Honda Develops New Personal Mobility Device for Lease

December 4th, 2013 by

While Honda is known worldwide for building powerful, stylish, safe, and efficient new cars like the Odyssey minivan and Civic sedan, it also has its hand in a bevy of other high-tech projects.  Its engineers are responsible for building robots, motorcycles, planes, generators, and now, a motorized unicycle that’s unlike anything we’ve ever seen before.

It’s called the Uni Cub ?, and it will make its international debut at the Tokyo Motor Show.  Much like the Segway, it’s a personal mobility device that has the potential to change the way that people get around in urban settings.  The automaker intends to produce and lease this unique vehicle to business and organizations in China.  It’ll be very interesting to see how this whole idea takes off, and we know that our tired legs would probably welcome the chance to travel on it rather than walking miles every day.

It’s a revamp of the automaker’s original Uni Cub design, and the beta version has a lower seat, is smaller and lighter, and is made from enhanced materials.

It has a top speed of 3 miles per hour and has a traveling range of 3 miles, so it’ll allow you to travel at a walking pace without tiring you out.  We can’t wait to see its applications, and we’ll keep you updated on any new project developments here on the Preston Honda blog.
