Honda has teased two electrified vehicles bound for the Frankfurt motor show next month, one being an all-new electric vehicle (EV) concept, and the other a hybrid prototype of the new-generation CR-V crossover.
Pitched as the next steps towards its ‘Electric Vision’, the Urban EV concept will preview a future production model for the European market, while the CR-V Hybrid previews the European version of the popular SUV.
It’s unknown whether the CR-V Hybrid prototype is the same as the CR-V Sport Hybrid that broke cover at the Shanghai motor show earlier this year, which teamed a 2.0-litre Atkinson-cycle four-cylinder petrol engine with two electric motors and lithium-ion batteries – similar to the set-up used by the Accord Sport Hybrid.
Honda’s CEO, Takahiro Hachigo, will unveil the Urban EV Concept at the Honda Press Conference on Tuesday 12 September.
