Honda to unveil Sports EV at Tokyo Motor Show

Honda has confirmed that it will reveal not one, but three new vehicles at the 2017 Tokyo Motor Show, including its brand-new electric sports car, the Sports EV Concept. 

In addition to introducing the Honda NeuV, Urban EV Concept and new CR-V to the Japanese market, Honda will unveil two new Super Cub motorbikes: a special anniversary Super Cub 110 and the brand-new Super Cub 125C.

Sports EV Concept

Sporting a sexy silhouette, friendly face and – ahem – “supple body”, Honda’s all-new electric car combines an EV power unit with AI technology to deliver “a feeling of joy and emotional unity”. Stay tuned to The Engine Room for more details from the Tokyo Motor Show on 25 October.

Urban EV Concept

First revealed at CES in January 2017, the electric NeuV comes equipped with a built-in AI engine called HANA (Honda Automated Network Assistant). It’s an autonomous ride-sharing vehicle – and might just revolutionise the automotive industry. Here’s why.

Fifth generation CR-V

Also making its Japanese debut at the Tokyo Motor Show: the all-new CR-V, now incorporating Honda’s two-motor hybrid technology i-MMD (Intelligent Multi-Mode Drive). The good news? It’s coming to Europe sooner than expected. Click here to find out more.
