“I can say the production version is not very different from the concept vehicle. The development of the production vehicle came first,” Iwaki-san said. “The design was done first and only then did we create the concept for the public. The concept has bigger tires and is lower to the ground than the production vehicle and so those differences are there. In reality, the concept version was based on the production car, not the other way around.” Iwaki-san did admit, however, that the final touches are being done on the production Urban EV at this very moment, though many of the concept’s cool exterior styling bits, specifically the “Honda Urban EV Concept” on the front grille won’t be retained due to obvious government-imposed safety regulations.
