After Honda's little Urban EV concept rocked the Frankfurt motor show, the brand had a lot to live up to at its home display – the Tokyo motor show. It's therefore arrived with what should be a winning formula – an all-electric sports car, with cheeky styling to match the Urban EV.

It's called the Honda Sports EV Concept, and recalls the styling of the S600 and S800 coupes of the 1960s. Up front, it has the same cheeky retro-inspired face as the Urban EV, but from there-on back it's a much more conventional 'sports car' – smooth curves, a sleek, sloping roofline, and long bonnet.
