Honda's quirky 3R-C concept

2010-02-25 10:07
Honda is set to debut its 3R-C electric concept vehicle at the Geneva Motor Show 2010.

The 3R-C concept is a three wheeled battery powered electric vehicle and was created by European designers working at Honda's Research and Design facility in Milan.

The electric drivetrain is mounted low within the three wheeled chassis in order to improve stability.

The 3R-C sports a clear canopy that covers the driver's seat while it is parked and not in use. When the vehicle is in motion, the canopy becomes an enveloping wind-shield to protect the driver.

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 stowage area.

The designers created a flexible cover which surrounds the upper torso.
