Honda Concept Vehicles for the 2019 SEMA Show
The annual Specialty Equipment Market Association show in Las Vegas kicks off next week. Ahead of the event’s launch, we’ve received a few several photos of the Honda concept vehicles for the 2019 SEMA show. This year’s crop of concepts covers a lot of ground and includes up-fitted versions of the Honda CR-V, Honda Ridgeline and Honda Passport. It’s important to point out that we don’t if any of these accessories or body kits will be available for sale at dealerships like Meridian Honda. However, our team still thought people would still like seeing these examples of our manufacturing partner stretching their creative muscles. If there is anything available in our showroom you’d like to take a closer look at, make an appointment with a Meridian Honda product expert today. (more…)

Does Key by Amazon work with Honda vehicles?
We don’t know if you feel the same way but being able to buy things through Amazon has really made our lives noticeably easier. However, as convenient as Amazon deliveries have made things, there is always not a small bit of trepidation when we get that notification that a package has been dropped off. Even though we unquestionably trust our neighbors, the danger of porch pirates stealing our packages is always in the back of our mind. A new partnership between Honda and Amazon should take much of that worry out of the equation. So, does Key by Amazon work with Honda vehicles? In a word, yes, but there are few more details you need to know before opting into this service. Let’s take a look. (more…)
Will Honda be adding a new electric vehicle to its lineup?
As we get closer to the prospect of eliminating fossil fuels from our lives, automakers like Honda need to stay ahead of the curve when it comes to developing the next stage of vehicle technology. So, will Honda be adding a new electric vehicle to its lineup? This is a good news/bad news situation. Yes, Honda will be sending its new electric vehicle concept into production. However, it appears as though the all-new Honda E platform will NOT be coming to the United States. Motor Trend magazine published a brief look at what the automaker’s newest electric vehicle will offer to owners outside of the U.S. With any luck, the powers that be at Honda will bring this vehicle, or at least the EV technology to American dealerships, like Meridian Honda in the future.

Is the Honda Pastport a real thing?
One of the longest-running tropes on the internet is a healthy dose of tomfoolery on April 1. Since today is April 1, the Meridian Honda Blog thought it would be helpful to clear a few things up. Is the Honda Pastport a real thing? While it would be a bold move for an automaker to release a vehicle with super retro features, the Honda Pastport is not real. Honda is having a little fun with the recent resurgence in 90s nostalgia on April Fools’ Day 2019. The product experts at Meridian Honda thought they could get in on the fun by profiling the Pastport. If nothing else, it brought a lot of us back to our childhoods which was also a fun little trip down memory lane.
