Here’s one for your Friday that we missed back in February: the Honda N-Truck and N-Camp concept combo.
Japan’s space-conscious and parking-regulations-exempt penchant for tiny cars knows no bounds, from regular commuter options through to tiny trucks and a handful of legendary coupes and roadsters.
This latest offering to the motor-show gods is Honda’s take on hitting the highway in retro cool, if Lilliputian, style.
Based on the same series that launched the likes of the Japan-only N-Box, N-Box Slash and N-One (among others), Honda’s new concept combines a tiny pickup with an only slightly larger camper.
Honda says the N-Camp trailer will sleep two adults in a loft-like arrangement, leaving a lower living space to be arranged as desired.
Mechanical details on the N-Truck have not been revealed, but, as is required under Japan’s ‘Kei Class’ regulations, power is likely provided by a 660c engine producing no more than 47kW.
Honda has yet to confirm production plans for the N-Truck and N-Camp combo, but whatever it decides, you can bet you won’t see them in Australian showrooms.
More’s the pity, really.
