Ever since its debut at the 2011 Tokyo Motor Show, the Honda EV-STER Concept has been at the center of speculation and rumors of whether or not it’ll become a production model.

Its peculiar appearance at the 2012 Los Angeles Auto Show will undoubtedly stir the pot some more as the Japanese automaker is clearly interested in what American consumers have to say about the EV-STER Concept.

Rumor has it that Honda wants to revive its Beat model and that the EV-STER Concept is a preview at its future design. In fact, the concept is the car that excites Honda President Takanobu Ito the most. Honda had confirmed late last year that the EV-STER Concept was heading to production, though there were still several variables yet to be decided – its powerplant, for example.

If feedback and suggestions are what the automaker wants, Los Angeles is definitely the place for it with its diverse collection of automotive enthusiasts and consumers with a penchant for electric cars.
