The electric Honda that stole Frankfurt
And, yes, they’re going to build it
Isn’t this thing cute? When Honda pulled the covers o its UrbanEV Concept at the Frankfurt motor show, the motoring world shouted ‘BUILD IT!’ Thankfully, Honda was already planning to, and we’ll see the production version in 2019.
The design is inspired by the Honda N600 hatch and the irst-gen Civic, but there’s a bit of MkI Golf GTI in there too. Tech specs are light on detail, but it sits on a bespoke electric car platform and has a lightweight, high-density battery pack. Pull open the rear-hinged suicide doors and you step into an airy, clean cabin with a squircle steering wheel like the original Austin Allegro’s.
