Check the kick in the rear quarter of the 2011 Honda Odyssey concept. They’re calling it a “lighting-bolt” beltline. Presumably it is meant to provide the segment with more electricity, given that the whole three-row crossover category seems to have shorted-out the growth in the minivan segment.

The vehicle has a lower roofline than the current production model—63.3 in. high, which is down 1 in.—and a 1.4-in. wider stance (78.5-in. wide, overall). Certainly a little more aggro than the current Odyssey. But then it is a minivan. . . .
