Honda has shown off a new electric scooter at the Tokyo Motor Show 2011, called the Motor Compo, this electric scooter can be folded down to make it more portable, and as you can see from the photos it features a unique design.

The Honda Motor Compo is just 3 feet long and 4 feet tall, and it has been designed to fit easily into Honda’s micro commuter concept vehicle, and it features a removable battery that can also be used to power electronic devices. The Micro Commuter Concept is part of Honda’s commitment to reduce its cars’ average CO2 output by 30 per cent by 2020 based on 2005 emission levels. Powered by a 3.3kWh lithium-ion battery, it has a maximum speed of 37mph, gets there in 7.4sec and has a range of 37 miles.

Totally connected with smart phone technology, this Honda will download destinations, appointments and so on and display them on the dashboard. One smart move is an auxillary “loop” battery that powers ancillaries such as the air conditioning, but which can be removed when you reach your destination and used to power a tiny electrical bike.

The Motor Compo comes its own built in smartphone dock and is front wheel drive, we have no idea whether Honda will decide to put this electric scooter into production.
