General Motors plans for 20 new electric cars by 2023, and we have a feeling one of them will, in fact, be a sporty coupe of sorts. However, Honda may beat GM to the game after it revealed a follow-up to the Honda Urban EV concept: the Sports EV concept.
The Sports EV concept clearly takes inspiration from the Honda S600, another sports coupe from the company produced in the 1960s, but the front and rear fascia emulate the retro Urban EV concept. Honda did not, however, disclose any electric powertrain details. Nor did it say which wheels drive the car. We can only assume this is a rear-wheel-drive car.
Whatever the performance specifications, Honda said it wanted to create a joyful and emotional car.
Although electric cars are likely some time away from mass adoption, we firmly believe the industry is due for more fun-to-drive EVs. Autocrossing a Chevrolet Bolt EV is one thing, but building a proper electric sports car is a completely different realm. Hopefully, GM is on deck.
