Honda P-NUT concept looks a charmer at LA Auto show

December 4, 2009, By Sanjeev Ramachandran


The Los Angeles Auto Show is seeing a slew of new designs that would soon hit the road. Leading the pack with a Personal-Neo Urban Transport (P-NUT) ultra-compact vehicle is Honda.

The P-NUT is Honda’s new forthcoming model in the concept stage that shows much promise. Featuring a modular rear engine bay that will house a variety of potential powertrain technologies, the P-NUT is in the works at The Advanced Design Studio of Honda R&D Americas, Inc. in Los Angeles. We learn that the powertrain includes a conventional small internal combustion engine, a hybrid system, or a battery-electric drivetrain.

Falling in the micro-car category, the concept P-NUT will seat three. The central driving position will be flanked by two rear seats and has been built to provide ample legroom. All of 11.2 x 5.7 x 4.6 feet size, it has its rear seats with a foldable option in case you need more storage space.

Honda has conceptualized the design with exteriors making the car a single piece combination windshield and roof. The windshield serves as a head-up display for the navigation system. We still do not know if this will remain a concept or whether it would hit the roads at a later stage.
