Honda will be showcasing a number of what it has tagged ‘electromotive concept models’ at the Tokyo Motor Show, which begins on Nov 30, and one of them is the AC-X, or the Advanced Cruiser-X, to give it its full designation. The company says that the next-generation plug-in hybrid vehicle is equipped to offer a comfortable and thoroughly enjoyable drive, be it in urban surroundings or over long-haul runs.

Word has it that the futuristic sedan is powered by a 1.6 litre petrol engine offering 127 hp and a 120 kW electric motor combination, and numbers include an operating range just a shade under a thousand clicks, in this case 997 km, and a stupendous 0.90 litres per 100 km consumption.

The AC-X features a choice of drive modes, an “engine drive mode” for more aggressive driving or an “automatic drive mode” for those relaxed moments. Not much explained about the funky interior, but that steering looks just plane awesome. Sorry, couldn’t resist that.
