Driven - - Tech Tune-Up -

Honda has re­vealed an all-new elec­tric ve­hi­cle, the Ur­ban EV Con­cept, at the 2017 Frankfurt Mo­tor Show, show­cas­ing ad­vanced tech­nol­ogy within a straight­for­ward yet so­phis­ti­cated de­sign. The con­cept car is built on an en­tirely new plat­form and sets the di­rec­tion for the tech­nol­ogy and de­sign that will ap­pear on a fu­ture bat­tery elec­tric Honda pro­duc­tion model. Key parts of the pow­er­train de­vel­op­ment will in­clude a high-den­sity, light­weight bat­tery pack, in­te­grated heat man­age­ment, and the evo­lu­tion of en­ergy trans­fer func­tions– both to and from the ve­hi­cle. We love it for its quirk­i­ness and retro sen­si­bil­ity.
