That Cute Honda Urban Ev? Customers Can Place Orders Early Next Year

That cute Honda Urban EV? Customers can place orders early next year

No matter how concept-like it might look, Honda is adamant in making the Urban EV a production car. At the Geneva Motor Show, Honda announced that orders for the Urban EV will be taken from early next year. Prices have not yet been confirmed.

Honda Motor Europe's Philip Ross told the crowd at a press conference: "A production version of this highly acclaimed concept will be introduced to Europe during late 2019, and in response to the positive feedback to this model, we expect to open order banks for the Urban EV during early 2019." U.S.-market sales plans remain unannounced, but we'd imagine there are plenty of Honda drivers that would welcome the Urban EV — especially the kind of early adopters who took to the original, dainty Insight hybrid.

Nissan Claims Its Leaf Ev Pre-orders Are Over 13,000

Nissan Claims Its Leaf EV Pre-Orders Are Over 13,000These days electric cars and vehicles in general are becoming more common, and Nissan's Leaf EV has actually been around for a while now. However it seems that the company's latest Leaf which was unveiled last year could be off to a great start because Nissan has told Engadget that they have received over 13,000 pre-orders of the car to date.


The new Nissan Leaf is said to feature a new extended range of up to 150 miles on a single charge, with a price point starting at $30,000 before tax credit, which makes it a whole sight cheaper than some of the alternatives out there, such as Tesla's electric cars. The fact that it can be pre-ordered and delivered within 2018 also makes it an attractive option for customers who'd rather not wait a couple of years before their car is available to them.

Sharp & Lg Reportedly Competing For Apple's Oled Orders

Sharp & LG Reportedly Competing For Apple's OLED Orders

Some of the technical advantages of LED versus LCD technology are clear enough to see why LED display technology is the way of the future, at least for now. It is also why it wouldn't be surprising to see Apple start to incorporate more OLED displays into its other products as well, going beyond iPhones.

What this means is that Apple will need a lot of components, and this is something that both Sharp and LG are looking to take advantage of. In a report from DigiTimes (via 9to5Mac), it seems that both Sharp and LG are competing with each for Apple's OLED orders, which if the rumors are true could be used in more than one iPhone this year.
