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! Check out more pics of the Honda Skydeck in the gallery below.

      I would say that the Skydeck beats the nuts off of the Crosstour, but as that car lacks balls already, it's not really appropriate.

      I like how the second row seats slide under the fronts.

      Looks like they updated the Volvo V50 wagon, Oak trim and all.

      I really don't see this making it to the US. It doesn't have enough room or does it look user friendly. It looks 'cool', but not 'convenient'. And those are the reasons you get a van in the first place, right?

      Compared to recent Honda designs, this is nice. Not liking the panda bear nose grill, but otherwise it's kinda nice. Profile has some nice curves (which current Hondas lack).

      Nice job on the next-gen Odyssey.

      So we've seen the Venza, along with the new Tribeca - any more wagons coming from Japan?

      I like it but it may inspire families to throw those Lambo doors on their Odyssey

      It's not really a minivan, it's just a car with sliding back doors. It doesn't look too much bigger than a sedan.

      Look out Mazda5! That's some great styling!

      The Nissan Forum concept covered this territory almost 2 years ago, and it looks like Honda has studied it well. I am hoping Nissan is serious about bringing its Quest replacement to market soon.
