Jun 1, 2010

Honda 3R-C concept
Making its world debut at the Geneva auto show, the Honda 3R-C urban transport concept raised many eyebrows, and even more questions along the lines of "What the hell is that thing?" and "do I want one?" Decide for yourself.

Hailed as a revolutionary, three-wheeled battery/electric vehicle, the 3R-C is perfect for any Segway owner who wishes they could sit down while moving, without the added fear of constantly tipping over, as well as gain an extra wheel for increased support, traction, and speed. Drawing on Honda's vast working knowledge of vehicles utilizing electric motors, the 3R-C vehicle concept explores the realm of future minimal urban transport vehicle for single persons. With a low mounted drive train in the three-wheeled chassis, the 3R-C boasts a low center of gravity low, thus improving stability.

A built-in clear canopy covers the driver's seat while parked, and doubles as an enveloping windshield offering significant protection from wind and bugs, but unfortunately not against all the jealous stares you'll get after picking one of these up.
