Honda Sports EV Concept

Honda is saying very little about this super cool, very petit sports car.  Like the Honda Urban EV Concept that debuted last month in Frankfurt and is promised for delivery (in Europe) in 2019, the Sports EV Concept rides on a short wheelbase and could easily be set up to power the rear, rather than front wheels. Think about the much beloved S2000 convertible. What we really like here is Honda’s total do-over of its busy styling. Every once in a while a carmaker has to start from a clean slate. Do that with an alternative powertrain, too, and you attract a whole new generation to your brand. With average Honda buyer age creeping north (J.D. Power says the average Civic buyer is 50), Honda needs this approach.
