Tokyo Motor Show: Honda premieres electric Sports EV Concept
Honda has unveiled a new electric sports car at the Tokyo Motor Show: the Sports EV Concept. Sporting a sexy silhouette, friendly face and supple body, Honda’s electric car combines an EV power unit with AI technology to deliver “joy and emotional unity to the drive”. Exciting, right?
In March, Honda unveiled its ‘Electric Vision’ to equip two thirds of all European cars sold by 2025 with electrified powertrains. The premiere of the Sports EV, along with its close cousin, the Urban EV Concept, not only shows that the vision is coming into focus, but that Honda is leading the way with electric innovation.
Speaking at the Tokyo Motor Show, Honda President and CEO, Takahiro Hachigo, said that the future was bright for electric vehicles: “Honda has been working on the development of various technologies and products, which will contribute towards the realisation of a carbon-free society and making good progress in making our gasoline-powered vehicles cleaner and more fuel-efficient. In the area of automobiles, we have been expanding the line-up of hybrid vehicles and will continue to strengthen hybrid, plug-in hybrid and EV models from here forward.
“With our products equipped with electrification technologies, Honda will continue striving for the realisation of our enduring passion to realise the joy of helping people and the joy of driving. Honda will continue taking on challenges to expand the life’s potential of our customers.”
