Honda’s going to be showing two new cool cars at the upcoming Tokyo Motor show, one a hybrid, the other an electric. Honda has been teasing us with various versions of the hybrid sport coupe CR-Z for a couple of years now, and the current version being shown is very close to the production model that’s slated to go on sale in Japan early next year. The CR-Z hybrid, will have a 1.5-litre four cylinder engine with Honda’s Integrated Motor Assist drivetrain.
The second car Honda’s showing is much closer to the concept stage than the production stage, but it’s a nice concept – a retro looking electric mini-car codenamed the EV-N modeled after the N600 minicar from the late 60’s. Not much is known about the EV-N, except for a few cool tidbits – it’ll have swappable seat fabrics, a solar roof, a communications system integrated into the front dash, and a UX-3 super gyroscopic robot unicycle that fits inside the passenger side door!
