Honda 0 design

When I first saw this, I thought, “that’s a cool looking concept”. Then I read Honda saying this is 90% of a production version.

This is the first EV that I feel is trying to look for a new concept. Is it a good design though?

It must be good design, because it looks like one of my college textbooks.

I have that too. I was never as good as that author.

I love the design (both of them) but Honda has been making some fantastic EV concept cars over the past 5+ years… they clearly have the design talent. The question is will they bring any of these to production? Supposedly this is green lit.

that’s hilarious. Honda is approaching Nissan/Infiniti levels of “not getting shit done”

All this says to me is that the car will never exist. The fact that the auto industry, and its followers, continue to fool themselves into thinking that 99% of concept cars are anything more than fun art and sculpture projects continues to blow my mind.

Honda has a pretty bad track record in particular. Toyota seems to throw out 10 new EV concepts a year, maybe to distract people that they are far behind?

Hyundai, sometimes they concepts are close, sometimes far… the Ioniq 5 was not a bad translation.

Concept:

Production, certainly not as clean, but for as fast as they got it there, not bad:

Concept cars fall into two groups.

  1. Totally unrealistic styling exercise. PR/marketing move.

  2. Production ready model with a bit of “flair” like no mirrors, stupid yolk steering wheel and giant rims.

The interesting stuff is in between but pretty rare these days.

It has an uncanny resemblance to a bagged canister vacuum and I cannot unsee it.
That said, it’s much better executed and attractive than any new BMW or Mercedes-Benz (with their newfound love of jelly bean aesthetics).
