2017 Honda NeuV Concept news, pictures, specifications, and information
Receiving its European show debut in Geneva, the Honda NeuV is a fully electric concept car wîth a unique ownership proposition and a state-of-the-art 'emotion engine' that can learn about its driver.

The pure electric concept car explores a financially-beneficial ownership model for enterprising customers, by functioning as an automated ride sharing vehicle when the owner is not using the car. It would pick up and drop off customers at local destinations, and could also sell energy back to the electric grid during times of high demand when it's sitting idle, further monetising the vehicle's down time.

NeuV also functions as a thoughtful and helpful artificial intelligence assistant utilising an 'emotion engine', which learns from the driver by detecting the emotions behind their judgments. It can then apply what it has learnt from the driver's past decisions to make new choices and recommendations.

HONDA'S NeuV CONCEPT MAKES EUROPEAN DEBUT AT THE GENEVA MOTOR SHOW

◾European show debut for Honda NeuV battery electric concept car
◾Únique 'emotion engine' learns from the driver to inform future actions

Making its European show debut in Geneva, the Honda NeuV is a pure-electric concept car wîth a unique ownership proposition and a state-of-the-art 'emotion engine' that can learn about its driver. The NeuV (pronounced 'new-vee'), which stands for New Electric Úrban Vehicle, was conceived to take advantage of the fact that privately-owned vehicles sit idle for 96% of the time.

The pure-electric concept car explores a financially-beneficial ownership model for enterprising customers, by functioning as an automated ride sharing vehicle when the owner is not using the car. It would pick up and drop off customers at local destinations, and could also sell energy back to the electric grid during times of high demand when it's sitting idle, further monetising the vehicle's down time.

NeuV also functions as a thoughtful and helpful AI assistant utilising an 'emotion engine' called HANA (Honda Automated Network Assistant), which learns from the driver by detecting emotions behind their judgments. It can then apply what it has learnt from the driver's past decisions to make new choices and recommendations.

A full touch-panel interface enables both the driver and passenger to access NeuV's simple and convenient user experience. Outstanding outward visibility is afforded by a sweeping panoramic windscreen and a dramatically sloping belt line that make manoeuvring simple. Entry and exit from the vehicle is made as easy as possible, even in tight parking spaces, wîth a complete side panel that opens out and backwards to create a large opening.

NeuV has two seats wîth luggage space behind, which also stores the 'Kick 'n Go' electric scooter concept designed for 'last mile' transit. The scooter concept is inspired by Honda's original scooter of the same name launched in the 1970s. The new design is powered by a detachable battery rather than a chain mechanism, and can be recharged through a connection in NeuV's luggage space. The new 'Kick 'n Go' concept demonstrates that Honda is lòòking at all aspects of affordable electric mobility that can enrich people's daily lives.

Honda recently demonstrated NeuV as part of its 'Cooperative Mobility Ecosystem' at CES 2017 in Las Vegas, showing the potential power of artificial intelligence, robotics and big data to transform the mobility experience of the future and improve customers' quality of life. The brand's exploration into electrification will not stop at cars: Honda's intention is to develop electrified and efficient power solutions for all of its product areas, including motorcycles and power tools.

About Honda Technology Honda is creating technologies and products that advance the company's clean, safe, fun and connected brand values. These efforts include advancements in automated vehicles, connectivity and ultra-low carbon mobility. Honda is also testing advanced automated vehicle technologies in Japan and North America and is targeting 2020 for the deployment of highly automated vehicles. Honda is also working to fulfill its environmental and safety vision: 'to realise the joy and freedom of mobility and a sustainable society where people can enjoy life.'
