Today Honda has announced plans to debut a new prototype version of the upcoming economy car, which will happen at the end of this month at the 2010 Thailand Motor Expo. The latest vehicle builds on the previous Honda New Small Concept but represents vehicle packaging that is closer to the production model due next year.

While such vehicles may seem irrelevant to the U.S. market, changing economic trends and greater environmental awareness among new car shoppers may start to change the types of vehicles sold here, sooner rather than later. In fact, Honda used last year’s Los Angeles Auto Show to unveil a new minicar concept dubbed the Personal-Neo Urban Transport, or P-NUT for short, which we could envisage selling alongside cars like the Smart Fortwo and upcoming Scion iQ.
