Receiving its European show debut in Geneva, the Honda NeuV is a fully electric concept car with a unique ownership proposition and what Honda describes as a state-of-the-art ‘emotion engine’ that can learn about its driver.
The pure electric concept car explores a financially-beneficial ownership model, by functioning as an automated ride sharing vehicle when the owner is not using the car. It would pick up and drop off customers at local destinations, and could also sell energy back to the electric grid during times of high demand when it‘s sitting idle, further monetising the vehicle’s down time.
NeuV also functions as a thoughtful and helpful artificial intelligence assistant utilising an ‘emotion engine’, which learns from the driver by detecting the emotions behind their judgments. It can then apply what it has learnt from the driver’s past decisions to make new choices and recommendations.
