The electric new car concept from the Japanese company actually stole the Frankfurt Motor Show
The Frankfurt Motor Show is a great platform for us to see the latest vehicles. The 2017 show also revealed many great vehicles in which there were many electric vehicles too. However, one new car in particular stole the show – The new Honda Urban EV seems like a strong rival for the BMW i3, which is set to be launched in the next year.
The Honda Urban EV Concept immediately became a hit after being unveiled at the show. The car is all-electric and the crowd particularly liked the retro styling by the company along with cute proportions. The new electric vehicle’s styling reminds of old-fashioned vehicles. There are two LED panels on the front and rear side of the vehicle, which can greet the passengers and display information.
The dashboard of the vehicle has a huge touch screen panel, which stretches all the way. The new Urban EV will enter production in the year 2019, which will make it a direct rival of the compact BMW i3. Majority of the new car concepts that are revealed do not go into production that soon.
