Honda has unveiled the SUV e: prototype, which presents its first electric vehicle in the Chinese market and could preview a future electric HR-V.
The new machine is expected to go on sale in China next year and will be the first of 10 electric vehicles the Japanese company will launch in the country over the next five years.
Although few technical details of the model have been made available, it appears to be closely based on the new Mk3 HR-V crossover, which is expected to go on sale in the UK later this year as a hybrid-only model. The SUV e: prototype has a redesigned grille to reflect the lack of the engine cooler required for electric motors.
Honda currently offers the E city car as the only electric model in the UK. It has yet to reveal any future plans, although an HR-V-sized electric SUV would meet the growing demand for such models.
Honda claims that the e: prototype SUV will offer “dynamic but smooth acceleration” that will allow the driver to “feel the joy of driving”.
It also includes the latest version of the Honda Connect infotainment system, which will allow over-the-air software updates and offers voice recognition technology.
