By Curated Content Editor

Two years after debuting this retro-futuristic concept car, Honda is on the verge of selling it.

It isn’t coming to the U.S. because we are not allowed to enjoy sophisticated cars. Apparently Gordon Murray designed the chassis.

Big fan of that car/chassis. Only a 200km range though. If they could make that and with 200 mile range, would be better suited for US. I'd be more apt to consider one for DD if they just released that design with a 1.5T engine. Love the car overall. They will be selling it this year BTW.

Also this is a good vid on it.

Unfortunately, Iwaki-san confirmed to us that there are currently no plans to take that into production, as it was very much a concept. But is there a possibility of a supercar variant of the EV design in the future?

yeah no crx type recaro seats, nothing like my crx 's. but it is small so i would hope it does as well as my old 89 crx hf for mileage, that car got 56.8 mpg.

honda should put the 1.5 or 1.6 back into pro... no bybrids, no batteriies. just give it the HF functionality. Come on Honda Engineers, make something that does better than the 80's/90'so CRX HF. YOU CAN T DO IT CAN YOU NO you cant. i tried th CR-Z. not as good......PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE HONDA ENGINEERS. talkking no power locks no power windows, now infotainment, Just make is pass NHTSA stuff, and be done......you siimpyl can;t make something so simple can you. no .

Crash safety is exactly why they "can't" make cars naturally get 50mpg anymore.

The CRX was a sardine can on wheels in regards to actual safety.

Best car ever doe.
