Honda to Showcase “Cooperative Mobility Ecosystem” at 2017 Consumer Electronics Show

DEC 17 2016 BY MARK KANE 7

Honda announced its presence at the upcoming 2017 Consumer Electronics Show with a new all-electric concept vehicle – the NeuV.

The NeuV is to be tiny autonomous commuter vehicle – for now presented only with a single image.

We sense car sharing opportunities, but need to wait until January CES to know more.

“Harnessing the power of artificial intelligence, robotics, and big data to transform the mobility experience, Honda today announced that “Cooperative Mobility Ecosystem” will be the theme for its participation at the 2017 Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas.”

“Honda will feature interactive and immersive experiences designed to showcase a future technology path toward a redefined mobility experience. From reducing traffic congestion to creating new modes of in-car connectivity, visitors will have an opportunity to explore and demo technologies with the potential to make people’s lives better. The exhibit will include the NeuV, a concept automated EV commuter vehicle equipped with artificial intelligence (AI) called “emotion engine”*1 that creates new possibilities for human interaction and new value for customers.

Continuing its pursuit of open innovation and collaboration, Honda also will announce initiatives with startup companies and global brands that will create a more productive and enjoyable mobility experience.”

Can we get an electric Honda Jazz please? KTNXBYE

You know, something sensible, practical, convenient. No? Really? Oh you had one, but you are not going to sell it to us?

Well ok then.

It’s really kind of strange and sad, Honda was the car company I admired most, but they seem very lost right now. They used to be forward thinking: The CVCC Civic in 1974 was the only car that met the new emissions standards with a better engine instead of a bunch of tacked on pumps and hoses, and it was the only one that really ran well. I’ve had a lot of great Hondas since then including a Honda Fit.

But we are on our second Chevy Spark EV (leased 2014 just returned, purchased 2016) and my wife and I fight over who gets to drive the Spark. In many ways (seats, ergonomics, sound system, interior design) the Fit is a nicer car, but the brilliant Spark drive train makes up for it all.

I’d love to buy another Honda, but I’m not buying another gas car so unless Honda get serious about EVs we will end up replacing the Fit with a Bolt in a few years.
