The Montreal Motor Show is mostly ignored by the press, but that hasn't stopped Honda from using the event to introduce the Gear concept.

Inspired by fixed-gear bicycles, the Gear is described as a simple and utilitarian model that is "customizable, connected and full of personality." Speaking of the latter, the concept has a wedge-shaped design which incorporates rounded surfaces and translucent accents. There's also hidden door handles, a rear diffuser and what appears to be a center-mounted four tailpipe exhaust system.

Honda declined to release powertrain details but Dave Marek, Design Director at Honda R&D Americas, said the Gear is "Fun, customizable, connected and affordable. Everything that young, discerning urban buyers would want in a car.”
