The Honda Tomo EV concept leads to Geneva with the help of design students



"Tomo" means "friend" in Japanese, which seems correct. It looks so friendly!

In January, we learned that Honda collaborated with students from the Istituto Europeo di Design in Italy to create a concept car called Tomo. Now we have a couple of sketches of his design, and it is a runner.

The Tomo concept is how IED students see mobility in 2025. Not only is it delightful, it has a purpose ̵

1; it is the thesis project for 13 IED students, the final test in their two-year master program in transport design. After Honda asked the students to whip up something, they spent months planning and surveying, and the result is what you see here.

Some of its front end designs – namely the round headlights and the grille – look like the Honda Urban EV concepts that eventually morphed into the near-production "prototype" EV which also comes to be shown in Geneva. It is, however, completely different, but where a small bed of bed load takes place for a traditional luggage or hatch. It is about 13 meters long, 6 meters wide and 5 meters long – slightly larger than a Miata, like Autoblog notes. It was designed to be small enough for the city, and I would say it fits the bill.

Of course, it's just a design exercise for now, so don't expect it to reach production. But given that Honda is clearly willing to adapt its two EV prototypes to future buyers, maybe if we all want hard enough then it will happen.

Let us hope that this small cargo bed will become a trend in future EV. 19659002] Honda, IED
