Honda has released the first images and details on the AC-X Concept, a plug-in hybrid family car that builds on the design and proportions of the 2007 FCX Clarity.
The exterior is strongly characterized by a design driven by the search for maximum aerodynamic efficiency and by the trademark styling cues of the brand.
Among the distinctive features are the two available operating modes: the engine drive mode, for a more aggressive driving, and an automatic drive mode, focused on comfort and relax.
While details on the technology are still scarce at the moment, the photos offer clear indications on the design of the car.
As with many recent concepts, the advanced technological content is underlined by the combination of the white paintwork with blue LED accents that appear on the front fascia, the dynamic line that runs across the flanks, the low-positioned daytime running lights and the wheels, which integrate transparent covers aimed at optimizing the air flows by reducing turbolence.
The interior adopts a more futuristic approach, where the high-tech feel is achieved through a mix of tones and materials.

The white-blue color scheme of the cabin is very consistent with the exterior, and features a strong contrast with the black displays and the warm grey surfaces of the floor and seat rear panels.
Among the futuristic elements is the airplane yoke-inspired controls, which integrate a LCD and a HUD display and can retract when operating in automatic driving mode.
Very nice!!! also smart innovation.
