The car of the future is here. The revolutionary Honda 3R-C concept will make its world debut in the 2010 Geneva Motor Show this March. Honda envisions the three-wheeled 3R-C concept as a single person vehicle, which battery power is used to drive the electric motors.
When is not in used or parked the 3R-C has a clear canopy covers up the driver’s seat. And when 3R-C vehicle is in motion, the canopy becomes a wind-shield pilot. To maintain stability and center of gravity, the battery electric drivetrain is mounted low in the three wheeled chassis.
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 boot area, which gives significant secure storage for luggage or other items. The 3R-C’s designers created a flexible cover that surrounds the upper torso to reduce exposure to bad weather and improving comfort.
The Honda 3R-C Concept will be much like driving a motorcycle but only more stable. This will be a great vehicle for everyday commute, and it will likely cost about $14,000.
