Honda Unveils Futuristic Electric Concept Car

Hello If you are new here, you might want to to the RSS feed for updates on this

Like many guys, I was about 13 or 14 I was into drawing the of the future. To my hormonal and inexperienced of a prepubescent brain, the cars I were clearly superior to the people-movers that adults to appreciate. But in reality, the cars I we d all be driving when I got to be 30 looked like they plopped out of an episode of Robotech than anyone other than a teenager could take

Which is why, when I saw the for Honda s newly unveiled EV, I thought, Wow! That is my 13 year old self would thought was totally wicked!

The 3R-C, set to debut at the Geneva Show, is a three-wheeled electric car that represents Honda s of the future for small EVs fitting in the nether land between a and a car.

Although there are few details right now, says the concept s batteries and drivetrain would be mounted low the 3 wheels to keep the center of low and improve stability. The vehicle has a canopy that folds to cover the cockpit while it s and when the three-wheeler is moving, the transforms into a windshield.

Honda says the driver is significantly more protection in the than in a motorcycle due to the enveloping bodywork and doors, which the threat from side and improve weather protection. The also has some lockable space on the front, which claims provides significant for luggage and cargo.

Granted, the is only a concept, but it represents I see as a strange emerging design among many major manufacturers to present ultra-skinny that look weird. We saw it last year with s Land Glider concept and VW s L1. I don t have anything against ecocars far from it actually I even buy one myself.

But I just wonder why the manufacturers to present them in such an package? If the goal is to spur why make them look

Autocar UK speculates that The for this type of vehicle is to be related to potential legislation in the US could split lanes on roads in two for use by these narrow seaters. What potential that is, I don t know. Even if s true, and three-wheelers are the trend of the let s make some that the person could drive without feeling foolish.

In the meantime, let your 13 year old revel in the Robotech coolness is the 3R-C.
