Honda to unveil concept electric sports car EV-STER at Tokyo Motor Show 2011
Honda is all ready to showcase its next-generation electric small sports concept model called the EV-STER at the 42nd Tokyo Motor Show 2011. The car is the evolution of the electric supercars we have today, and could probably be the greenest and fastest way to drive in the future. A two-seat convertible, this one sports a 160km range and uses carbon materials for the body to keep its weight minimal. Also, the car sports a futuristic twin-lever type steering wheel, making it seem more like flying a jet than driving an extraordinarily pretty sports car! With a maximum speed of 160kmph, the car touches the 60mph mark in just below 5.0 seconds and takes between 3 to 6 hours to charge up, depending on the output type.
