HONDA’S new e:Ny1 is the brand’s second fully electric vehicle (EV) for Europe, combining a new design approach with exceptional interior quality and advanced technology to create a compelling modern family car.
The e:Ny1 uses Honda’s newly-developed e:N Architecture high-performance front-motor-driven platform, which will be used in B-segment electric vehicles globally. The brand’s latest battery management technology delivers a WLTP range of 412km (256 miles), and fast charging to deliver a 10-80% charge time of approximately 45 minutes. The compact architecture has also allowed for more freedom in packaging with all components housed over the front axle.
To set it apart as a battery electric vehicle, the e:Ny1 has a sophisticated character defined by a smooth, flowing design concept. The sleek, expressive headlights are neatly integrated into the bold face, which incorporates a clever rotating grille panel that provides access to the car’s charging port behind. Integrated taillights are connected by a full width LED light bar across the tailgate, while the range of standout paint options includes an eye-catching new Aqua Topaz colour.
To further reflect its unique standing in the Honda range, the model debuts a new EV identity. The white ‘H’ badge on the front becomes a new symbol of Honda electrification, along with a smart new typeface for the brand name at the rear.
Thanks to the clever packaging of the electric drivetrain components, including the placement of the battery under the floor, the interior is spacious and comfortable for all occupants. High quality cabin materials and luxurious seats make for an exceptional interior ambiance, while the digital instrument panel and large central touchscreen headline a comprehensive range of technology features that keep occupants connected and informed while on the move.
The e:Ny1 is the latest vehicle to feature the Honda SENSING suite of safety technologies as standard to offer impressive all-round collision performance and reduce driver burden through a range of advanced driver-assist systems.
