Honda EV-STER Will See Production
We were really impressed with the lines of the EV-STER that Honda showed at the 2011 Tokyo Auto Show earlier this month, but we never saw it as being anything more than a regular old concept, meant to preview some other car we haven’t heard about yet. But no, they are actually going to build it.
Honda CEO Takanubo Ito confirmed that to German magazine Auto Motor Sport, and thankfully also hinted at a possible petrol-powered version as well.
The EV-STER is powered by an electric motor and a 10kWh lithium-ion battery drivetrain, sending all the power to the roadster concept’s back wheels. The 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) sprint takes 5 seconds, while the top speed is 160 km/h (100 mph).
