Back in January, at the 2017 Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, the Japanese brand also showcased its New Electric Urban Vehicle (NeuV) Concept. Rumor has it that it would likely be the cornerstone of a modern and realistic Urban EV Concept which is coming soon.

No words on powertrain, but the previous NeuV is powered by a 73-hp electric motor and a 20 kWh battery, offer an average driving range from 161 – 322 km before being recharged. So hope that the Urban will have a greater performance. For further specs, just wait and see the Urban at 2017 Frankfurt Motor Show on September 12.

About Honda’s further prospective, the ambition of the firm will not limited to all-electric cars. As stated in March, the manufacturer will extend its hybrid, plug-in hybrid and fuel cell ranges in order that those vehicles accounts for 2/3 of Honda’s European lineup by the year 2025.
