Honda to Roll Out New EV Concept at L.A. Auto Show

For a company that rolled out one of the first hybrids in America, Honda has fallen behind in the electric vehicle race. They seem to realize this though, and will debut a new EV concept at the L.A. Auto Show.

Details on what exactly this new EV concept will be are non-existent, though Honda has provided us with the time and location of the unveiling. Wednesday, November 17th at the L.A. Auto Show, around 1:20 pm. If you can’t make it to the show, they will be live-streaming the webcast.

Could it have something to do with Honda’s plan to ditch nickel-metal hydride batteries in favor of lithium-ion packs? Maybe.

Personally, I’m hoping for an all-electric CR-Z concept, which to me would make the most sense. It is their newest car, already has a hybrid setup, and the spotlight has been firmly set on it since it first debuted over three years ago. Maybe this is just wishful thinking, but a sporty, all-electric CR-Z for under $30,000 would definitely tempt me and my wallet.

It could be just about anything though, from a new NSX concept (like the Sports Car Concept above we first saw in 2007) to CR-V. What kind of electric vehicle concept are you hoping Honda rolls out in L.A?
