In dimensions, the concept car is actually a relatively small city car. The car concept has a size just a little bigger than Volkswagen Golf. Even so, the embedding of an electrically powered drive system that has minimal components makes the cabin space more spacious. Full autonomous driving technology also makes the car unnecessary the human intervention to operate it when used.

The progress of autonomous technology which is increasingly progressing itself is projected to make people have enough free time when traveling. It seem Hanbeom Lee think that among those free times, the one that definitely attracts the car passengers is the hot bath and the Onsen design facilitates that desire.

The car design consists of two partitions with two seats facing each other. Cylindrical cell-shaped rear partition with 'gimbal technology' which makes it completely sealed from the front row seats and able to accommodate water in certain volume.

By simply pressing the button, hot water can flow out to a certain maximum extent. With this capability, the car passengers who want to relax on their long trips or got badly traffic jammed, they can move to the rear row seats for hot showers. And while on those activity can do it alone or together with a partner.

Unfortunately, it was not explained whether Honda would consider realizing this Honda Onsen later. Well, do not be too hopeful, because until now there's no Honda's official statement about this concept car, moreover about time when the car will be realized.

Surely the idea of ​​taking a hot bath while on traveling is quite an interesting thing. Especially in the countries that have a long distances traveling tradition by using vehicles or can be used as the on-line sharing vehicles to transport tourists toward the recreation areas.
