The intuitive NeuV can make judgments about the driver’s state of stress based on facial expressions or tone of voice, and learn their driving style to give better assistance.

While the Urban EV is a city commuter designed to enhance the driver’s everyday life with interactive communication functions and will be the basis of future Honda mass-production EV models.

But headlining the show is the Honda Sports EV Concept that combines EV performance with artificial intelligence to make the drive feel at one with the car.

Based on the Urban EV platform, the Sports EV has a lowered centre of gravity to provide the full sports experience.
