Starting April 27, Honda is offering demonstrations of its Uni-Cub Î² personal mobility vehicle for a fee at its Nihonbashi Mitsukoshi main store.
The Uni-Cub Î²is a new personal utility vehicle that employs Honda’s proprietary balance control technology and omnidirectional driving. In April 2014, it began offering a free rental service for businesspeople but now it is launching a permanent rental service. It plans to create new business models and expand the model’s uses.
Uni-Cub Î²demonstrations are held at places such as the Hajimari CafÃ© on the 7th floor of Honda’s Nihonbashi Mitsukoshi main store where users are directed by staff to line up and can then take a tour. The demonstration takes a total of 30 minutes including a lecture for users and the fee is 1,080 yen.
