Numerous automakers are trying to tackle the problem of personal urban mobility, including Honda with its latest concept, the 3R-C, which will be introduced to the public at the next month’s 2010 Geneva Motor Show. The battery electric-powered single-seater takes a look at how future mobility problems in urban areas might be solved using clean technologies.
Back at the LA Auto Show 2009, Honda introduced the Honda P-NUT concept, and now they’ve unveiled an entirely new urban transport concept. Thankfully, Honda replaced the geeky acronym naming with a number-letter scheme: The Honda 3R-C.
Honda’s 3R-C is an enclosed single-seat three-wheeler powered by a lithium ion battery mounted low in the chassis to help keep the vehicle stable. The design, created by Honda’s Milan studio, even features a lockable cargo space in the area ahead of the driver. The low slung seating position would seem to offer little in the way of forward visibility, but the general idea seems a step in the right direction.
We’ll see what other details Honda offers on this concept next week at the 2010 Geneva Motor Show. But right now you can check some photos from the gallery below. [via WorldCarFans]
