The Honda MBEV (Mobile Battery EV) is a concept car that was first unveiled at the latest Tokyo Motor Show. This vehicle is a compact two-seater that's comparable in form to a golf cart with a body of polymer paneling and contrasting orange rails.

The name of the vehicle captures what makes the Honda MBEV so innovative. In addition to unveiling the car as a whole at the automotive show, Honda introduced its all-new mobile battery packs, which the automotive brand is proposing as a renewable energy source that can be slotted into the car on the go. What makes this significant is that a user can simply select the battery capacity needed to meet their desired driving needs.

At the Tokyo Motor Show, this vehicle was on display as part of the Smart Mobility City 2015 project, which spotlights thoughtful ideas that are playing a part in reshaping lifestyles, society and transportation.
