GENEVA: Honda to show one-person battery electric vehicle concept
Created by European designers working at Honda’s Research and Design facility in Milan, the 3R-C features a battery electric drivetrain that is mounted low in the three-wheeled chassis to give a low centre of gravity, while the safety shell seat features high sides to improve safety for the occupant and reduce the threat from side impacts.
There's also a clear wind-shield that provides the 'pilot' as Honda terms it, with significant protection from the bodywork and doors. This is then used to cover the driver’s seat while the vehicle is parked.
In front of the driver is a lockable boot area, which gives significant secure storage for luggage or other items.
Also on the stand will be Honda’s production fuel cell electric vehicle, the FCX Clarity, which is being leased by customers in Japan and the US.
