The streamlined EV is based on the same platform as the boxy Urban EV Concept.

Honda has released the first teaser image for its Sports EV Concept, slated for a global debut in Tokyo.

The streamlined electric coupe is said to be underpinned by the same platform as the chunky Urban EV Concept that Honda unveiled earlier this month in Frankfurt.

"Its unforgettable silhouette, friendly front fascia that naturally blends into any lifestyle, and supple surfaces make it a next-generation sports car that brings joy and emotional attachment in ownership," the company says.

The teaser sketch hints at a low-slung coupe with a wide stance that evokes the S2000 from the rear quarter view. The design is curvier and less faceted than patent drawings for the rumored 'baby NSX.'
