Honda Urban EV - the Honda e
The driver will be comfortably insulated in a virtually soundless world. There are no gears, just the light touch of the accelerator pedal delivering seamlessly smooth power from a source that’s clean and efficient, with zero emissions. Welcome to a new age of driving a Honda!
The Honda Research &Development team won the Car Design Award 2018 for making a significant contribution to the evolution of car design with the Honda Urban EV Concept.
Paring down the traditional car, the Honda e takes simplicity as its key and reduces the number of moving parts inside the vehicle for greater efficiency and easier maintenance.
The interior gives a sense of light and space. Everything is open-plan, with clean lines and neat storage. Everything has its place and the full width digital dashboard shows all that is happening in the car.
Wing mirrors are replaced by video cameras which virtually eliminate blind spots and reduce drag. The gear stick is replaced by buttons for drive, reverse and park.
Charging times are an average of 6 - 8 hours on purely electric cars. Rapid charging points can top up batteries to 80% capacity in around 30 minutes. Range is around 125 miles, depending on the vehicle size and battery size. This is ample for the average person's daily use.
Honda revealed this idea alongside the Urban EV Concept in Frankfurt; it’s a smart system that can store energy more efficiently, releasing electricity generated by renewable sources back into the home or selling it back to the grid. Electric cars tend to be cheap to run and attract tax advantages and government grants.
Looks wise the Honda e is sleek yet solid with excellent visibility. Access is easy via rear-hinged coach doors. The interior is almost like sitting in a lounge! The seating and driver display mimics your own sitting room!
