Honda is bringing a whole range of transportation solutions to the Tokyo Motor Show, from this plug-in hybrid sedan concept to folding scooters and pod cars. Dubbed AC-X for Advanced Cruiser eXperience, this streamlined sedan draws heavily from the FCX Clarity fuel cell sedan's aesthetics, applying its design language to a plug-in hybrid electric showcar.

Powered by a 1.6-liter four-cylinder and a pair of electric motors, the four-seat AC-X features a super-slippery .21 cD thanks to active aero bits (front bumper, side skirts and rear diffuser) and transparent full wheel covers that remain stationary when the car is in motion.

Just as interestingly, the AC-X explores autonomous control, with "Automatic Drive Mode Support," which folds the control yoke 'wheel' into the dashboard, reclines the front seat and presents an ottoman for the driver's legs, all while safely delivering its passengers to their destination.

Despite such future-think technologies, the AC-X's powertrain seems remarkably near-term, with a realistic EV-only cruising range of 50 kilometers and a maximum electric-only top speed of 100 kph (62 mph). Check out more in our gallery live from the show floor.

        That was my same thought. Looks like a Civic with Robocop's helmet stretched around the front.

      It doesn't. It looks boring and generic. HONDA! FIRE EVERYONE AND JUST MAKE THE EF AGAIN. Seriously.

          That would be an embarrassing thing to do to Honda.

      Hopefully this is the next Accord or Crosstour.

      I know EV cars are hopeless, but this car is interesting, I must say. I can sense some seriousness in it, which means Honda might really sell this car in the future.. As long as the world doesn't end next year.. LOL!

      Good interior. Never going to happen.

      I like the front and the roofline, but the rear end profile is very Crosstour-ish and that's not good.
