The Honda 3R-C concept is one of the vehicles which went
on display at the 2010 Geneva Motor Show. It was developed
by a European design team based at Honda's Research and
Design facility in Milan. The 3R-C was conceived as a
commuter vehicle for zero-emission travel.
The 3R-C is yet another single person, electric powered
city car from a Japanese manufacturer. It takes its place
alongside the range of Toyota contraptions, including
As well as the Suzuki
Pixy. It also helps compliment the odd little Honda
UX-3 electric unicycle thingy which the company rolled
out at the start of the year.
The 3R-C is powered by a electric drivetrain which is
mounted low down in the chassis to improve the center
of gravity and help keep the top-heavy-looking vehicle
from tipping over.
When parked the canopy closes over the seat and handlebars
to provide weather protection and keep the interior dry.
When the driver gets in this pops up and acts as an enveloping
windscreen to provide protection from the wind. The high
sides offer additional comfort and protection from the
elements for the driver.
Located up front is a secure and lockable cargo area for
carrying everything from groceriesto luggage.
