Honda has unveiled an all-new urban electric vehicle concept at the 2017 Frankfurt Motor Show with future production scheduled for 2019.
The concept car is built on a completely new platform, and sets the direction for the technology and design that will appear on a future battery electric Honda production model.
The Urban EV Concept features an electric charging cable connection on the bonnet and its main dashboard screen presents a range of vehicle information including remaining battery level.
The concept was officially introduced by Honda Motor Co. president and CEO, Takahiro Hachigo, during his press conference speech.
He said: “This is not some vision of the distant future; a production version of this car will be here in Europe in 2019.”
Alongside the EV concept is Honda’s Power Manager Concept, which is a smart system that can store energy more efficiently, releasing electricity generated by renewable sources back into the home or selling it back to the grid.
