All-New Honda EV Making First Appearance at Shanghai Auto Show

First Honda EV for China

  • First EV for China from Honda coming this month

  • Automaker also planning to show a new PHEV


Honda has said it is planning to reveal an all-new EV at the Shanghai auto show later this month. It will be a prototype for the brand’s first EV to be offered in that country.

There are no details on the new model yet, but for the brand’s first EV in the biggest EV market in the world, we’re expecting big things. Rumours suggest that it could be a production version of the Honda SUV e:concept that the brand brought to the Beijing show last September. That was a compact two-door crossover with sharp modern lines and just enough of Honda’s current design language in the nose.

That concept was said to have new driver-assist systems including new versions of Honda Sensing and a next-gen Honda Connect infotainment system with AI interface and OTA updates. Since Honda isn’t saying more than that they’re bringing the prototype EV to the show, we’re not sure what exactly will be there. We do know that when Honda refers to a vehicle as a prototype, that means it’s about 99 percent of what the production model will be.

Honda is also planning to bring a new PHEV model to the show. With the plug-in CR-V already named to the list of vehicles, we’re not sure what exactly the brand has planned. A PHEV Honda Civic or Insight could make an appearance, as could one of Honda and Acura’s many crossover models, but we’ll need to wait for the show.
