Honda has a very strong tradition in being pioneers in a lot of automotive technologies. They are very proud of being the first company in the world to achieve a lot innovative technologies. I recall whilst working at Honda in the 1990's I had this poster in my bedroom called 1st in Honda technologies I wish I had kept that poster it was damaged by dampness through the walls, you cannot get that poster anywhere. In hindsight I wish I had framed it rather than stuck it on the wall, I can still recall that poster so vividly... anyway I digress on the poster It had NSX the first production car in the world to have a aluminium body, the Prelude with its 4 wheel steering, the solar car atleast two dozen other worlds first! Now I found this site by JSAE –aka Japanese Society of Automotive Engineers which bring you closer to what Honda achieved since in its conception and see what the entire Japanese automotive industry did on the whole. 240 Landmarks of Japanese Automotive Technology One my favourites innovation was the first ever Honda Electro Gyrocator in 1981, which we know now as Honda Navi or Sat Nav. Have a look at the other innovation and enjoy the Honda History.
