Panel-Side Element Concept Vehicle, 'Studio E', Set for NAIAS
The Honda Studio E concept vehicle, a panel-side version of the all-new Honda Element, is set to debut at the North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) on January 6, 2003. Studio E merges a style of nightlife transportation with a high-tech, multi-function platform that can lay tracks - both rubber and audio.
Derived from the Element platform that maximizes versatility for sports equipment, people and the outdoors, Studio E applies this versatility toward an urban crowd for nightlife and music. Studio E's interior operates much like a band's backstage room with adaptable seating that can be configured into a lounge. Additional features include a DJ turntable and extensive on-board audio electronics capable of mixing music or showing videos. The paneled exterior styling features a passenger-side center-opening side cargo door. Aggressive engine tuning, high-performance suspension and a lowered body underscore the city performance edge to Studio E.
Additional information will be released at Studio E's debut during the 2003 North American International Auto Show in Detroit.
