No. 378: A single-seater electric vehicle from Honda (December 12, 2011)

Honda Motor unveiled its new single-seaterelectric vehicle that looks like a chair. It is named Uni-Cub. The rider can sit on it as if he sits on a chair. He can travel back and forth and around by operating the lever on the unit. He can move the unit by turning the small level to the direction he wants it to take by the right hand.

Based on the U3-X single-seater electricvehicle released in 2009, it has additional small safety wheels on the rear to increase the stability and facilitate the rotating move. The maximum speed is 10 km per hour, and it allows the elderly and a child to travel long without fatigue. The company plans to commercialize it through substantiative experiments and market it for industrial use in commercial facilities and exhibition sites as well as for personal use.
