According to a report by Auto Motor und Sport, the Honda EV-STER – which made its debut at the 2011 Tokyo Motor Show – will be going into production. Thanks to overwhelming response of the public, Honda has decided to put the car in to production. The initial concept of the EV-STER which made headlines during the Tokyo Motor Show is strapped with a lithium-ion battery pack which powers the electric motors.
At its debut in Tokyo, Honda didn’t provide any technical details but said that the EV-STER features an electric-motor that gets power from a 10kWh lithium-ion battery. The system will allow the Honda EV-STER to go from 0 to 37 mph in 5 seconds with a total range of 99 miles.
Fully charging the Honda EV-STER takes just under 3 hours through a 200V outlet and 6 hours through a 100V. These cars along with the Toyota Prius are in huge demand in United States and in the state of California to be precise. Toyota may have given us the world’s first hyrid car that actually works in the rear world. But, with Honda’s new EV-STER we could be in for a surprise.
