First Look: Honda 3RC battery-powered concept

Fancy squirting round town in this bad boy?

HONDA has unveiled the new 3R-C, a revolutionary one-person battery electric vehicle concept, which will make its world debut in Geneva Motor Show, 4th-14th March.

The 3RC's battery electric drivetrain is mounted low in the three wheeled chassis, keeping the centre of gravity low and improving stability, claim Honda.

The 3R-C has a clear canopy that covers the driver’s seat while not in use. On the move, the canopy becomes an enveloping wind-shield that provides the pilot, who sits low in the vehicle, with significant protection from the bodywork and doors.

The high sides of the safety shell seat give greater safety to the occupant, reducing the threat from side impacts and improving weather protection. In front of the driver is a lockable boot area, which gives significant secure storage for luggage or other items. The 3R-C’s designers created a flexible cover that surrounds the upper torso to reduce exposure to bad weather and improving comfort.

We know what you're thinking: upmarket Sinclair C5.

But, joking aside, we like it.
