Just what I'd want in an EV... now if the price would reflect the lower battery capacity and smaller size of the vehicle, you'd have a winner.

Wish manufacturers would drop the gimmick "sport mode" from all vehicles. I'd rather have a button that changes the braking modes than mucks with throttle rates. Sport mode buttons should only exist for cars that adjust suspension characteristics and shift points of the automatic transmission.

Does it have a frunk? I'd need to know 6 bags of groceries would fit in there without occupying seat space.

Too bad it's never coming to America; we never get the good stuff.

Well, we did get Tesla first. Some places still don't get Teslas.

This car wouldn't sell well here because it isn't a CUV. Maybe in a decade the fad of better handling will be en vogue instead of the fad of slightly taller vehicles.

Holy crap, Honda is actually going to make it. This was the only of their concept cars I found interesting recently.

Now they just need to bring it to the US. That and the S660.

Looks like a brick for aero.

The initial concept was a lot punchier, but also a lot more bricklike. They've really improved the aero quite a bit over that, at the cost of looking less aggressive and more toylike.

Looks like a VW Rabbit to me

I don't care much what the car looks like, so long as the shape serves a function like cargo space or aero.

Toylike would be a good word to describe it.

Electric cars need all the aero they can get to minimize battery pack size and maximize range. Honda could've easily gone with a much more aerodynamic design without being too radical and probably gone with a smaller battery pack, increased the range, or both.
