A "vehicle from the point of view of a dog"
Honda has designed a dog-friendly prototype car.
The W.O.W. Concept, which stands for "wonderful openhearted wagon," features a special crate for dogs in the glove apartment to allow owners to interact with their pets on the road. A bigger crate pops up from the floor in the back seat area and can be folded back into the floor when it's not needed. For bigger dogs, there's a special seat belt attached to the floor.
The W.O.W comes with removable, washable, rollout flooring and has wide sliding doors to keep dogs happy.
"We created this vehicle from the point of view of a dog, but it turned out to be a gentler vehicle for the elderly, children and other family members," said Honda designer Katsuhito Nakamura.
