Turns out, Honda's P-NUT is not some sort of twist on the UX-3 unicycle thing we saw in Japan recently. Instead, the concept vehicle is a three-seat thing enclosed in lots of glass and angular shapes. Honda says the P-NUT is ready for one of three possible powertrains: an efficient gas engine, a gas-electric hybrid, or a pure electric set-p. There's not a whole lot of room for any of these powerplants in a traditional set-up because the driver's leg room extends almost all the way into the front of the concept. Good thing the power source is intended to be mounted in the rear.
Let's be clear, this is a pure concept car. There are no side mirrors (but there is a back-up camera). Bumpers? Bah, Honda barely put headlights on this thing. Still, the Honda 'Personal-Neo Urban Transport' could make for a pretty sweet ride through a city, with lots of sightlines for the three inhabitants (a driver in the front middle, two passengers arranged behind and to either side) to see out of. The P-NUT does succeed in Honda's stated goal to get the most space out of a small footprint, and we wouldn't mind some sort of production version BEV someday. Chances are, though, that this is the last we'll ever see of it.
