Default Honda Kiwami (Fuel Cell Concept)

Probably due to many of us already starting a new love affair with the IMAS, we appear to have overlooked one of the other offerings from Honda - the new Kiwami (fuel cell concept). Very interesting - see links below.

Another concept at the Tokyo show, the HSC, is now apparently scheduled to go into production in 2005 to replace the NSX. Let's hope Honda tool up the factory for the IMAS at the same time!

Reminds me of a chopped Hy-Wire almost.

The Kiwami is sexier than the Hy-Wire. If it were to go into production I'd buy one. With that syncronized 4WD I bet it would make a fantastic highway cruiser. I wonder if that means it has individual electric motors in the hub of each wheel since it's an electric car.
