive year.
In 2019, the N-Box finished with a record 253,500 deliveries, bringing it
the title of the best-selling model last year, reports B92.
The Honda N-Box as a model has been around since 2011, when the first generation was launched
of this vehicle. The successor, and current model, arrived in 2017, and has been ever since
most wanted car among buyers in Japan. Honda has been around for almost nine years
sold a total of 1.7 million of these vehicles.
The base model N-Box in Japan starts at 1,411,300 yen (around 11,600
, while the most expensive version of the N-Box Custom costs 1,996,500 yen (around 16,400
euro). Customers can also charge for all-wheel drive, which adds extra lift
the price of these vehicles.
In addition to the N-Box, Honda also sells other kei cars in Japan, such as
are the N-One, N-WGN and the S660 roudster.
The kei car category was established in 1949. According to the latest
1998 regulations do not allow kei cars to have an engine over 660
“cubic meter”, while the power of the drive unit can be up to 64 hp.
In addition, the car must not be more than 3.4 m long or wider than 1.48 m.
