The Honda P-NUT (Personal-Neo Urban Transport) concept is a bizarre and rather ridiculous concept which was displayed at the 2009 LA Auto Show. The design is a proposal for a futuristic three-seat vehicle for the city which offers a small physical and environmental footprint.

According to Dave Marek, director of advanced design for Honda R&D Americas: "A new generation is discovering the benefits of living in urban centers that provide convenient access to business, entertainment and social opportunities. The Personal-Neo Urban Transport concept explores the packaging and design potential for a vehicle conceived exclusively around the city lifestyle."

The unusual, but at the same time rather unimaginative shape and styling of the P-NUT was designed to offer a balance of eye-catching lines and maximum interior space. It certainly is eye catching - but for all the wrong reasons.

The layout of the interior, with its center driving position flanked by two rear seats, provides a decent amount of legroom for all three occupants. Interior functionality is increased by rear seating areas that fold up and out of the way to increase storage capacity. The windshield serves as a heads-up display for the navigation system and the back-up camera.

The modular rear engine bay of the P-NUT, depicted on the exterior by blue composite material, is designed to accommodate a wide variety of potential drivetrains, including a conventional small displacement internal combustion engine, a hybrid gasoline-electric powertrain, or a battery-electric powertrain.
