Honda generally doesn’t do concepts. When they show a “concept” at a big North American auto show, it’s usually a pre-production version of one of their upcoming models. That’s why it’s significant that Honda decided to bring the EV-STER roadster concept for this year’s American auto show circuit. The EV-STER was first introduced at the 2011 Tokyo auto show and later that year Honda announced that it was going to make and sell a car based on the concept , though it wasn’t clear if the EV-STER’s electric drivetrain would survive the transition to production. More likely it would be powered by the hybrid powertrain in the CR-Z and be the spiritual successor to Honda’s midengine Beat Kei car. Chances are good that the pistol gripped yoke will be replaced by a more conventional steering wheel. When the EV-STER showed up at the Los Angeles show in late 2012, it was speculated that Honda was measuring consumer interest in bringing the little roadster to the US. Since then, the EV-STER was on display at both the NAIAS in Detroit and the Chicago Auto Show, so that speculation may be well founded.
