Honda's electric EV-N: a three-door Trabant nT?

The EV-N is described simply as a “battery electric vehicle” and Honda isn’t willing to say much more than that until the TMS kicks off later this month.

However, images of the car have revealed that Honda’s U3-X unicycle can be stowed away inside a door-mounted cubbyhole. Presumably the idea is that you drive, say, to town in the EV-N and then whip out the U3-X for your journey around the shops.

Honda will also demo a selection of hybrid vehicles at the show, including Skydeck – a multi-purpose car for carrying up to six passengers - and Loop, a portable communications tool allowing people and mobility devices to ‘speak’ to one another.
