The Honda Elysion is a minivan with seven or eight seats, that was initially sold only in Japan as a competitor to the Toyota Alphard and the Nissan Elgrand.
This MPV was first seen as a concept car called Honda ASM at Tokyo Motor Show in late 2003 and finally made into a production half a year later with some cosmetic adjustments to its headlight, front grill and interior to make it more commercially friendly. Officially launched in mid-2004 for Japan domestic market.
The Elysion was offered with either the 2.4L DOHC direct injection K24A with i-VTEC producing 160 PS (117.7 kW; 157.8 bhp)
or the 3.0L SOHC J30A V6 i-VTEC producing 250 PS (183.9 kW; 246.6 bhp).
The V6 was also available with “VCM” or Variable Cylinder Management.
Which is shutting-off 3 cylinders on one bank of the V6 when reduced power is needed such as during cruising or driving down hill.
The only tell-tale sign that the engine is running on 3 cylinders is when the ECO green light at the panels light up.
There are 6 different trim and grades plus 2 special AERO HDD editions.
Three grade of 2.4L front-wheel-drive models are available, namely M, G and X.
There are also three 3.0L front-wheel-drive models, VG, VX and VZ. Four-wheel-drive is optional on all models.
Honda was inspired to name the vehicle the “Elysion” from the classical Greek word Elysium, or heaven.
