Honda e Prototype

The all-electric, rear-wheel drive Honda e Prototype has been previewed at the 2019 Geneva International Motor Show, and Honda has announced its ambition to make 100% of its European car sales electrified by 2025.

Designed for urban use, the Honda e Prototype will have a driving range of over 124 miles and a ‘fast charge’ functionality of 80% battery charge in 30 minutes.

The Honda e Prototype follows on from the 2017 Urban EV Concept. The e Prototype features flush ‘pop out’ door handles and compact cameras replacing traditional side view mirrors.

Beneath the skin is an all-new, EV-specific platform allowing a relatively long wheelbase, wide track and short overhangs.

The interior features a dual screen horizontal display with a range of applications and services.

Screens showing the rear-view images relayed from the Camera Mirror System are integrated at either end of the dashboard. The vehicle also features a digital rear view camera.

Honda e Prototype production will start later this year.

Early in 2019, Honda launched the all-new CR-V Hybrid, featuring its two-motor i-MMD full hybrid technology. Honda expects full hybrid technology to play a key role in meeting its aims of 100% electrification by 2025.

Honda also took the opportunity of its Geneva press conference to share the first details of its developing energy management solutions business for Europe. This announcement builds on the Power Manager bi-directional charging concept first shown at Frankfurt motor show in 2017.

Honda intends to build a portfolio of energy management products and services offering a comprehensive solution for both EV customers and service operators in Europe.

Honda has been working with EVTEC to further develop its bi-directional Honda Power Manager technology (compatible with battery-electric vehicles, such as the Honda e Prototype) and will plan to offer a commercial version in the coming years.

Honda has also announced an agreement with two external partners:

• Moixa, a company who specialise in ‘resource aggregator‘ technology, allowing customers to benefit from sharing the control and capacity of their EV battery

• Ubitricity, a leading supplier of charging solutions, including an innovative approach to on-street charging in urban areas.
