Honda reveals NeuV concept ahead of CES 2017 debut
Honda describes the stars of its Consumer Electronics Show stand as a ‘co-operative mobility ecosystem’, with artificial intelligence and autonomous potential
As expected for the CES show, the NeuV is packed with technology, including artificial intelligence, which Honda claims allows humans to interact with the car differently than before.
New modes of connectivity and a system designed to alleviate traffic congestion also feature on Honda’s stand, which collectively make up a ‘co-operative mobility ecosystem’ – Honda’s vision of the future, involving electric, connected, autonomous cars that communicate with their environment as well as the user’s portable technologies.
Honda says its battery-electric NeuV is more a mobility solution than a car, suggesting a level of autonomy that requires little user input.
Only one image has been released by Honda, which shows the car still featuring a steering wheel. A long shark-fin antenna on the roof suggests the car’s connection to peripherals, and wide-opening doors with a large glass area mark the car out as more of a conceptual creation than one destined for imminent production.
Power output is undisclosed, although Honda has penned the car as a ‘commuter vehicle’, suggesting a low output designed for low speeds and urban traffic.
