Car News - ORDER BOOKS FOR PRODUCTION VERSION OF HONDA URBAN EV CONCEPT OPEN 2019

Order books for a production version of Honda’s Urban EV Concept to open from early 2019
•New model will be Honda’s first mass-produced battery electric vehicle sold in European region

Honda took the opportunity at its 2018 Geneva Motor Show press conference to confirm that order books for a production version of its Urban EV Concept will open in early 2019.

Speaking during Honda’s 2018 Geneva motor show press conference, Senior Vice President, Honda Motor Europe, Philip Ross confirmed the news, “A production version of this highly acclaimed concept will be introduced to Europe during late 2019, and in response to the positive feedback to this model, we expect to open order banks for the Urban EV during early 2019.”

Urban EV Concept

The Urban EV Concept previews Honda’s first mass-produced battery electric vehicle sold in Europe. The Concept features a simple and sophisticated design, slim A-pillars and wide windscreen that appears to sweep around the entire front of the passenger cabin.

Inside, four occupants can be accommodated in comfort across the concept car’s two bench seats, which are finished in different materials to create the ambience of a lounge. The front row is upholstered with a natural grey fabric and embellished with contemporary wood finish accents. The dashboard features a wrap-around screen that extends into the doors. The dashboard display presents a range of vehicle information, while the extended door screens function as the car’s side mirrors through digital camera displays.

The Urban EV Concept will feature as part of Honda’s booth at 2018 Geneva Motor Show from 8-18 March.

I wonder what the production model will be like, I do hope they keep the retro look and not replace it with ghastly giant triangular bits of black plastic like on all the latest Honda models.

A lot of Mk1 Golf in that design to my eyes - should sell well in Europe if they can keep the looks similar

I like that a lot.

It's like the rear of a Saxo and the front of a MK1 Golf, not a bad combo tbh.

A smaller badge would look better though.

Now you've ruined it for me, I prefer the Mk1 Civic RS.
And is that a honking big tablet I see behind the windscreen?

Aye, huge screen, bench seats and cameras for mirrors.

These are the bits that probably won’t hit the shelves though I reckon.

My initial reaction was ooh that looks cool and then reality set in - fancy having to clean those rims!

Looks to me like the front of a MK1 Golf and the rear from a Peugeot 205
