Coming to the Geneva Motor Show
Back in 2017, Honda showed off one of the coolest electric car concepts we’ve seen in a while. It was called the Urban EV, and despite being electric, it packed some serious retro style. At the time, Honda said the Urban EV previewed a future production car, but there was no telling how much it would change before then. Thanks to this new sketch, we now have a better idea.
So far, Honda’s only released this one sketch, so we don’t have a lot to go on. The concept’s name hasn’t even been officially announced yet. But even from this angle, you can see a lot of the Urban EV concept remains. In the release, Honda even specifically mentions the Urban EV when describing the styling.
One thing we do know is that Honda’s new EV concept will be shown at the Geneva motor show in March. Odds are, we’ll see a few more sketches or teasers before then, so we’ll probably have a better idea of the design by the time March rolls around.
It’s also worth noting that Honda calls this car “a prototype version of its new electric vehicle.” Since Honda’s concepts tend to be thinly disguised production cars, what you see in Geneva should basically be what you’ll get when this car goes on sale in Europe later this year. Here’s hoping that car eventually leads to a production version of the Sports EV concept, which was said to be based on the Urban EV.
