Hooniverse Asks: Do you have a favorite reveal from the Frankfurt Motor Show?


The action in Frankfurt is in full swing with many a new model being trotted out. Yes, a lot of the super and hyper car action was to be expected but there are a few gems also offering up a nice surprise. Case in point is exhibit A seen above.
That’s the Honda Urban EV Concept. It’s fantastic looking, from its retro body lines to its ultra cool wheels. Additionally, Honda says a production version of this very car will hit European streets by 2019.
Our friend Jonny Lieberman had a great idea that Honda should call it the EVCC. We agree and we can only hope a version that looks a whole lot like this makes it to US production at some point as well.

So what’s your favorite car shown in Frankfurt so far? Do you have one or are you holding out for something else at an upcoming show in the months to come?

    Wouldn’t a more obvious naming choice be “E-Tec”? /runs and hides

          40 miles on a one-hour charge? Wacky retro looks? Want.

      Forget Proceed, they should build it as a Stinger wagon. Unless the Proceed/Ceed is going to become rwd (based on lack of front overhang), in which case that would be incredible!

    Even looking at photos of the Honda on the dais, it appears to be a rendering.

      How have they got the A pillars so thin?
      (This is, of course, a good thing, hopefully the start of a new trend.)

        Concept car only, I expect. Even if the pillars were solid boron steel I doubt they would work well enough for crash safety with such a small section.

    None. I’ll take a closer look in 15-25 years, I guess.

      I’d say they didn’t stray too far. All they need to do is add some rust. http://fc08.deviantart.net/fs70/f/2010/045/d/3/Honda_Civic_2nd_gen_by_ChrisKnockout.jpg

        Ordinarily, I’d agree with you but, the utter lack of crease lines only screams Golf Mk1 to me.

        Yes!

    The return of a V8 engine in a vehicle with a Land Rover badge, (rather than a Range Rover one). And with 380 bhp(!) more than Land Rover’s original V8 in the Defender or Discovery.

    Frankly, Weiner is the only one I can think of who revealed his Frankfurter.
