Mass production Honda e is official, will debut at the IAA 2019 in FrankfurtHonda has published the first official images of the mass production Honda e together with details on its design, specifications, connectivity and AI capabilities. The car will debut at the 2019 Frankfurt Motor Show accompanied by other Honda electrified and sporty automobiles.

Honda e design details

From previous teasers released by Honda, we already know that the Honda e design focus is on minimalism that reflects and complements the modern lifestyles of urban residents. The overall shape is clean with smooth styling contours. The vehicle features pop-out door handles and a Side Camera Mirror System that replaces conventional side-view mirrors with compact cameras, providing live images to two 6-inch screens inside the vehicle. The interior style is modern and relaxed. The cabin is adorned with a five-screen full-width digital dashboard and connected infotainment system. The largest part of it is occupied by dual 12.3-inch LCD touchscreens for infotainment. Thus both the driver and front-seat passenger can have access to data and media whenever needed.

Honda e technical specifications

The Honda e packs a 35.5 kWh battery that is good for a range of up to 220 km. For a car that's created especially for the urban commuter in Europe, that's more than satisfying. A 30 minute DC fast charging regains 80% of the battery's charge. In terms of power, the model has two variants - one with a 100 kW (136 ps) electric motor and another with a 113 kW (154 ps) motor, each with a torque of 315 Nm. Either way, the motor is placed on the rear axle. The car has a 0-100km/h acceleration of approximately 8 seconds.

Honda e connected services and artificial intelligence

Honda e's connected services and applications can be managed via the touchscreens and by voice using the Honda Personal Assistant service. Based on artificial intelligence (AI), it uses unique contextual understanding to create natural conversations and provide access to a range of online services. The assistant is activated by saying, "OK Honda". Backed by machine learning, it gets better and smarter every day following each use.

The My Honda+ smartphone application allows Honda e owners to stay connected with their own car even if they are away from it. The app has been updated with a wider range of functions, including easy navigation to a detailed vehicle condition report, remote climate control, and security and location monitoring, battery charge control, range monitor, etc. You can also lock and unlock the car using the app as the Honda e is also accessible with a digital key.

Customers can make a reservation for priority ordering online in UK, Germany, France and Norway, or register their interest in other European markets on Honda national websites. Source
