Honda turned up at this year’s Tokyo Motor Show with a number of nice concepts, all of them with joysticks for steering! This is the their futuristic sedan, the AC-X concept.
AC-X stands for Advanced Cruiser Experience and refers to the car’s main highlight which is a comfortable and enjoyable long-distance cruise.They way they arrived at that is by a new innovative “automatic driving mode.” They have not provided details of this system, but it’s not likely they have cracked fully autonomous driving.
It will also work well in the city with its plug-in hybrid powertrain. It has 1.6-litre 4-cylinder engine and two electric motors. In EV mode it can reach up to 100 km/h and has a range of 50km.
It is apparently designed to reduce the stress of driving. Is it a cool way of saying it’ll be boring?!
Honda is yet to release more details on this car’s technologies.
