If we didn't know better [...], we'd say Honda lifted a few pages straight out of BMW's "i" Series handbook when it came to detailing its 2011 Tokyo Motor Show-bound Micro Commuter Concept car.
Take a close look and you may discover some similarities in certain key design elements (note: not the shape of the car but the details) between the Honda concept car and BMW's i3 and i8 studies such as the multi-layered surfaces and the light-blue accent hues.
If you've read our previous stories on the Honda Small EV Sports Car and AC-X Plug-in Hybrid family concepts, you won't be surprised to learn that the Japanese company is keeping a lid on most details concerning the Micro Commuter.
This is all the information we get from Honda's press release:
"A micro-sized, futuristic, electric city commuter which will become a highly accessible form of mobility for more people. This vehicle will offer the joy of a new type of communications between people and mobility and an exterior that the owner can enjoy customizing more casually. The collaboration of Honda's motorcycle and automobile R&D centers made it possible to load the MOTOR COMPO two-wheel EV commuter in this vehicle."
More to come when the 42nd Tokyo Motor Show opens on November 30.
