The automaker states that the concepts are a preview for models focused on Chinese customers and that their Beijing appearance will be their official world premiere.
Along with the announcement, Honda released these two teaser sketches which show the outline of a sedan and a hatchback.
Comparing the sketches with previously revealed concept and production models from Honda, it’s likely that the sedan concept is a preview of the Chinese market 2013 Honda Accord, which Honda has already previewed with a coupe concept in U.S. specification at the 2012 Detroit Auto Show.
The hatchback concept, meanwhile, appears to share many lines with the European market Honda Civic and is likely to be a preview of the Chinese version.
No other details have been released so we’ll have to wait until the 2012 Beijing Auto Show’s April 23 opening day.
Sharing Honda’s stand at the show will be the CR-Z, Insight and Fit Hybrid, while the upmarket Acura division will be showing off the NSX supercar concept and new ILX and RDX models. Honda has also confirmed that the new Acura NSX will be sold in China once the car is launched in around three years, while the upcoming RLX flagship sedan will launch next year.
