Honda is keeping their unveiling of concepts at the 2011 Tokyo Motor Show going – and the latest we get to see is a Hoveround-ish scooter. Sitting on three wheels, the E-Canopy concept could be used for personal transportation or short-travel delivery excursions.
However, it looks more suited to sitting around inside a department store and waiting for an overweight or geriatric customer to take it down the aisle.
Honda 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.
Officially known as the Honda E-Canopy, the electric trike features optional trunk space or possibly a place to stash your golf clubs the next time you hit the links.
It has a large Plexiglas windshield that will cover your head in the midst of a light drizzle on a cool spring morning and if your friend wants a lift somewhere, they are out-of-luck as it only has seating for one.
Technical specifications of the engine aren’t out yet but hopefully the automobile will be providing enough power and torque to optimize its functionality. After all it’s a Honda vehicle.
