There’s a good reason why the Honda Civic Type R is manual-only

  There’s a good reason why the Honda Civic Type R is manual-only When it comes to the new Civic Type R, Honda firmly believes weight is the enemySpeaking with Australia’s Motoring, Honda powertrain head Yuji Matsumochi says there’s one key reason the all-new Civic Type R comes exclusively with a six-speed manual. As with many performance cars, weight is the enemy – and anything that wasn’t a traditional manual transmission not only would’ve made the powertrain itself too heavy, but it also would’ve thrown off the Civic Type R’s already front-biased weight distribution.

To this, Honda ’s answer is the Honda Urban EV Concept . Built upon a newly developed EV -only platform, the Honda Urban EV Concept is a compact car , ideal for urban driving.

Honda Registers Cabin Design With Floating Instrument Cluster

Between the two circular headlights at the front, there’s a display projecting information such as greetings, advice for other drivers on the road, or charging status updates. The recipe is similar at the back, where the car will display the current charging status of the batteries and the logo of the marque.

Inside the cabin, thankfully, there’s a steering wheel, as well as pedals and a windscreen with slim A-pillars. The minimalistic layout of the interior includes two bench seats for a total of four passengers, a large dashboard console with wood finish, and a wrap-around screen that runs behind the dash and extends into the doors.

The central part of the display presents information about the vehicle status, including range, remaining battery life, and energy consumption, while the extended door screens function as the car’s wing mirrors through digital camera displays.
