With the 2017 Tokyo Motor Show coming up, we expect automakers from all over the world to be ready to present the coolest, most technologically advanced and weirdest models they have conceptualized and designed.
The Tokyo Motor Show is looking more and more interesting with the number of concepts lined up to be revealed. And one of the most recent ones that has been added to the list would be the Honda Sports EV Concept. As its name suggests, it will be an electric sports car designed with square taillights. This hints that the compact coupe might be related to the Urban EV concept, which they revealed at Frankfurt earlier this month.
So far, Honda has not given full details regarding the Sports EV concept, apart from it being a zero-emissions car and that it will have a friendly face. That actually gives us another reason to believe that the two concepts are somewhat connected. As you can see in the sketch, the Sports EV Concept has a retro and futuristic vibe that is quite attractive, thanks to its sleek roofline and bulging fenders.
Like the Urban EV concept, the rear and side windows give an impression that the Sports EV will have an extremely wide display on its dashboard. In fact, Honda already has a production model of the Urban EV for 2019. Well, hopefully, there will be a production version of the Sports EV by then too, which isn’t impossible.
Apart from its striking silhouette and its friendly face, the company also promises to deliver a feeling of joy and emotional unity to the drive. To be honest, the teaser concept image doesn’t give a ton of details as well, except for the more digital lights at the rear and smooth lines like the latest smartphones.
Like the Urban EV concept, the Sports EV is a retro-smart all-electric hatch that has a lounge-like interior, giant screens and rear-hinged doors. We can’t wait to see the production version of the Sports EV.
Honda will debut the Sports EV this October 25 at the Tokyo Motor Show, along with the Urban EV concept that had been mentioned earlier, as well as the CR-V JDM version. Other models that we can expect to see later this month would be the NeuV concept that was introduced to us in January at the CES in Las Vegas.
Aside from all these concepts, a number of motorcycles will be sharing the spotlight at Tokyo too, as the Super Cub motorcycle will be celebrating 60 years and 100 million units. And of course, to celebrate their successful journey, Honda will unveil the Super Cub 125C and a special edition Super Cub 110 to celebrate its anniversary.
