All-electric Honda Urban EV concept has been debuted at Frankfurt; and it’s not just a phantasmal dreams. Takahiro Hachigo, Honda President, promised a production version to hit the European market in 2019 eventually. Being a part of Honda’s electrification vehicles plan, the Urban EV showcases Honda’s vision for EV era and future connectivity.
Sporting a dinky look, the compact hatchback concept bridges the gap between electric power and retro styling inspired by 70’s Old Continent’s hatches design. The main – revealed – feature is a giant panoramic wrap-around interactive display to provide some information like the battery level, along with a floating dashboard console, finished in wood. Riding on entirely new platform, the Urban EV features a lightweight battery pack and several Honda’s hi-tech driver assistance systems like Power Manager or Automated Network Assistant. A full list of specs including the power output or powertrain has yet to be confirmed.
