Revolutionary Honda 3R-C Concept - Web Exclusive

Feb 24, 2010

The Honda 3R-C, a revolutionary one-person battery electric vehicle concept, will make its world debut in Geneva alongside the EV-N concept being displayed in Europe for the first time.

Both the three-wheeled 3R-C concept, which envisions a single occupant vehicle for zero emission commuting, and the EV-N urban concept, draw on Honda’s working knowledge of electric vehicles.

The revolutionary 3R-C three-wheeled battery electric vehicle shows what a future minimal urban transport vehicle for one person might look like. The battery electric drivetrain is mounted low in the three-wheeled chassis, keeping the centre of gravity low and improving stability.

The 3R-C has a clear canopy that covers the driver’s seat while it is parked and not in use. When in motion, the canopy becomes an enveloping windshield that provides the pilot, who sits low in the vehicle, with significant protection.

The high sides of the safety shell seat give greater safety to the occupant, reducing the threat from side impacts and improving weather protection. In front of the driver is a lockable luggage area, which gives secure storage. The 3R-C’s designers created a flexible cover that surrounds the upper torso to reduce exposure to bad weather and improving comfort.

The 3R-C study was created by European designers working at Honda’s Research and Design facility in Milan.
