Honda presents 3R-C design study vehicle
With their latest study project 3R-C concept, the Japanese brand Honda brings the future of the urban cruisers to the 80th edition of Geneva Motor Show in Switzerland. The Honda 3R-C concept is a three-wheeled, zero emissions vehicle designed for only one occupant. Engineered at the Honda's Research and Design facility in Milan, the concept ride boasts stunningly sophisticated and futuristic styling.
The revolutionary concept ride utilizes battery electric drivetrain, which is placed low in the three wheeled chassis keeping the centre of gravity low and thus improving stability.
The all-new 3R-C concept benefits from a clear canopy that covers the driver's seat while it is parked. When the ride is in motion, the canopy becomes an enveloping wind-shield that provides the pilot with significant protection from the bodywork and the doors.
Thanks to its significantly higher placed seat, the Honda 3R-C study vehicle renders great safety figures. Another highlight is the vehicle's trunk, which is found in the area in front of the driver. Furthermore, its creators have designed a flexible cover that surrounds the upper torso to reduce exposure to bad weather and improving comfort.
