The Honda e:Ny1 - the all-electric SUV from Honda combines comfort, performance and technology
Honda has revealed its second fully electric vehicle, the e:Ny1, following the widely acclaimed Honda e.
The e:Ny1 follows Honda's human-centred development philosophy, making the most of the model's fully electric powertrain to deliver an SUV with fun-to-drive dynamics, a smooth and refined ride, and intuitive versatility.
The e:Ny1 features a bold and sophisticated exterior with a short front overhang, large wheels and a wide track. The e:Ny1 also débuts an all-new electric identity for Honda, with white 'H' badges for the nose badge, wheel centre caps and steering wheel, and a new typeface spells out 'Honda' on the tailgate.
Clever packaging of the electric drivetrain components ensure e:Ny1 offers remarkable interior space and comfort. An all-new centre console features a simple layout of easily accessible buttons, multiple storage options and wireless charging, while an uncluttered dashboard topped by a large 15.1-inch touchscreen provides access to a comprehensive suite of infotainment and driving options.
The e:Ny1 is built on Honda's newly-developed e:N Architecture F, a front-motor-driven platform focused on three fundamental attributes to ensure the SUV delivers a fun and confidence-inspiring drive:
- A dedicated high rigidity body structure
- A low centre of gravity
- Carefully designed under-floor aerodynamics
The e:Ny1 incorporates a high-performance, lightweight three-in-one integrated power drive unit, electric motor and gearbox. This generates a maximum output of 150 kW, 310 Nm of torque and is engineered to provide smooth and comfortable acceleration and deceleration. Under the floor sits a high-capacity lithium-ion battery that delivers up to 412 km (WLTP) of range and DC fast-charging capability that can go from 10 to 80% in just 45 minutes.
An all-new chassis developed specifically for battery electric vehicles has ensured improved torsional rigidity - key to this is high-tensile steel, used across 47% of the e:Ny1's body (by weight). Alongside the new platform and powertrain, these combine to offer the dynamic performance, exceptional comfort and refinement drivers will expect from Honda's latest EV.
