Honda unveils Urban EV Concept

Attached Image Frankfurt Motor Show debut for pure-electric Honda Urban EV Concept, previewing tech and design for future models

Attached Image The Honda Urban EV Concept has been revealed at the Frankfurt Motor Show, previewing the brand’s all-electric future. It’s not a fantasy project, though, with bosses claiming a production car based on the concept will debut in 2019.

Attached Image Unveiled by Honda president Takahiro Hachigo, the company’s CEO said: “This is not some vision of the distant future; a production version of this car will be here in Europe in 2019.”

Attached Image Honda hasn’t revealed battery output, power figures or performance data for the EV Concept, nor is there any detail on prospective range or charge times. Given its intended use, however, we expect a modest 200-mile range, mated to the latest fast-charge technology.

Attached Image Its dinky design is reminiscent of the original seventies Honda Civic, with its round headlamps, thin A-pillars and short front and rear overhangs. The interior is quite unlike anything we’ve seen from the maker before, with a minimalist design and huge dash-spanning central screen.

As well as teasing a specific model, various details hint at the future of Honda design. The backlit blue logo is a feature that will appear on each of the company’s forthcoming EVs, for example. The interactive display between the headlights can display messages, too, including greetings and advice for other road users, as well as charging status updates when the car is plugged in.
