Honda announced that its ZEST minicar, what appears to be a Scion xB fighter on a slightly smaller scale, will go on sale in Japan on March 1. The little box's claim to fame is the low-floor platform technology, which results in lots of interior room given its diminutive size, along with a low tailgate. Like the aformentioned xB and similar vehicles, the car will likely become a success story with handicapped consumers: a wheelchair accessible model goes on sale starting March 17.

Honda’s i-DSI engine or i-DSI turbocharged engine mated to a four-speed transmisison will haul it through the streets of Japan by its front two wheels. The company is also bragging that some models put out 75-percent less emissions than legally requirement in Japan at the moment.
