Honda E Revealed Before Frankfurt Debut

Honda released a pair of pictures of their all-new e before its world premiere at the Frankfurt Motor Show this month.

Two years ago, at the 2017 Frankfurt Motor Show, Honda unveiled the Honda Urban EV Concept. Two years later, the carmaker presents, at the same Autoshow where it all began, the final mass production form of this concept, the Honda e.

After a lot of teasing the Japanese manufacturer finally lift veil on their all-electric urban hatch, the Honda e. Set for its official debut at the 2019 Frankfurt Motor Show next week, the production version of Honda’s new EV can be fully seen for the first time.

Powered by a 35.5 kWh battery, the small hatch will be available in two power outputs of 100 kW (or around 134 hp) or 113kW (or around 152 hp) and a notable 233 lb-ft of torque (or 315Nm). This will give the Honda e a range of up to 219 km.

The sporty EV will be rear-wheel drive and will be able to sprint to 100 km/h in about 8 seconds, according to Honda.

The Honda e is focusing a lot on technologies when we get inside the cabin. The fully digital instrument panel, which is accompanied by a dual 12.3-inch LCD touchscreens setup, shows you just that.

Furthermore, the Japanese manufacturer added the Honda Personal Assistant service in the e. This smart artificial intelligence system “uses unique contextual understanding to create natural conversations and provide access to a range of online services.”

Honda also joins Audi and Lexus, among others, in incorporating digital side-view mirrors. Indeed, the Side Camera Mirror System improves the aerodynamics and styling of the Honda e. Two six-inch screens, each side of the dashboard, provides live images to the driver.
