Honda Element

After having been introduced in concept form, named the Honda Model X, at the 2001 North American International Auto Show, the 2011 Honda Element is going to be the final model year of production of the functional and innovative crossover utility vehicle. John Mendel, executive vice president of American Honda officially stated that the Element was a demonstration of the latest functionality that could result after thinking inside the box, as the Honda Element was developed from the inside-out. The 2003 model year provided innovative design, friendly interior and energetic performance, with more upgrades that ensured more power and safety, coming for the 2007 model year. The 2009 Dog Friendly Element accessory package was embraced by the Element, thus proving its position as a pet-friendly vehicle.
Since its introduction in 2002, December, more than 325,000 Elements have been sold on the territory of the United States.

2011 Will Be Final Model Year of Production for Honda Element


The 2011 Honda Element will be the final model year of production of the innovative and functional crossover utility vehicle, American Honda Motor Co., Inc., announced today. First introduced in concept form as the Honda Model X at the 2001 North American International Auto Show, the Element virtually created its own functional class and became an immediate favorite for small businesses, outdoor enthusiasts and pet owners. After a long life cycle, utility-seeking customers have more recently embraced other vehicles in the Honda lineup like the versatile and comfortable CR-V.


"The Element proved that ultimate functionality can often come from thinking inside the box," said John Mendel, executive vice president of American Honda. "It made boxy vehicle designs cool, and Element owners continue to enjoy its unique styling and unmatched versatility."


Developed from the inside-out, the Honda Element entered new territory when it debuted during the 2003 model year by providing a multi-functional cargo area, innovative and versatile seating, a durable and dirt-friendly interior, energetic performance and outstanding value. Major upgrades were made through the years including more power and safety features in the 2007 model year. More recently, the Element embraced its long-held position as a pet-friendly vehicle by introducing the Dog Friendly Element accessory package in 2009.


More than 325,000 Elements have been sold in the United States since its introduction in December 2002.
