Vehicle in the news
Make/Model: 3R-C concept
Manufacturer: Honda Motors
The concept is a 3-wheeled, single-passenger urban commuter that is all electric. It's the latest of a series of futuristic concepts that Honda has released over the past year.
This concept was designed at the Honda research and development center in Milan. The concept has low-slung batteries and drive train components to give it a low center of gravity for both performance and stability.
When parked, the car "folds" to enclose the driver's compartment and anything stored inside. When operating, the canopy is open, enclosing the driver in a motorcycle side-car-like design. A flexible, plastic canopy can be used to enclose the convertible during inclement weather.
Honda promises more details, such as motor and range, at the Geneva show.
And so ...
While concepts at Honda are often innovative, like most car companies, most of their concepts never see production.
