Honda may be looking to take on the Hoveround in the competitive personal mobility segment. The company unveiled its E-Canopy three-wheeled scooter at the 2011 Tokyo Motor Show. Honda envisions the all-electric trike primarily for personal use, though the large optional trunk may also make the vehicle ideal for small delivery businesses that may need to cover short distances. The large, plexiglass windscreen should help keep the driver fairly dry in light weather, though the lack of passenger seating may be a problem should the E-Canopy ever make it to production.

We can already see roving gangs of overweight Americans whirring their way to the local Golden Arches before prowling the aisles of their favorite box stores on their Honda Hoveround E-Canopy.

      "We can already see roving gangs of overweight Americans whirring their way to the local Golden Arches..." Japanese company designs something and shows it at Japanese auto show for Japanese people and it's about fat Americans?

      Is Honda hearing what people want and just running in the opposite direction?

      How can anyone at Honda show their face in public? How do they justify making this a highlight of their technical capabilities when they have no descent transmission advances in a decade. They still show off sh-awd as if it hasn't been around for a decade. But THIS? I expect much hari-kiri soon. Like tens of thousands. Oh, but, uh but, the Honda jet! Just what they needed, an emblem of exactly what stole all the engineering talent away from honda cars! This company keeps laying eggs for the least demanding appliance users and they should all be ashamed.

      Major goof. The dual wheels should be in the front for stability while braking. The tipping problem is a real disadvantage in three-wheelers with the single wheel up front (like the Reliant Robin)..
