One of the big surprises at this year’s Frankfurt auto show was this retro looking Honda compact car called the ‘Urban EV’ concept. Not only was Honda able to keep the car under wraps right up to the unveiling, but the styling was a significant departure from what we expected of a future electric car designed for Europe.
Honda’s concept is already being earmarked for production as Honda management has confirmed its production. The company announced its intention to have the Urban EV launched by 2019. It’s part of the company’s “Electric Vision” strategy.
Honda wants to have a reliable, affordable electric platform on which to continue to build its fleet of highly sought after cars.
