New Concept Car: Honda AC-X

Honda has revealed this dramatic new mid-engined sports car concept as the star of the Tokyo motor show. The Honda Small Sports EV Concept will be joined on Honda’s Tokyo stand by a stylish new plug-in hybrid saloon and a Renault Twizy-style urban commuter vehicle.

Honda describes the AC-X saloon concept as being a next-generation plug-in hybrid. The concept appears to be between the Civic and Accord in size. The firm revealed last month that it intends to have a plug-in hybrid on sale in limited numbers in China, Japan and US in 2012.

Honda says the concept “offers a comfortable and enjoyable driving experience in urban and long-distance motoring”. To that end, the concept is offered with an ‘automatic driving mode’ for more relaxed driving, with an ‘engine drive mode’ on offer for more spirited driving.
