A team of thirteen students from the European Institute of Design (IED) in Turin has developed a compact Tomo electric pickup for Honda. The construction of a full-size prototype of the car will be done by the engineering firm EDAG Italia, and its debut will take place in the spring at the Geneva Motor Show.

Designing a pickup has become a thesis for students receiving education under the Master in Transportation Design program. Their task was to come up with an ideal car for young people for the next six years – a kind of gadget on wheels in a practical body and with electric power.

The author of the main exterior design concept was the Mexican Ricardo Alejandro Campos Ortega, and the interior was Rudraksh Banerje from India. The project was supervised by the chief designer of Automobili Pininfarina Luca Bogonyo.

Also in Geneva, Honda will show a prototype close to the series of a new mass electric vehicle based on the 2017 Urban EV concert. The car received a widescreen dashboard and cameras instead of side mirrors.
