Honda (NYSE:HMC) today gave the world its first glimpse of the all-new 2022 Civic on Twitch, the world's leading live streaming entertainment service. The new Civic, shown in prototype form in a striking new colour, Solar Flare Pearl, showcases a fresh, sporty and upscale new look for Honda's iconic and immensely popular Civic.
The 11th-generation Civic draws inspiration from timeless elements of Honda design, including a low and wide stance, low beltline, clean and sophisticated detailing, and an open and airy cabin.
The prototype model unveiled today presages the arrival of an all-new Civic lineup, beginning late spring 2021, with the launch of the Civic Sedan followed by the sporty and personal Civic Hatchback, performance-focused Civic Si, and the ultimate high-performance Civic: Type R.
Leveraging its strong presence in esports and gaming, Honda's debut on Twitch is a nod to Civic's industry-leading and global appeal with young buyers. The 10th-generation Civic has
been an unparalleled success - Canada's most popular car 22 years running.
The 11th-generation Civic will build on that appeal with an even sportier, fun-to-drive new chassis, more powerful and fuel-efficient powertrains, multiple new Civic-first features and technologies, and further advances in active and passive safety features and performance.
"There are a number of reasons Civic is Canada's best-selling car for 22 straight years. Its quality and reliability are unmatched, it is among the safest vehicles in its class, it caters to a variety of needs and lifestyles, and is built in Canada," says Jean Marc Leclerc, President and CEO Honda Canada. "The all-new Civic will continue to be the standard for compact cars with enhanced styling, safety features and above all, driver enjoyment."
TGS Esports Inc. (TSXV: TGS) announced that, further to its news release of October 7, 2020 it has entered into a Share Exchange Agreement with Volcanic Media Inc., a leader in scholastic and grassroots Canadian esports.
The Acquisition is the latest step in TGS' corporate growth strategy and adds a scholastic division to the Company with a focus on events, leagues, and in-class programs for High Schools and Post-Secondary Institutions. It is expected that Volcanic will utilize Pepper Esports Inc.'s ("Pepper") platform and TGS' esports expertise to further the development of an all in one esports experience under the TGS banner.
Volcanic has been at the forefront of scholastic esports including awarding high school esports scholarships and creating inter-district high school esports leagues, both firsts of their kind in Canada. Volcanic have also started work on indigenous esports efforts, previously working with Binche Keyoh First Nations for pilot esports programs.
TGS also announced that, as part of this new partnership, all high schools looking to utilize Volcanic will be able to do so absolutely free with no fees paid by schools or students. Interested schools can reach out to Shawn Caldera: firstname.lastname@example.org.
"Taking the next step in this process with Shawn and his team is very exciting," said Spiro Khouri, CEO of TGS. "The opportunity to bring scholastic programs into the fold presents large opportunities for our company. The utilization of Pepper for these programs truly showcases that TGS is able to offer an all in one esports solution to anyone, regardless of age or location."
"Volcanic was created to provide high quality esports events in the scholastic space. Now being able to utilize Pepper's platform and TGS' expertise in events and production takes us to the next level. We cannot wait to connect with schools all over Canada and show what we can do, for free!" said Shawn Caldera, President of Volcanic.
