The vehicle uses a chassis constructed from Honda's rigid but lightweight pipe frame structure, and 3D printing techniques have been used to create the exterior panels and luggage space. The Micro Commuter is powered by Honda's Micro EV technology, designed for short-range trips up to approximately 80 km (50 miles) and is used on the MC- β ultra compact EV in Japan.

This unique car differs from other examples of Honda micro EVs in providing space for a driver only and a generous space to carry deliveries of sweet treats. It will conduct local deliveries of Toshiyama's most famous product, dove shaped shortbread, 'Hato sablé''.
