Honda Aircraft Company claims that the light jet will not only go faster and higher than its other products but will also be at least 20% more fuel efficient than other lightweight jets.

Those getting a seat inside can expect a plush experience with Honda offering three cabin layouts. The first layout offers four seats for passengers with two and two facing each other. The second layout has only two seats for a more exclusive experience. The third layout gets a couch apart from the four passenger seats.

Targeted at elite customers, the HondaJet 2600 Concept, if and when it does hit production cycles, can be a viable option to cover large distances without the need to halt for a re-fuel. And because of its improved efficiency, it could also prove to be a cheaper alternative when compared to lightweight or even mid-size private jets currently on offer.
