Derek loves nothing more than punching a remote location into a GPS, queuing up some music and heading out on a long drive, so it's a good thing he's in charge of CNET Australia's Car Tech channel.

A small, attractive, lightweight electric sports car. Sounds like something that might inject some verve back into the Honda brand. If it ever builds it, that is.

The EV-STER is an exciting new concept sports car unveiled at the 2011 Tokyo Motor Show by Honda Motor Company. It is a two-seater with a carbon fiber body to reduce weight. The EV-STER is equipped with a lithium-ion battery and has an output of 78 horsepower. Honda says it sprints from zero to 37 mph in 5.0 seconds and has a range of about 99 miles. Its styling takes cues from the CR-Z and S2000 but the EV-STER is significantly smaller than those cars, it rides on a 91.5-inch wheelbase and is 12 feet long. Honda plans to offer the production version of the car with either a gasoline engine or as a pure electric vehicle. .
