The Japanese based automaker Honda is planning to put its EV-STER concept, previewed at Tokyo Motor Show, into production.
According to auto-motor-und-sport.de, the Honda EV-STER will hit the production line in the nearby future, a fact confirmed by the company’s CEO, Takanobu Ito, in an interview with the German magazine. Our source is also telling us that the production version of the Honda EV-STER might hit the market as early as 2012, which means that Honda had plans for putting it into production before its official debut at the Tokyo Motor Show earlier this month.
As a reminder, the Honda EV-STER concept is powered by a 10 kWh lithium-ion battery which allows a maximum range of approximately 160 km (JC08 mode), developing a maximum output of 58 kW. Honda says that the EV-STER Concept can accelerate from 0 to 60 km/h in 5.0 seconds and it has a top speed of 160 km/h. Charging time for the Honda EV-STER Concept takes under 6 hours at 100V and under 3 hours at 200V. Honda’s new concept car, the EV-STER, is 3.570 mm long, 1.500 mm wide and 1.100 mm high, with a wheelbase of 2.325 mm. The Honda EV-STER is the company’s vision on the future and some of its technology might be implemented to future models.
