Read on for all you need to knowThis year's New York motor show features a number of important debuts; Land Rover will officially take the wraps off the new Range Rover Sport, the Mercedes CLA 45 AMG is being premiered and Infiniti will show its latest QX60 SUV. Here's the definitive Autocar list of the show cars.
    Acura MDX
    The seven-seat SUV from Honda's premium arm will offer front-wheel drive for the first time. Expect the styling of the third-generation car to closely mirror the recently seen concept.
    Honda Accord Plug-In Hybrid
    The Accord range-extender will be the most efficient saloon on sale in America, with an EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) fuel economy figure of 115mpg. There are currently no plans to introduce the Accord Plug-In to Britain.
    Honda Fit Hybrid
    In other markets, the Honda Jazz is known as the Fit. The EV offers a range of 82 miles and the electric motors develop 189lb ft of torque. As with the Accord, the Fit/Jazz EV appears unlikely to arrive in Britain.

    I wonder who is blocking the Plugin cars being sold here Honda Europe of Honda UK? :Search:

    I can't see why these cars should not be launched here, there are people who don't want diesels on all their engines. If options were there then people will be receptive.
