Built on a new platform, the pint-sized two-door EV is some four inches shorter than a Honda Fit. Borrowing from the far opposite end of the automotive spectrum, the concept uses rear-hinged doors, à la Rolls-Royce. This four-seater is unusual in that it has a bench seat in front; in addition, the front and rear seats are upholstered in different fabrics. The rear seatbelts pull out from the center, which is supposed to aid entry and exit. The interior is embellished with wood trim including a large panel spanning the dash, which gets an ultra-wide, floating instrument screen. There also are screens on the upper door panels—they display feeds from the side-view cameras.

The Urban EV earns extra Japanese-concept-car points by incorporating a personal digital assistant called Honda Automated Network Assistant that “learns from the driver by detecting emotions behind their judgements.” That sounds dubious, but we love the design of this EV, which despite its diminutive dimensions manages to avoid looking toy-like. We hope more than just the light-up badge survives the transition to production, and that it gets a chance to roam American streets.
