Presented at the 2018 SEMA show, the Rugged Open Air Vehicle Concept is Honda’s vision of the ultimate off-road four-wheeled vehicle.



Designed and developed by Honda R&D Americas, the concept car combines the utility of the Honda Ridgeline with the off-road ruggedness and extreme styling of the Honda Pioneer 1000 side-by-side.

The Ridgeline-based interior has been modified for being exposed to the outdoors and features a Pioneer 1000 steering wheel adapted to the Ridgeline steering column, along with Civic Type R seats reskinned in waterproof Pioneer 1000 material, smartphone holders from RAM Mounts, and durable paint-on surfaces to protect the exposed instrument panel from the elements.
