So far Geneva, which hosts the best auto show in the world in our opinion, is shaping up to be more about green and less about performance. Honda, for example, looks to have a an EV prototype on hand.
If it’s anything like recent Honda electric vehicle prototypes, we may be in for a treat.
Back in 2017, the Honda Urban EV Concept made the rounds at the Frankfurt and Tokyo Motor shows and to go straight to the point, not even Honda could have imagined the immense amount of positive press their little EV concept would garner.
Heavily inspired by the 1st generation Civic hatchback, the car’s cute and quirky design, not to mention sub-4-meter length, made us nostalgic and longing for simpler and better days. Somehow, the modest style, cutting-edge technology and absolute urban-ness of the car all work perfectly together. And best of all, Honda has confirmed that they will produce the car!
Spy shots of the little EV circulated online late last year. The biggest changes between the concept and the spotted prototype is that it will sport five doors and likely seat five passengers. The round LED head- and taillights are present and accounted for which is very good news.
The “real” prototype will break cover at this upcoming Geneva Motor Show in early March. We’ll be there to report back on this most incredible annual event so stay tuned.
