Tokyo Motor Show – Honda EV-STER

Honda EV-STER

For this year’s edition of the Tokyo Motor Show, the local automaker Honda decided to bring the EV-STER sports car concept which is rumored to be the spiritual successor of the Beat model that was discontinued back in 1996.

It is an attractive EV rear-wheel drive two-seater convertible that features a lot of lightweight materials in order to keep weight down as much as possible and increase performance at the same time. Combining the use of lightweight components with diminutive dimensions – as the car measures only 3,570mm long – the car is able to do the 0-62 mph sprint in only 5 seconds and it can be driven for distances of up to 99 miles (160 km) on a single charge.

The power of the Honda EV-STER is provided by a 10 kWh lithium-ion battery that has a maximum output of 79 hp (58 kW). Charging the battery from a regular 240V source will take approximately three hours.
