HONDA CONFIRMS GLOBAL PREMIERE OF PROTOTYPE VERSION OF ITS NEW ELECTRIC VEHICLE AT GENEVA MOTOR SHOW

Honda has confirmed the global premiere of a prototype version of its new electric vehicle at the Geneva Motor Show in March 2019.

Honda’s new electric vehicle is developed with a focus on functionality and purpose and the prototype sketch demonstrates this through its clean, simple and unique design. The image highlights a clear link to Honda’s Urban EV Concept initially shown at the 2017 Frankfurt Motor Show.

The debut is a further demonstration of Honda’s ‘Electric Vision’, a commitment that two thirds of European sales will feature electrified technology by 2025. A mass production version of the car will be on sale later in the year.

The automaker has also released an early design sketch of the pre-production study, and it’s pretty clear we’re dealing with the electric city car previewed by the Urban EV Concept at the 2017 Frankfurt Motor Show. This will be the Honda Urbiq.

As spy photos have shown last year, the production model will switch from a three-door to a five-door layout, with the interior offering five seats instead of the concept’s four. Furthermore, the doors will be front-hinged and not rear-hinged as on the Urban EV.
