Japanese car manufacturers seems to have decided Geneva is the place to showcase the possible successors to their flagship hybrid models. Toyota showed the Hybrid X. Now we take a look at Honda, who showed us what might be the next Honda Insight, a little red concept car creatively named Honda Small Hybrid Sports Concept.
The Honda Small Hybrid Sports Concept uses a 4-cylinder IMA (Integrated Motor Assist) engine coupled with a hybrid electric motor and sends power to the front wheels via a CVT transmission. The body has been designed to put emphasis on low drag to the extent of even doing away with side mirrors, using camera instead. 165/60/R20 tyres on 20 inch wheels provide low rolling resistance, further saving fuel.
