The production version of the SUV was originally scheduled for Announced in August It was originally at the Gaikindo Indonesia International Auto Show (GIIAS). However, due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, GIIAS was postponed to November.
After a series of delays, Honda Indonesia plans to launch a mass production version of the N7X before the end of the year, but it has been advanced to September 21. This is done to take advantage of the extension granted by the Indonesian government to reduce the luxury tax for cars under 1,500cc.

N7X will be Honda’s response to the popular Toyota Avanza, Daihatsu Xenia and other three-row mid-size SUVs sold in Indonesia.
In terms of styling, the familiar Honda design cues of the concept are expected to be brought to the production car, and we think it will eventually look like a smaller version of the CR-V.
The production-specification Honda N7X will use the same 1.5-liter gasoline engine as Honda City and some other global models of the brand. The power and torque output of the engine should be approximately 121hp and 145Nm, respectively. Transmission options will include 5-speed manual and CVT automatic. However, this model seems unlikely to get a hybrid system.
