Company's first mass-market electric car for everywhere outside of China has a high-tech but minimalist interior design.
The interior of Honda's electric vehicle prototype, expected to be a near-production version of its Urban EV concept, has been revealed ahead of the car's official unveiling at the 2019 Geneva motor show, which kicks off at the beginning of March.
The prototype's interior will seemingly have a clean, minimalist design, which is certainly in keeping with the styling of the 2017 concept car, as well as the prototypes spied during testing.
The dashboard has three high-resolution displays taking up much of the cabin's width. The screen directly ahead of the driver is a customisable instrumentation screen.
The touchscreens to the right have a tile-based interface for the infotainment system with a selection of built-in apps, including satellite navigation, a personal assistant, charge monitoring, entertainment, and smartphone connectivity.
Underneath the screens is a large slab of fake wood with a few physical controls for the infotainment system, including a volume knob, a home button and display brightness.
Hidden in the shadows below this are wide horizontal vents, and a simple set of suite of physical switches and dials for the climate control system.
Given Honda's history with "prototype" vehicles, we expect the car to be unveiled in Geneva will head into production almost unchanged.
While the as-yet-unnamed production car seems to share many of styling features of the 2017 concept, the production version will have five doors not three.
Details about the car's power, range and pricing have yet to be announced, but it's diminutive proportions will probably see it pitched as a more affordable alternative to the Tesla Model 3 or, even, the Nissan Leaf.
