The Honda stand at this year’s Tokyo Motor Show featured a number of environmentally orientated vehicles under Honda’s HELLO! program.

The Honda stage featured such participants as the FCX Clarity, EV-N (a vehicle with looks originating in Honda’s early Scout models), Cub Electric Motorscooter, and U3-X unicycle concept.

Honda explains the stand as follows:

As the world prepares for a low-carbon future, Honda has been planning for the new forms mobility may take.

Under the vision Honda calls HELLO! (Honda Electric mobility Loop), Honda is preparing for a future in which electromotive technologies are at the core of mobility.

Producing zero CO2 is of little value if a vehicle causes substantial CO2 emissions to be produced when it is charged. That’s why Honda is also proactively engaged in developing clean and green energy production technologies.

In the HELLO! program, Honda generates electricity with solar panels. Vehicles powered by this clean energy feature interactive communication technologies that connect drivers to pedestrians and other drivers.

Envisioning a green mobility society with a higher level of interactivity, enjoyment and safety, HELLO! is one of Honda’s proposals for the future.
