The Honda e gets a 35.5 kWh battery

Honda revealed new details on the all-new e model. The car will be powered by a 35.5 kWh battery which gives it a range of approximately 200 km.

At this year’s Geneva Motor Show, Honda unveiled the Honda e Prototype without giving us much details other than it was close to be production ready. They also gave us a glimpse of the interior.

Now, week after week, the Japanese manufacturer reveals new details. At first it was the colours available, followed by the Honda e “losing” its mirrors in favour of cameras, a bit like the Audi e-tron in Europe. And now, they give us more info on the platform and the battery.

The Honda e will get a water-cooled 35.5 kWh Lithium-ion high-capacity battery that will give it a full range of over 200 km. It will also be the first car built on an all-new dedicated EV platform.

Phil Webb, head of car at Honda UK said: “Confirmation of the chassis, platform, battery and charging details of the Honda e marks a key milestone in our preparations to unveil the final production version of the model later this year. I’m looking forward to seeing the Honda e Prototype in action for the first time in the UK at the Goodwood Festival of Speed next month.”

Designed with a “specific focus on urban environments” the Honda e’s battery system will be positioned centrally to give the car a perfect 50:50 weight distribution.

As for the charging port, Honda confirms it will be integrated into the hood of the EV and will be visible through a glass panel.
