Honda showcased its second fully electric vehicle Friday at a media event in Germany. The new Honda e:Ny1 electric SUV will be the first model to ride on the automaker’s new dedicated EV platform.
Meet the new Honda e:Ny1 electric SUV
The new electric SUV will mark several firsts for the Japanese automaker. According to Honda, the e:Ny1 will feature an all-new design language for Honda EVs, although it looks eerily similar to the gas-powered HR-V model.
The exterior includes white “H” badges around the vehicle and a new “Honda” emblem on the back that will be featured on the automaker’s new electric models.
In addition, the e:Ny1 will be the first to ride on Honda’s new e:N Architecture F. The dedicated EV platform is designed with a low center of gravity and under-floor aerodynamics for a dynamic driving experience.
Powered by a single front motor, Honda’s new B-segment electric SUV delivers 201 hp (150 kW) and 228 lb-ft of torque (310 Nm). With a 68.8 kWh lithium-ion battery, the e:Ny1 has up to 256 miles (412 km) WLTP range and the ability to fast charge from 10% to 80% in 45 minutes.
On the inside, you will find a brand new center console with a simple, modern layout designed for functionality with wireless charging and an extensive 15.1-inch touchscreen infotainment.
The Honda e:Ny1 will go on sale in Europe later this year and is designed to meet the growing demand for electric B-segment SUVs in the region.
