Honda joins GAC to produce an electric HR-V … in China!

To accelerate the electrification of its fleet in the largest car market in the world, Honda has decided to join forces with its Chinese partner, GAC, for the upcoming commercialization of a fully electric HR-V.

Called Honda Everus VE-1, this rechargeable HR-V is currently only intended for the Chinese market, a necessary measure since the implementation of stricter rules for manufacturers established in China. The new small utility was introduced at the Guangzhou China Show and will cost 170,800 yuan (or just over 32,000 Canadian dollars based on the prevailing exchange rate) after government rebates.

Equipped with an electric motor of 120 kW and a 53.6 kWh battery pack, the Honda Everus VE-1 is capable of driving, in theory, a distance of 340 km.

At the time of writing, this exclusive-to-China model will not be offered in Canada, especially since the electric range of Honda in America is not very big. Indeed, only the Honda Clarity Electric sedan can be described as pure electric, and this model is not even available in Canada, the Canadian division having privileged the PHEV version instead.

The Honda Everus VE-1 demonstrates that it is possible to turn the small HR-V into a relatively affordable electric vehicle.
