The Honda IMAS from the 2003 Tokyo Motor Show was a concept
designed to explore fuel efficient petrol-electric hybrid
technology. And like any good hybrid, the IMAS has an
impressive fuel economy, capable of traveling 50 miles
on 1/2 a gallon of fuel (40km per litre).

a low drag coefficient, just 0.20, and a lightweight body
constructed from carbon
fibre and aluminium.
Inside the Honda IMAS concept, the advanced, almost alien

Information is displayed to the driver on two flat screen
displays. One above the steering wheel for speed, fuel
level, etc. and one mounted centrally above the dash for
displaying navigation information, and video images from
the wing mirror mounted rearview cameras.
