At LA Auto Show 2009 Honda unveiled the Personal-Neo Urban Transport (P-NUT) design study.
Designed around a small, micro-car ‘footprint’, ideal for use in cities and tight urban areas, the
P-NUT’s packaging concept includes a central driving position, rear powertrain layout and interesting interior space-saving solutions.
“A new generation is discovering the benefits of living in urban centres that provide convenient access to business, entertainment and social amenities,” said Dave Marek, director of advanced design for Honda R&D Americas, Inc. “The Personal-Neo Urban Transport concept explores the packaging and design potential for a vehicle conceived exclusively around the city lifestyle.”
