Honda shows Geneva-bound E Prototype

Honda's Urban EV throwback hatch will debut at Geneva, though under a new name, "e Prototype".

Speaking of black panels, the concave ones between the front and rear lights are clear hints to the Urban EV concept. Although still a prototype, it looks very much production-ready and is expected to go on sale, largely unchanged, before the end of the year. This means the electric vehicle will have "dynamic driving characteristics", says Honda, while the extra space up front means the front wheels can turn more, giving it a tiny turning circle similar to the Renault Twingo. Rather than traditional materials like leather, Honda has used a melange-style sofa fabric; the flat floorplan emphasizes the cabin space. Our experience with other EVs at city-appropriate speeds suggests the e Prototype should feel like a happy little chap around town. There's also a wood-like trim on the dashboard top and around the transmission controls. The screens could potentially be a far reach and too complex to be controlled only by touch, but Honda says the system "has been designed for ultimate usability" and uses "next-generation digital aids" for multitasking and menu navigation.

It's a miracle we've even seen this vehicle.

For example, Honda's next-generation digital aids will be presented alongside numerous car's comfort and infotainment controls for easy multi-tasking and in-menu navigation.

Iran's president rejects resignation of his foreign minister
President Donald Trump abandoned the nuclear deal, Zarif's conservative opponents accused him of selling out his country. Hardships have triggered waves of nation-wide protests, with calls for both Rouhani and clerical leaders to step down.

According to Honda, the e Prototype was deliberately designed with focus on advanced functionalities and goal, as well as engaging driving dynamics. It will be rear-wheel-drive, have a battery capable of more than 200 kilometers (124 miles) of range, and be capable of recharging 80 percent of its charge in a half-hour on a fast charger (of unspecified wattage). The electric motor sends power to the rear wheels to propel it along. We kinda buried the lede there, didn't we.

Honda is planning on two-thirds of its European sales being electrified by 2025, and the e Prototype has been designed with that goal in mind. The production auto will only be sold in Europe initially, with production beginning later in the year. The e Prototype represents Honda's "Electric Vision" strategy for Europe, and a production model is said to be introduced later this year.

More confusing is that the production vehicle is likely to be called something different still.
