Default Gen 3 Insight? New Honda Gear Concept

From Autoblog.com :

"simple and utilitarian, but also customizable, connected and full of personality." It is apparently "practical but fun, connected and affordable"
Inspired by fixed-gear bicycles.

Maybe it is powered by "pedal power".

This '72 Honda 600 (2 cylinder) is sitting on showroom floor of a local Honda dealership. I wonder how a transplanted 3 cyl VTEC-e would do in this miniscule car.

A Honda ECA1 would be an awesome engine swap for the Honda 600. I wouldn't mind it in a Subaru 360 either. I do like microcars and the Insight as about the closest thing we can get in the past decade in the US.

I still dream of the pure electric drivetrain when I see small cars though but that's a personal opinion, imagine that kind of torque and power in a tiny car though. *dream sequence*

Sounds like Honda wants to adopt the Scion brand with user customizable vehicles for a one size base fits all. I read somewhere the micro mini cars were going to take over.

Interesting as it has the front end of the Challenger and rear of the rabbit 3 door. Wonder if its rwd like the fr-s/brz/gt-86.

There is probably serious markup in all the upgrades.

I don't see Challenger there no matter how hard I squint.
There's no way Honda would stray from their MO on a bargain hatch. Hopefully they bring back the S2000. I saw some refreshed concepts heavily based on the old one. I think they were shown at the Tokyo Auto Show.

You dont see how the hood comes over the grill, the round angel eye like lamp with projector behind it like?

Maybe its a good thing I held off trading my i2 for an si?

I wonder if it will have a Hybrid power train.
