Honda 3R-C Concept

The Honda 3R-C Concept is a futuristic three-wheeler single-seater vehicle designed at the company’s European R&D facility in Milan. Among the features are the electric drivetrain and the canopy which transforms from a cover into an enveloping windshield.


Honda 3R C ConceptThe Honda 3R-C three wheeled battery electric vehicle concept shows what a future minimal urban transport vehicle for one person might look like.

The battery electric drivetrain is mounted low in the three wheeled chassis, therefore keeping the centre of gravity low and thus improving stability.

The 3R-C has a clear canopy that covers the driver’s seat while it is parked and not in use.

When 3R-C vehicle is in motion, the canopy becomes an enveloping wind-shield that provides the pilot, who sits low in the vehicle, with significant protection from the bodywork and doors.

The high sides of the safety shell seat give greater safety to the occupant, reducing the threat from side impacts and improving weather protection. In front of the driver is a lockable boot area, which gives significant secure storage for luggage or other items.

The 3R-C’s designers created a flexible cover that surrounds the upper torso to reduce exposure to bad weather and improving comfort.
