Honda To Bring Three EV Concepts To Tokyo Motor Show
The Micro Commuter Concept is built for urban use. It’s s a two-seat, all-electric commuter vehicle, similar to the Renault Twizy which goes on sale next year. But, unlike the Renault, Honda has added a compartment to store its Motor Compo electric scooter on board.
With the CR-Z, Honda aimed to prove hybrids could be desirable and fun to drive. The Small Sports EV concept (pictured) takes this a step further, wrapping a next-generation electric powertrain in a sleek sports car body. So far, Honda has only revealed a sketch.
Finally, the AC-X will be Honda’s first plug-in hybrid. It features an “engine drive mode” to prioritise power output for high speed driving, and automatic mode to suit more laid back usage and higher fuel economy.
The new models will be displayed alongside a raft of Honda’s electric mobility technology, including the FCX Clarity fuel cell vehicle, electric scooters and carts and the Honda Smart Home System, designed to reduce household CO2 emissions.For more of the latest industry news, click here.
