Honda has unveiled its new e:N2 Concept electric vehicle (EV) at a world premiere today at the fifth China International Import Expo in Shanghai, China. The concept model is the second of its e:N Series models and represents the direction the brand is heading with its new electric cars.
The exterior design of the e:N2 Concept features sleek, sharp and dynamic body lines. Its surface finishing highlights the metallic look and Honda says the overall aesthetic is aiming to present a new styling that does not belong to any existing categories.
The company says that the interior has been designed to create the value of the electric car as a ‘space’ where occupants can enjoy ‘intellectual exhilaration’. To help achieve this Honda has designed a clean and uncluttered digital cockpit to create smart hospitality for the occupants. They have also added all the latest Honda CONNECT features as well as using effective lighting and scents to help create a relaxing environment.
As for driving performance, the e:N2 Concept is built on the e:N Architecture F. This is a dedicated architecture developed exclusively for the e:N Series. Honda says the e:N2 Concept was designed to achieve unique driving pleasure, that enables the driver to enjoy a strong sense of unity with the vehicle.
Apparently, this sense of unity has been realised using dynamics technologies of Honda, including outstanding vehicle stability and crisp handling. No range or performance figures have been released as yet.
Toshihiro Mibe, director, president and representative executive officer of Honda Motor Co., Ltd., said: “The e:N2 Concept represents the value of our e:N Series, which will redefine the fun EVs can offer to customers with their unique driving pleasure, the value as a mobility space and design.
“In China, Honda will continue delivering a broad range of electrified mobility products unique only to Honda and experience our rebirth into an electric mobility brand.”
