The EV-N's aesthetic lands somewhere between robot-pug and plastic panda. However, hints of the true source of inspiration can be found in the EV-N moniker. Take a look at the Honda N 360 of the 60s and you'll see what I mean.
If you look close, you'll see that the flap covering the charger is shaped like a two-pronged electrical plug. Other design cues include a rear hatch that aligns with the belt line. We're not sure how that will help with loading/unloading, but it looks pretty neat.
