Honda has pulled the covers from an all-new, electric-powered concept at the Frankfurt Motor Show.
Called the Urban EV Concept, the show car previews technology and design for an upcoming production model built on a new platform.
“This is not some vision of the distant future; a production version of this car will be in Europe in 2019,” Honda President, Takahiro Hachigo said.
The concept is 100mm shorter than the Jazz city car and features low and wide proportions. While at the rear, the Honda logo is backlit in blue which the carmaker says will be a feature of the company's future production EVs.
A wide windscreen and narrow A-pillars dominate the front design, while rear-hinged doors add another styling dimension.
Inside, the concept has room for four occupants across two bench seats and Honda has applied wood finishes throughout.
A large floating dashboard design houses the steering wheel and a minimalistic layout, with only a few button controls and a large display screen.
Honda also detailed its vision for a future in-car concierge functionality that detects the emotions behind the driver's decisions and then applies what it has learned to make new choices and recommendations.
