Honda showcases two-seater electric microcar CI-MEV with level-4 ADAS at Japan Auto Show

10/25/20232 min read

In a dazzling showcase at the Japan Auto Show, Honda Cars has introduced the world to the future of electric microcars - the CI-MEV. This cutting-edge creation is not just another EV; it's the world's first two-seater electric vehicle to be equipped with Level 4 Advanced Driver Assistance System (ADAS) technology. But that's merely the surface of the ocean of innovation.

Daring to be Different

The CI-MEV, codenamed for now, is a microcar that defies expectations. It's not just a diminutive electric vehicle; it's a technological marvel. It can even run on three wheels, adding a touch of versatility to its charm. This innovation from Honda has been one of the most eagerly anticipated models at the Japan Auto Show in Tokyo. And that's saying something, considering Honda's impressive lineup, which includes their earlier revelation of a flying car and the Prelude electric SUV.

Size Matters

If the CI-MEV reminds you of MG Motor's Comet EV, you're not far off the mark. However, one key distinction sets them apart – the CI-MEV is a two-seater, in contrast to the four-seater MG Comet EV. But what really sets this micro electric car apart is its sensory arsenal. It's equipped with six wide-angle cameras, including ones on the A-pillars, door mirrors, and the rear sides of the body, offering an unparalleled 360-degree view of the surrounding environment. This, combined with cameras on the front and rear, allows for advanced detection of vehicles, bicycles, and pedestrians. Honda proudly proclaims that the CI-MEV is adorned with Level 4 ADAS technology.

A Compact Marvel

The CI-MEV isn't just smaller; it's smarter and more agile. With a tight turning radius, it's the ideal solution for navigating urban environments. Honda employs their Cooperative Intelligence (CI) and autonomous driving technology to create a vehicle designed as a demonstration model for four-wheel electric mobility. The intended usage is nothing short of futuristic – summon the CI-MEV to your current location, step into the self-driving vehicle that arrives at your doorstep, and simply voice your destination.

Eco-Friendly and Innovative

The CI-MEV is more than just a compact vehicle; it's a commitment to sustainability. It houses four removable batteries, referred to as Honda Mobile Power Packs, located at the bottom of the trunk. These batteries are charged with green electricity, reducing the reliance on petroleum and making the CI-MEV a beacon of eco-friendliness.

In a world of ever-evolving automotive technology, the CI-MEV stands as a beacon of innovation. With its sleek design, cutting-edge ADAS, and commitment to eco-friendliness, Honda is redefining mobility. The CI-MEV isn't just a car; it's a glimpse into the future of transportation.
