Honda Bringing New EV to Auto China 2020

Honda EV concept, plug-in CR-V at Beijing Auto Show

  • Sharp-nosed concept EV for rescheduled show

  • Will be Honda’s first EV in China

 


Honda is getting ready for an auto show once again. The Beijing International Automotive Exhibition (Auto China 2020) is set to happen at the end of the month, after being pushed back from April because of, well, you know, and Honda, Acura, and Honda Motorcycles will have vehicles for us all to see.

The big deal will be a new concept car that Honda says will show what the brand’s first EV for China will look like. It’s just a tease, but what we can see is a sharp-looking headlight with multi-spoke wheels and a very Accord-looking grille complete with light-up line above the nose.

Expect to see the light-up Honda H badge available for tuner Hondas on eBay a few seconds after we see the concept car September 25th.

The car is a far cry from Honda’s other EVs, the oddly-styled Clarity (also available in fuel-cell and PHEV models) and the Honda E, that delightfully retro-styled city car EV that evokes the best of 1960s Honda styling with all-electric modern underpinnings.

China is now the largest auto market in the world, and the country is big on EVs, so this new EV concept car could be a very big deal for the brand.

Also on display will be Honda’s CR-V PHEV, the first Honda with a plug in China. They’ll also have other electrified models and conventional vehicles on display.

While GM and Honda have already announced an EV collaboration using GM’s Ultium system, this will not be one of those. Don’t expect to see any of those models for at least a couple of years.

Acura will have its current lineup on display, and Honda Motorcycles will have an extensive array of 50-190cc bikes.
