Honda has revealed their first EV that will use their own dedicated EV platform, the e:Ny1.

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.

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.

That was my thought too, Maybe. More and more studies show that buttons and knobs are a better UI than a screen for the most common things. Too many screens and menus can be a safety hazard while driving.
It's also going to be over priced. U.S. consumers want EV's in $25,000 to $40,000 land and not over. Thus Tesla dropping prices to move stagnating inventory.
