The Honda SUV e:concept is an indication of a future model.
Honda has a deal with GM for EV development.
There are no further details at the moment.
Among the major Japanese automakers, only Nissan seems to have taken the plunge into EVs, at least on the surface. In Honda’s corner, they’ve been quiet up until recently when they announced a strategic alliance with GM earlier this month.
Beyond this announcement, Honda’s not displayed any recent concepts or prototypes beyond the very cool Honda e limited to the European and Japanese markets. According to electrek.com, the recently unveiled Honda SUV e:concept, which was introduced at the 2020 Beijing International Automotive Exhibition, is only an indication of the direction that might take a future mass-production model.
“Honda today exhibited the world premiere of the Honda SUV e:concept at the 2020 Beijing International Automotive Exhibition (Auto China 2020). The Honda SUV e:concept is a concept model indicating the direction of a future mass-production model of the Honda brand’s first electric vehicle (EV) to be introduced in China.”
There are no further details available on this concept which seems like a mistake on Honda’s part – now is the time to share information on upcoming EVs especially when major competitors like Volkswagen and Hyundai are turning up the heat.
