Honda Urban EV concept to make production in 2019

Honda Urban EV concept to make production in 2019

While the concept can only seat four, the production version of the Urban EV concept should be a five-seater. The round LED headlamps and angular body are clear references to the first-generation Honda Civic, while the backlit Honda emblem will become a feature on all Honda EVs.

Revealed at the Frankfurt motor show on 12 September, the Honda Urban EV Concept is an all-electric glimpse at what small city cars could look like towards the end of the decade.

Deal expands state of emergency to include all 159 counties
If sustained winds of 39 miles per hour are reached, emergency services will be suspended until weather permits, the county says. Cooper also reiterated that despite a few isolated and intermittent shortages, there was no concern for the state's fuel supply.

- Picture courtesy of HondaFRANKFURT, Sept 12 -The term "all-new" may be overused in the motor industry, but it definitely applies to a model Honda has just unveiled at the 2017 Frankfurt Motor Show. Special rear-hinged coach doors help with the ingress and egress. And rather like the Smart Vision EQ ForTwo Concept, the Urban EV has interactive multilingual messages that can be displayed between the headlights. "The production version of this auto will appear in Europe in 2019", said Honda President Takahiro Hachigo.

The driver's outward visibility from the Urban EV Concept is excellent thanks to slim A-pillars and a wide windscreen that appears to sweep around the entire front of the vehicle. The vehicle has been created to accommodate up to four occupants, across two bench seats that have been finished in different materials, and the seatbelts for the rear bench seat are fixed in the middle of the seat so the belt can retract out of the way before a passenger gets out of the auto. The front bench is upholstered with a natural grey fabric, while the rear bench gains wood-finish accents to lend the cabin a "lounge feeling".

That resolution cut Pyongyang's $3 billion annual export revenue by one-third, focusing on North Korea's coal exports. He urged Pyongyang to take "concrete action" toward denuclearization.

A large floating dashboard design houses the steering wheel and a minimalistic layout with only a few button controls and a large display screen.

The auto features something Honda calls an Automated Network Assistant - a play on the concierge-type services becoming more common as vehicles get more connected - and Honda has also introduced the Honda Power Manager concept, a smart system for home energy. The main dashboard screen presents a range of vehicle information including remaining battery level. This behaviour is then considered when the vehicle offers new choices and recommendations.

More Floridians asked to leave as Irma nears the US
We will still see gusty winds this evening which may reach 30-35 miles per hour across the higher terrain to the east. The last major hurricane-those rated Category 3 or higher-to make landfall in Florida was Hurricane Wilma in 2005.

Launching alongside the concept is Honda's Electric Vision strategy. It's also claimed to offer a way to take full advantage of its battery power - Honda's "power manager concept" is said to enable power from renewable sources to be efficiently stored and either used in your home or sold back to the grid.
