Honda trademarks ZSX, probably for NSX

by SpeedLux

While there have actually been lots of rumors going back to 2008 about a mid-engined spots cars by Honda, a 2015’s report was provided one of the most detailed information about what appeared to be a scaled-down variation of the NSX hybrid supercar. Honda may have added some credibility to the rumor by just recently filing a trademark application for “ZSX”.

The trademark application was sent out to the European Union Intellectual Property Office previous month and is undoubtedly near to the NSX classification. The Australian outlet likewise reports that an unnamed source within Honda claims the ZSX.

The confidential worker likewise declares that the ZSX will be provided as a coupe and a hard-top convertible variation, with both being powered by the automaker’s 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine from the Honda Civic Type R. Just like the NSX, the ZSX is reported to obtain electric motors on the front and rear axles.

Former reports match the confidential source’s claims, as the ZSX was anticipated to be a replacement for the Honda S2000 that put and end to the production in 2009. It now seems like it’ll be more of a mini-NSX, with reports pointing to one electric motor powering the rear wheels, while 2 motors would be on the front axle. Patents from last year, which are pictured above, match the rumors of a mid-engined sports vehicle.

The ZSX trademark is just for Europe right now, while the automaker’s previous patents and hallmarks consisted of the United States. Just time will tell if “ZSX” really stands for a cars, or if Honda really goes through with its strategies.
