The elec­tric Honda that stole Frank­furt

And, yes, they’re go­ing to build it

CAR (UK) - - Insider -

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.
