It's retro, in the coolest of ways.

The Honda Sports EV Concept that was just unveiled in Tokyo is definitely one of the big stars of the show.  The EV is drawing crowds, and people seem to really connect with the car, as it gives off the impression of just being a fun vehicle to drive.

Sadly, Honda has yet to provide any details on the new Sports EV Concept, which probably means it's far from being considered as production model.

Honda is definitely a slow mover in terms of plug-ins compared to its peers, but when Japanese company finally figures out how to incorporate EVs into its brand image, maybe through models like the Sports EV Concept, it could be a different story down the road; the company has promised a couple new plug-in offerings will be arriving soon.

Until then, here is a full compliment of photos and videos of the Sports EV Concept from Japan.

"Honda exhibited the world premiere of the Honda Sports EV Concept, a concept model which combines EV performance and AI (artificial intelligence) inside a compact body with the aim to realize the joy of driving the user can feel with a sense of unity with the car."
