Introducing electric cars in 2009 is as popular an idea as introducing pickup truck variations at SEMA in the earlier part of the decade. In other words, it’s all the rage. Thankfully this little Honda that was introduced at the Tokyo Auto Salon is a cute little package with room for a unicycle in either door. Styling and a trick: that’s enough to make us ignore the lithium-ion batteries and the unique key fob Loop thing which allows you to know the battery’s energy level on your key fob Loop or something or other.
Appearing as the perfect successor to the original Mini (or Honda’s own 600N) of the 1960s, the Honda EV-N isn’t about to settle down on North American shores. Who knows what the Future may hold for stylish electric city cars, however.
