First official look at hot new Civic Type R next month…

As good as the new-generation Honda Civic is, it’s the Type R version that we are really looking forward to driving.

Now comes confirmation that the production-ready version of the sporty Civic will debut officially at next month’s Geneva Motor Show.

Honda telling us this morning that the 2018 Honda Civic Type R has been engineered to deliver the most rewarding drive in the hot hatch segment.

Set to enter production in the middle of the year, the Type R will feature Honda’s 2.0 litre VTEC turbocharged petrol engine.

Other Honda highlights slotted in for Geneva include the Honda Clarity Fuel Cell and NeuV.

The fuel cell vehicle delivers a 620km range and its arrival in Europe comes as Honda looks to drive infrastructure investment in hydrogen refuelling infrastructure in the region.

While the Honda NeuV (pictured below) is a fully electric concept car that has been designed to be utilized as an automated ride sharing vehicle when the owner is not using the car.
