Honda is planning ahead of what its future sports cars will be like, and the company has a pretty good idea with its Honda EV-STER Concept. Soon the world will be limited or run out of gas in 40 years from now, and the all-electric Honda EV-STER Concept sports car will be there to meet the world’s demand. Well, maybe we don’t have to wait that long to see the next-generation all-electric sports car from Honda.
Honda has just revealed the new Honda EV-STER Concept at the 2011 Tokyo Motor Show, and it is a hint of what the next-generation electric small sports car would look like. The Honda EV-STER is an electric sports car with a rear-wheel-drive system. The two-seater convertible sports car is driven purely on electric to help reduce weight and alleviating the use of fossil fuel.
We see the Honda EV-STER Concept, and we say the future of electric sports cars is here. The Honda EV-STER Concept all-electric sports car is gorgeous in its styling while provides a functional aerodynamic look. The all-electric sports car measured at 3,570mm in length, 1,500mm in width, 1,100mm in height, and with a wheelbase of 2,325mm.
Honda has not released any technical information on the Honda EV-STER Concept, but the company did say that it has a 10kWh lithium-ion battery to provide enough juice for the electric sports car to travel up to 99 miles before a recharge. For a full charge, the Honda EV-STER will only need less 3 hours with a 200V outlet and 6 hours with a 100V outlet. In addition, the Honda EV-STER Concept can reach a top speed of 100 mph.
Honda claims that the Honda EV-STER Concept can accelerate from 0 to 37 mph in just 5 seconds. Yeah! (not). Although performance is sub par for the Honda EV-STER, the company expresses that it features adjustable driving modes to allow the driver to make their own adjustments, such as power output and suspension settings.
