Honda Urban EV set to debut at Geneva auto show

The Urban EV concept that Honda unveiled at the 2017 Frankfurt auto show is well on its way to production.

Honda is set to make a major splash at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show by debuting the newest iteration of its due-for-production fully electric prototype, but it turns out that won't be the only EV on the stand.

OR defensive coordinator Jim Leavitt leaving program
Leavitt spent two seasons with the Ducks after coming over from Colorado, but he was not hired by OR head coach Mario Cristobal. When Willie Taggart abruptly left OR for Florida State in December 2017, that opportunity seemed closer than ever for Leavitt.

With the outside having been redesigned for production, Honda has now given us a quick peep inside the upcoming EV's interior.

Honda will be showing off a new EV prototype at the Geneva Motor Show next month and now the company has released an interior photo of this new EC. A flat trim piece made of wood is a classy touch, as is the dainty steering wheel with a small horn button. We also can see two small screens on the far sides of the dash, which will be for the Urban EV's mirror-replacing exterior cameras. The overall look of the interior is reminiscent of retro-futurism: It's filled with modern technology, but it's as if a designer from the 1970s came up with the idea of what an electric Honda in 2019 would look like, using cars like the original Civic CVCC as inspiration. Honda retained a handful of buttons, including a volume knob and HVAC controls on the center stack. Unlike the concept, however, the production version will have five doors instead of three, which makes sense for a practical zero-emissions city auto. Honda has not confirmed if the Urban EV will be coming to Canada. Previous teasers showed the vehicle with only one door handle, so two versions are likely.
