Honda Urban production model was displayed at the Frankfurt motor show in September last year. The final production version is due to be revealed in Geneva next year.
The concept was so popular that Honda will make very few changes to the final car’s design. Inside, the major changes will be the switch to five seats from four and the adoption of more conventional switchgear.

The Urban EV has low and wide proportions and is 100mm shorter than the Jazz supermini, making it 3895mm long. When on sale, the car will not steal sales from other models, which helped its case for production, according to a senior Honda source.
