Based on a report coming from Japan, Honda has apparently decided to put the S660 concept into production.

It was November 2013 when Honda unveiled a spiritual successor for its legendary Beat kei car at the Tokyo Motor Show and now it seems they made up their mind to start assembling the vehicle at home in Japan at the Yokkaichi factory. Hopefully the production version will keep the concept's design intact as it was a very pretty little roadster drawing its styling cues from the EV-STER concept.

The Honda S660 is programmed for a 2015 market launch and will have to compete with another resurrected popular kei car, the Daihatsu Copen. There are also some rumors about a Suzuki Cappuccino reboot for 2016 so we might see more of these models but chances are the automakers will offer them only in Japan.
