With the influx of new city cars such as the Honda Fit, Honda's Advanced Design Studio looked beyond current models to come up with a concept for what a future city car would look like. The result? The Personal-Neo Urban Transport, or P-NUT.

The P-NUT is designed to have its propulsion in the rear, with a variety of motive units possible from a small internal combustion engine to an electric motor.

The large windscreen area gives the P-NUT driver excellent visibility. The driver sits alone in front, while two rear seats can accommodate passengers or fold up for cargo space.

The concept is intended to also have a head-up display, taking the place of a traditional instrument cluster.
