TOKYO -- Honda Motor will soon begin field testing microsized electric vehicles equipped for mapless autonomous driving as part of an initiative to develop next-generation mobility services.

Honda on Wednesday conducted a demonstration of micromobility machines. One was a single-seat minicar that looked like a shrunken phone booth. There were also a two-seat minicar as well as a four-passenger model that resembled a golf cart.
