Honda has unveiled its all-new e:Ny1 EV, designed to meet growing customer demand for all-electric B-segment SUVs.
The e:Ny1 is built on Honda’s newly-developed e:N Architecture F – a front-motor-driven platform – which incorporates a high-performance, lightweight three-in-one integrated power drive unit, electric motor and gearbox.
This generates a maximum output of 150 kW, 310 Nm of torque and is engineered to provide smooth and comfortable acceleration and deceleration.
Under the floor sits a high-capacity lithium-ion battery that delivers up to 412 km (WLTP) of range and DC fast-charging capability that can go from 10 to 80% in 45 minutes.
The all-new chassis developed specifically for battery electric vehicles has ensured improved torsional rigidity – key to this is high-tensile steel, used across 47% of the e:Ny1’s body.
A centre console features a simple layout of easily accessible buttons, multiple storage options and wireless charging, while the dashboard is topped by a large 15.1-inch touchscreen which provides access to a suite of infotainment and driving options.
The e:Ny1 also includes an all-new electric identity for Honda, with white ‘H’ badges featuring around the vehicle, including the nose badge, wheel centre caps and steering wheel.
It is Honda’s second fully electric vehicle to arrive in Europe, following on from the e city car.
Tom Gardner, Senior Vice President at Honda Motor Europe said, “The e:Ny1 is the logical next step on our electrification journey in Europe.
“Our development philosophy blends intelligent, customer-centric technology with beautiful design and fun-to-drive dynamics.
“This latest SUV exemplifies Honda’s commitment to electrification and is the latest step on Honda’s electrification journey.”
