The word

Honda BRIO concept

The BRIO will be introduced in Thailand and India in 2011 and was teased last week before its unveiling at the Thailand International Motor Expo.

The mass-production model will include parts sourcing from Honda's motorcycle wing, already well-established in the Thai and Indian markets.

The BRIO will get better than 5L/100km (47mpg US), qualifying as an eco-car by the Thai government. It's an entry-level car starting at $13,250USD MSRP.

And so ...

Very interesting as Honda works to break into these emerging markets.
