H Honda δεν θα μπορούσε να μην παρουσιάσει κάποια πρωτότυπα στην εντός έδρα έκθεση, σε αυτή του Τόκιο. Σίγουρα αυτά που θα μαγνητίσουν τα βλέμματα των επισκεπτών θα είναι τα Small EV Concept και AC-X Concept.
Το Small Sports EV Concept είναι ένα μικρό σπορ ανοικτό διθέσιο αυτοκίνητο, και όχι ο αντικαταστάτης του NSX που πιστεύαμε ότι θα δούμε εκεί. Λεπτομέρειες για τον κινητήρα του δεν έδωσε αλλά είναι σίγουρα ηλεκτρικό με την Honda να δηλώνει ότι είναι ένα fun to drive αυτοκίνητο, επιτυγχάνοντας παράλληλα εξαιρετική περιβαλλοντική απόδοση. Πιθανότατα να δείχνει το πως θα μοιάζει το νέο Beat, που φημολογείται ότι θα παρουσιαστεί το 2013.
Το δεύτερο που θα τραβήξει τα βλέμματα είναι το AC-X Concept και μας δείχνει το πως θα είναι η δεύτερη γενιά του FCX Clarity. Πρόκειται για ένα 4-πορτο plug-in υβριδικό με coupe σχεδίαση που προσφέρει άνετη και ευχάριστη οδήγηση τόσο σε αστικές όσο και σε υπεραστικές μετακινήσεις.
Παρόν θα δώσει και το Micro Commuter Concept, ένα ηλεκτρικό πόλης με φουτουριστικό σχεδιασμό, το RC-E concept, μια πρωτότυπη ηλεκτροκίνητη μοτοσυκλέτα που φορά ένα σασί από μηχανή 250 cc αλλά και τα Motor Compo concept, E-Canopy Concept, το Townwalker, το, N Concept αλλά και την πλατφόρμα Smart Home System, που έδειξε στην φετινή JAMA και αποτελεί ένα σύνολο οικολογικών λύσεων για μελλοντικά σπίτια έτσι ώστε να μειωθεί κατανάλωση ρεύματος που θα έχει ως αποτέλεσμα την μείωση των εκπομπών CO2. Η πλατφόρμα διαθέτει έξυπνες εφαρμογές εξοικονόμησης ενέργειας, έξυπνες τεχνολογίες και χρήση ανανεώσιμων πηγών ενέργειας.
Περισσότερες λεπτομέρειες για το καθ’ένα μπορείς να βρεις στο δελτίο τύπου που ακολουθεί.
