Default Honda EV sports car concept

I hope they make this car:



...The car side of the line will offer visitors the chance to get cozy with a new plug-in hybrid concept as well as an EV. The ACX offers plug-in enthusiasts a vehicle that can function equally as well in urban environs or on the open highway thanks to a two-mode drive system with an engine drive mode for a sportier experience and an automatic drive mode for everything else.

Meanwhile, Honda says that the Small Sport EV Concept "maximizes the fun of driving while achieving excellent environmental performance." Details are markedly absent other than that brief description, so we're hoping Honda will shed more light on the model once it debuts in Tokyo...

Oh come now, you can put the concept of a sports car with the production model of a midsize mainstream sedan.

I like the concept much better. The real car looks too dated in its design.

The "real car" is an Accord, not a sports car. They've not released anything from this concept yet.

Thats good, it looked like the crz has too much grill for a hybrid car.

One thing I like about Mazda, their new cars look like they are smiling at you, large frontal area with few openings for more aero.

I beg to differ. Concept 'drawings' aren't typically created to be turned into an actual car. They're for proposing styling cues. I can see an awful lot of styling elements from the concept that have been transposed onto that accord.
