Bring on the dashboard-width screens
This teaser image shows off a large screen that expands across the dashboard. It appears Honda is taking a cue from Mercedes, which offers a large display that merges the instrument cluster and infotainment system together. However, this screen appears to have not two, but three displays, with controls for navigation, a personal voice assistant, smartphone connection, and more. On the EV Menu, drivers can access the car’s charging schedule.
Underneath the screen and atop the dashboard, there is a volume knob, home button, and other controls. Below these, you’ll find horizontally stacked air vents and Honda’s typical climate control setup.
Honda says the prototype takes after the Urban EV concept that debuted at the Frankfurt Motor Show in 2017. The similarities are clear in this teaser image Honda released last month showing the prototype’s front end.
Details are slim at this point, as we don’t know the car’s powertrain or even its official name. We should learn more when the prototype electric vehicle is revealed on March 5 in Geneva.
