Honda Aims to Please the Family of the Future with the P-NUT Concept

Honda has been working feverishly on their small car market for quite some time now, and for a good reason. A large part of the market today is looking for small, fuel efficient vehicles. Their latest concept, dubbed the P-NUT offers exactly that.

The P-NUT made its debut at this year's Los Angeles Auto Show and stands for Personal Neo-Urban Transport, which explains its small size and open design. The P-NUT concept uses a modular rear engine design that would be able to house several different drive-trains, depending on the needs of the driver.

Measuring a miniscule 11'2" long, 5'8" wide and 4'7" high, the P-NUT would be able to fit into just about any parking spot you could want. Up to three people can be seated, with the driver located centrally and 2 seats flanking. The rear seats can also be folded down to increase your available storage area.

While the design for the P-NUT is comparatively mild, one thing does stick out; the windshield/roof. This was done to offer a place for the built in HUD to project information to the driver in real time.

If Honda decides to move forward with the P-NUT concept, expect to see it sometime before 2012.
