Honda Element production ends
Honda has announced that 2011 is the final year of production for its highly-functional, boxy crossover utility vehicle - Honda Element. Showcased for first time as a study model under the mysterious name Honda Model X at the 2001 North American International Auto Show, the Element will have to pass the baton to newer and more versatile, spacious and comfortable rides from the brand's broad line-up, like the fresh CR-V.
John Mendel, executive vice president of American Honda shares: "The Element proved that ultimate functionality can often come from thinking inside the box. It made boxy vehicle designs cool, and Element owners continue to enjoy its unique styling and unmatched versatility."
From its official market launch in December 2002, Honda has sold more than 325,000 Elements across the territory of United States.
