Looking forward, and hoping it will be good (RWD and produced). It would be the best city car if powered with at least 150 PS.

Honda R&D CEO says that future EV's will be RWD/AWD or look like FR. He does not want them to be like appliances. Apparently, future models will borrow heavily from the tech of this car. Maybe this means that for the time that ICE engines are still allowed in this world, a platform that is made for EV's, but also allow a small front ICE engine connected to a rear mounted transmission for those who want that classic AWD performance with a front TMU.

Plans for the S2000 could have been FR (Miata sized) but with more power.

All of this sounds and looks good. The Urban EV whateverit'snamewas Honda from Frankfurt was the most surprising and pleasant thing of the show. The design language is spot on and will likely stretch well here.

But I still just want the S660 to come to the U.S.

It's a mighty odd looking car (I imagine it will look better in-person), but I applaud Honda for trying to make EVs fun and sporty. Perhaps this will be the CRX of the new millenium.... I think the rear end is quite nice.

It's rather quirky, but in a good way. Very cool. More of this please Honda.

Too bad Honda--when they produce a gorgeous car--won't build it so that they can turn out more hot-mess jobs like the Civic and Accord. Could you imagine how stunning they both would look if they were as simple of form as this. I know everything has to be an EV today, but this would be a great gasser too.

Love it. Sorta fun and cute, retro yet modern. They set a production date of 2020 for their Urban EV, so maybe this will also come of something... eventually...
