Tokyo Preview: Honda Skydeck concept van achieves door Nirvana - scissors AND sliders
2009 Honda Skydeck Concept - Click above for hi-res image gallery
This is the Tokyo Motor Show-bound Honda Skydeck concept, a minivan that is, essentially, a perfect storm of non-standard-hinged door technology. Those doors lead to a passenger cabin featuring center-mounted floating seats that are stackable for easier access to the third row. From there, passengers can take in the breathtaking vistas offered by the all-glass roof, or simply enjoy the Skydeck's minimalist interior, which looks as if it could be the handiwork of IKEA designers being held against their will by armed ASIMO centurions. For added Earth-loving wonderfulness, the Skydeck is, of course, a hybrid. Plus, it earns major bonus points for having translucent green wheels even though SEMA's still over a month away!
