Honda has unveiled a bold new transport concept at the 2009 Los Angeles Auto Show. The Honda P-NUT Personal Urban Transport Concept is a three-seater ultra-compact designed to compete with the SmartCars of the world, thanks to a future-forward design sensibility and a focus on short-range urban transport. This concept uses the front-end space to place the driver front-and-center, with two fold-out seats for passengers in the rear section. As a result, the

Honda P-NUT is one part motorcycle, one part ultra compact car. Honda says the footprint of the P-Nut is similar to a city car: it’s a scant 3400mm long, 1750mm wide and 1439mm tall.

While we appreciate the concept and functionality of the Honda P-NUT, we’re not too big on the design. It should be the task of the designer to create a progressive concept like this that, well, a normal driver would actually want to be seen in. But aside from the awkward exterior, the Honda P-NUT is a nice addition to the concept cars that are driving the shape of the wheels of tomorrow. [via CarMagazine]
