    Honda's hip small electric sports concept, the EV-STER
    Words by Christopher Kho | Photos courtesy of Honda Motor Co.



    Honda's taking a bold step as they're ditching hybrid technology and going all-electric for their next-generation small electric sports concept. Launched at the 42nd Tokyo Motor Show, the EV-STER is an open-top roadster that has seats for two and gets its propulsion from the rear wheels. Sounds good? Well, it breaks my heart to tell you that this sportscar is not a successor to the S2000 or the NSX, but is in fact closer to the proportions of the Honda Beat kei car.

    A low-slung body with short front and rear overhangs are the tell tale signs of a sports coupe, while the split trunk cover, though functional, mostly serves as eye candy. The hexagonal LED front and rear lamps may look swell, but you'll have to agree that the blue back-lit grill and accents are a bit out of place.

    The Honda Beat was a nice little car. BTW I'm not too enthusiastic about electric drive, but maybe Honda could use this design in a new sports kei-car (and for export markets could fit it with a 1.3L engine like Daihatsu used to do with the Copen).
