Honda is one of the most popular brands out there in the global auto market and there is no way you will mention Honda without naming its popular models such as Accord or Civic on sale. Surprisingly, none of these popular Honda products ranks as the best-selling model in their place of origin, Japan.


The N-Box has been the best-selling Honda car for the past 3 years in its home country, Japan

Have you heard about the Honda N-Box? For three years now, this boxy Honda car has been the best-selling model in Japan. This model, also known as Kei car, comes cheap, quite easy to maintain and the smoothness in parking it is as smooth as anything you could imagine. According to history, the origin of Kei cars could be traced all the way back to the post-Second World War era, when many Japanese were unable to afford a full-sized vehicle, hereby resorting to purchasing of motorcycles. To prevent the sudden death of the auto industry and to cater to the needs of private citizens and small scale businesses, this Kei car was brought into life as a sustainable alternative to solving those varying problems.
