Only yesterday, Honda Motor Co. introduced the general public to its Micro Commuter Prototype, which is basically a rather small electric vehicle meant to cover short distances first and foremost.

The company's official website explains that, when coming up with the idea for this micro-sized EV, they thought about satisfying the needs of families with small children and senior citizens.

As well as this, the car is expected to serve those in charge of running delivery services businesses and those who have to commute to work.

Apparently, this car can reach the top speed of 80 km/h (roughly 50 miles/hour), can cover approximately 60 kilometers (about 37 miles) before it runs out of power, and takes less than 3 hours to recharge.

The first demonstration tests for this EV will be carried out in Japan during the following year.
