I am not sure what the 500 represents. Does it mean shipments or production....and are all cars being shipped this way?

I believe they are using that port to ship 500 cars a month to the west coast I would think they are shipping to the east coast from Veracruz and Laredo should be the path they follow to ship to the center of the US, the article is for that specific port not honda production, however there is evidence that they are already on its way to the US and yes that does look like a price sticker on the window

The stickers are the Monroney stickers that include the fuel economy, features, and yes price. Unless there is a higher resolution image somewhere, your chances of getting anything useful out of the image is < 0.

Well it looks like they learned a lesson from the Fit. That press embargo ended on April 9th last year with the model to "go on sale later this month", which we know turned out to be June. Looks like they will be on US soil before the embargo and announced sale of the vehicle.


Hopefully pricing will be leaked soon!

"ENHANCE " *click* :nerd: ...um, it just looks like a bunch of squares I can't see ****.
Um yes sir, because this is real life, not science fiction. ...dam.

EDIT: I attempted to actually "enhance" cause we all know we're curious. The results were ...well, I don't know what I was expecting.

It's because the image is 300x450 it'll take ALOT of fixing to make that pic enhance enough to read that doc I'll give it a shot but idk if it'll be any better than your attempt.

For what it's worth, the price info on that sticker is in the middle section, to the left of those black bars. The features are listed on the left side, gas mileage info on the upper right, environmental impact on the lower left.

Too fuzzy for me to read any of it, but I wanted to make aware of where to zero in for info if anyone knows how to properly enhance it.

HR-Vs to Port of Davisville, RI?

North Atlantic Distribution in the Quonset Business Park in North Kingstown, Rhode Island started receiving Fits last year at the Port of Davisville from the Honda plant in Celaya, but I have not seen any local press about the HR-V.

I can drive by tomorrow, but don't know if I will be able to see anything.
