Nostalgia for things retro have been dominant as of late and Japanese automaker Honda looks to continue the trend with the unveiling of its Urban EV Concept at the 2017 Frankfurt Motor Show.
Inspired by the first generation Honda Civic that debuted in the 1970s, the vehicle reflects its heritage with a compact hatchback profile while inheriting modern appeal with its sleek construction and new tech. The car is part of a dedicated EV platform and a Power Manager Concept that not only keeps the car charged, but will also charge your home when needed.
For the interior, an expansive touchscreen display which spans nearly the entire interior dashboard is one of the focal points, as it even extends into the doors, and those display feeds from the car’s two wing mirror cameras for checking space around the vehicle.
Honda CEO Takahiro Hachigo announced that the Honda Urban EV Concept would hit the road in Europe in 2019 first, however, no word on its arrival stateside.
