DETROIT – The all-new 2018 #honda #odyssey minivan will make its global debut at the 2017 North American International #auto Show on January 9. The 5th-generation 2018 #honda #odyssey has been completely redesigned and will feature new powertrain technology, sophisticated styling and showcase a new suite of innovative features, making it the ultimate in family-friendly design and packaging. The #honda press conference will take place at 12:00 p.m. EST on January 9, 2017.

An official teaser sketch of the all-new #odyssey was released today, along with four "teaser scribbles" from children of the Ohio-based #odyssey Development Team. These "scribbles" represent bold and youthful design, but the company admits adopting these futuristic illustrations "as is" from these doodling designers could present a variety of real world challenges, so more testing and validation will be required.   

"We wanted to have a bit of fun by sharing some of the drawings from children of the #odyssey team members, since they were inspirational in shaping the family-friendly direction of the all-new #odyssey," said Chad Harrison, chief engineer at #honda R&D America and the development leader of the new #odyssey.

Through five generations, the #honda #odyssey has consistently met the evolving needs of American families. The most popular minivan with individual American car buyers for six years running, the #odyssey is leading again in 20161.  In addition, the #honda #odyssey has been the most popular minivan with under-35-year-old buyers in every year since 20102, and American car buyers have purchased nearly 2.5 million #odyssey minivans since its 1994 debut.
