The Honda Urban EV Concept, Electric City Car.
Honda’s electric vehicles will now feature an emblem that’s backlit in blue, while at the front of the Urban EV Concept, there’s a digital panel between the headlights that can display multilingual messages and charge status. Inside the car, the automaker says outward visibility is excellent, thanks to the slim A-pillars and wide windshield.
Two bench seats can accommodate up to four passengers, while the console and rear-seat area are trimmed with wood accents. The doors open coach-style, like on a Rolls-Royce, although we don’t expect that feature to make its way onto the production model. Details about its propulsion were not revealed with the design, but the Honda Automated Network Assistant concierge service is part of this concept.
The company says the system “learns from the driver by detecting emotions behind their judgments,” and bases future recommendations off of that. Like so many other automakers, Honda thinks we want to talk to our cars in the future, too.
