Honda has unveiled the S660 concept on the eve of the 2013 Tokyo Motor Show.

With the S660 concept Honda is providing a preview of an upcoming kei-car for the Japanese market that will go on sale sometime in 2015. It looks as if they designed the car by taking many styling cues from the EV-STER concept showcased two years ago at the same motor show. Honda removed the electric powertrain of the EV-STER and replaced it with a 3-cylinder 660cc turbo engine rated at 64 bhp (48 kW) sent via a seven-speed CVT.

The production version will feature a fully retractable roof and will be sold exclusively in Japan. There are some reports indicating Honda plans to sell the car in other areas of the world with a turbocharged 1.0-liter engine outputting 100 bhp (74 kW).
