Honda unveils two new electric cars

Japan’s Honda continues to expand its range of electric vehicles. Honda has unveiled two new electric-powered vehicles – the e:NS1 and e:NP1 crossovers.

It is reported by the press service of the manufacturer. The new models of electric cars will be produced by a joint venture of Dongfeng Honda.

Crossovers e:NS1 and e:NP1 have a design reminiscent of the popular Honda HR-V. Novelties received all-LED headlights, and a modern lithium-ion battery will allow to cover about 510 km. Both models are largely unified, but the e:NS1 is aimed primarily at those who are impressed with the trendy ‘off-road’ style. The crossover received a black plastic dodger. Other differences between the ‘twins’ are the different design of the front fascia, as well as different bumpers.

The interior of the models is completely unique, having no analogues in the modern model range of the company. The central place on the dashboard is taken by a large touchscreen infotainment system, which is responsible for auxiliary functions, including control of the climate system. All operational information for the driver is displayed on a compact display, replacing the traditional analogue instrument scale. The interior features ambient lighting, wireless charging for smartphones, several USB-C ports and black and white leather trim.

Dongfeng Honda will start selling the e:NS1 and e:NP1 crossovers through dedicated dealerships in major metropolitan areas including Beijing, Shanghai and Guangzhou. In addition, there will be a dedicated online website for customers to order the new vehicles remotely. The joint venture intends to offer Chinese consumers a palette of 10 models from the e:N series by 2027.
