Honda only has one electric car on sale in the UK at the moment, the Honda e city car, however that is all set to change with the news that it is launching a second EV, the snappily-named Honda e:Ny1.
The e:Ny1 is a B-segment SUV with a 68.8kWh battery with an electric driving range of 256 miles. The power drive unit, electric motor and gearbox are all integrated in one unit, delivering 204 PS of power and 310 Nm of torque. A 10% to 80% charge takes 45 minutes at a 100 kW DC charger.
The e:Ny1 based on a new, front-wheel drive electric platform, which features an aerodynamic underfloor.
Honda says that the e:Ny1’s 15.1-inch touchscreen is complemented by an all-new centre console featuring a simple layout of easily accessible buttons, which sounds encouraging.
