Honda Launches Third-Generation Freed in Japan: A New Standard for Everyday Comfort and Safety

Tokyo, Japan – June 27, 2024 – Honda Motor Co., Ltd. is set to launch the all-new, third-generation Freed in Japan on June 28, 2024. The new model aims to enhance daily life with its grand concept, “Smile: Just Right Mover,” focusing on supporting users’ everyday needs and emotions. The price starts at 2,857,800 yen (INR 14.82 lakh).

Sales Expectations

Honda plans to sell 6,500 units of the Freed monthly in Japan.

Packaging and Design:
The new Freed maintains its easy-to-handle size, increasing in length by only 45 mm to accommodate the e:HEV two-motor hybrid system. The first-row seats have been redesigned for better usability, improving accessibility to the second-row seats. The vehicle offers clear forward visibility with a horizontal, noiseless dashboard, an in-wheel meter display, and larger quarter windows for third-row passengers. The design enhances driver visibility and pedestrian safety with a repositioned door mirror and front pillar base.

Interior Innovations:
The third-row seats are lighter and thinner, maximizing cargo space when flipped up. The interior is designed for simplicity, featuring a 7-inch TFT LCD meter and a center panel that allows intuitive operation of vehicle controls.

Dynamic Performance:
The Freed’s performance aims to ensure a smooth, comfortable ride. Enhanced body rigidity and reduced suspension friction contribute to stable handling and comfort on rough roads.

Powertrain Options:
The Freed comes in hybrid versions with the e:HEV system and gasoline versions with a 1.5L DOHC i-VTEC engine. Both versions offer Real Time AWD for stable driving in various conditions.

Safety Features:
All models come standard with Honda Sensing, which includes:

  • Collision Mitigation Braking System (CMBS)
  • Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) with Low-Speed Follow
  • Lane Keeping Assist System (LKAS)
  • Traffic Sign Recognition, and more.

Variant Designs:
The Freed will be available in two types:

  • Freed Air: A sophisticated and simple design.
  • Freed Crosstar: A dynamic and rugged design for an active lifestyle.

Wheelchair-Accessible and Lift-up Seat Variants:
The Freed Crosstar offers wheelchair-accessible and passenger lift-up seat variants. These include features like an electric winch, Super Flex Slope, rear heater ducts, and an air conditioning unit for enhanced comfort. The lift-up seat variant offers fully electric seat adjustments for ease of use.

Honda’s all-new Freed aims to provide a versatile and supportive driving experience, ensuring safety, comfort, and convenience for all users.
