Quick Look At The Honda EV-Cub Concept (Photos)
Honda presents a collection of photos of its latest electric personal commuter EV-Cub Concept, which will debut at the 2015 Tokyo Motor Show.
It looks cool, but as with many other EV concepts from Honda, the possibility of production is in question.
“EV-Cub Concept: It is a personal commuter model for short-distance commuting that follows the concept of an “easy-to-handle and economical motorcycle” that Honda has been pursuing since the creation of the first-generation Super Cub. By placing the battery, a heavy component, at a low position in the middle of the body, the ease of getting on and off the bike was achieved. Moreover, ease-of-handling was pursued through concentration of the mass and lowering of the center of gravity. In consideration of ease-of-use in a broader range of use environments, the battery itself was made detachable in addition to the fact that it is rechargeable using a standard home wall socket.”
