Honda’s Sports EV Concept Is Another Tantalizing Look At The Future

The world is still processing Honda’s gorgeous Urban EV Concept and the brand has just followed it up at the Tokyo Motor Show with the new Sports EV Concept.

Very little is known about the concept but it clearly takes retro design inspiration from the Urban EV Concept and incorporates it into a sleek, two-door, two-seat sports car design.

Up front, Honda has designed an illuminated badge and a set of round LED headlights that provide us with some lovely vibes. Additionally, the car adopts a low and long hood, and compact interior with seats mounted near the rear axle. There’s also a set of beautifully-thin A-pillars, cameras instead of wing mirrors and square taillights seemingly identical to the Urban EV Concept.

In a brief press release about the car, Honda described it as “a concept model which combines EV performance and AI (artificial intelligence) inside a compact body with the aim to realise the joy of driving the user can feel with a sense of unity with the car.”

    • Dennis Scipio

      It’s not that beautiful, what do you see in this?

      • Bash

        Dennis, I clearly see that you cant see anything. 😉

        Its got classic design elements like round headlights, simple curvy shapes, and teardrop coupe form on a dying breed of cars. Its a fresh take on the coupe that isn’t hard edges, air vents, and gun-slit windows.

        I feel there’s also an optimism that it would be attainable to the common person.

  • Six_Tymes

    very cool.

  • gor134

    Looks very attractive

    Neat. Very Saab-like.

    Before anyone says it looks like a VW Corrado…..it just doesn’t.

    • Eythan Aldrich

      it is inspired from the s800 coupe in the 1960s

    Has that old Honda vibe ….

  • Сафиуллина-Мохамед Рамазанов

    Hope it’s not just a concept and they will turn it to production soon

  • Stephen G

    Very nice. Honda really needs to cleanup some of their designs. The Civic has gotten out of control.

  • fabri99

    WOW. I’d buy one, or even more than one.

  • Auto

    1. If this ever goes on sale, wait for it to go on sale
    2. Wait until depreciation happens
    3. Buy it used
    4. Replace electrics with Type R VTEC
    5. Have a lot of fun

    • Leconte Dave

      I hope it’s RWD

      • Auto

        Me too, but FWD wouldn’t be that bad.

    • Tinky-Winky

      OR, forget about the vtec and just have more fun with instant torque.

      • Auto

        I prefer the BUILD UP of the torque and power. I prefer the S O U N D.

  • Zed68

    OMG this is so pretty !!!!

  • Jesse A. C. Majors

    I highly approve of this new styling direction

  • SgtBeavis

    It’s not a bad looking car but you lose a lot when translating the Urban EV into this. The Urban EV has great proportions, this does not. The quirkiness of the Urban EV doesn’t work as well here. It just looks a bit goofy.

    I’ll take an Urban EV as a grocery getter but I’d totally pass on this.

    Lancia Fulvia from the front and ’69-’70 Mustang from the back? It’s cute either way.

  • Nick099

    Yeah, it’s beautiful alright..but not original…looks like a 60’s Alfa Romeo Giulia Sprint.
    Now let’s see if they can actually make a sports car that people will pay for….unlike the NSX.

  • Tumbi Mtika

    This is a new S2000. This is what I’m looking for.

    PROCEED.

  • Skye

    Looks like something AMC would design if they were still alive.
