Honda introduced the Honda Odyssey in three body styles, such as the Honda Odyssey (international), which is a minivan marketed in Japan and other countries in the world, Honda Odyssey (ATV), which is an all-terrain automobile and as the Honda Odyssey (North America), which is a minivan marketed primarily in Canada and in the United States.
The Honda Odyssey is a small van produced by Honda, the leading Japanese auto manufacturer and the vehicle is in the market for sale since 1994, all over the world. Currently, the Honda Odyssey is in its fifth and fourth generation in Japan and North America respectively.
At first, the Honda Odyssey had been conceived and designed in Japan, during the wake of the economic crisis of Japan during the 1990s. This in turn inflicted severe constraints on the size of the vehicle and general concept, dictating the manufacture of the minivan in an accessible facility with minimum modification. The consequence was a more petite minivan, in the category a compact multipurpose vehicle, which was well acknowledged in the Japanese home market and less acknowledged in the North American market. The first generation of Honda Odyssey was sold in Europe under the name, the Honda Shuttle.
Subsequent generations of the Honda Odyssey deviated to mirror the market variations, and Honda constructed a plant in Lincoln in Alabama, including the skill to produce bigger models. Since the 1999 model year, Honda has sold a smaller Odyssey in Japan and in other worldwide markets, and a bigger Odyssey in North American market. Honda also offered the bigger Odyssey in Japan between 1999 and 2004, as well, but under the different name, the Honda LaGreat.
The Honda Odyssey (ATV) was a lineup of single-seat, four-wheel drive, all-land vehicles manufactured between 1977 and 1989 by the Honda Corporation.
Honda manufactured its FL250 Odyssey between 1977 and 1984, equipped with an air-cooled engine of 248 cc capacity. Honda included a roll cage in 1982, close to a ridge buggy or sandrail. Initially, the FL350R was planned to release during spring 984, but it was delayed pending early 1985. Honda improved the two-blow engine to 342 cc, and later it was decreased to 329 cc during a recall. This engine was mounted at the back the driver, and it had the 6.7:1 compression ratio, a 1.26-inch (32 mm) capacitor free ignition, a throat Keihin carburetor, and an incorporated electric starting. To perk up the stability, the track was increased to 1,080 mm (42.5 inches) front and 1,200 mm (47.2 in) rear in 1985. Wheel travel was increased to 110 mm (4.3 inches) front, 150 mm (5.9 inches) rear. Additionally, automatic disc brakes were changed with double hydraulic drums in the front and with a single hydraulic back disc.
The Honda Odyssey (North America) is a small van designed and marketed by Honda, the leading automaker in Japan. The Honda Odyssey has been in the market for sale since 1994. At first, the Honda Odyssey (North America) had been conceived and designed in Japan, during the wake of the economic crisis in the country during the 1990s.

The end result was a small van, in the compact multipurpose vehicle class, which was well acknowledged in the local automobile market of Japan and less well acknowledged in North America. The first generation of the Honda Odyssey (North America) was sold in Europe under the name, the Shuttle.
