The e:Ny1 marks Honda’s second fully electric vehicle (EV) in this part of the world, writes Tim Barnes-Clay.

The cutting-edge model not only marries a fresh design approach with top-tier interior quality but also showcases advanced technology, making it a compelling and contemporary choice for families who value innovation.

Developed to deliver new values, sensations, and experiences for existing and new EV owners, the e:Ny1 remains true to Honda‘s human-centred development philosophy. Emphasising the brand’s fun-to-drive dynamics, a smooth and refined ride, and versatile functionality, Honda’s engineering team has successfully harnessed the advantages of a fully electric powertrain.

Under the bonnet, the e:Ny1 utilises Honda’s newly developed front-motor-driven platform. With the latest battery management technology, the e:Ny1 boasts an impressive range of up to 256 miles and fast charging that takes approximately 45 minutes to reach 80 per cent capacity.

The e: Ny1’s distinctive character is defined by its sleek, flowing design concept. The integrated headlights and bold face, with a clever rotating grille panel that provides access to the car’s charging port behind, make a unique statement.

The attention to detail extends to the full-width LED light bar across the tailgate and a range of standout paint options, including the striking Aqua Topaz colour. Furthermore, this model presents a new EV identity, symbolised by the white ‘H’ badge at the front, signifying Honda’s dedication to electrification, and a new typeface for the brand name at the rear.

Emphasising its commitment to driver and passenger comfort, the e:Ny1 features clever packaging of the electric drivetrain elements, including the placement of the battery under the floor. This design contributes to a spacious, luxurious interior adorned with high-quality cabin materials and comfortable seating. The digital instrument panel and sizeable central touchscreen headline comprehensive technology features, keeping you and your passengers connected and informed.

With safety as a top priority, the e:Ny1 comes equipped with the Honda SENSING suite of technologies as standard. The kit includes advanced driver-assist systems, showcasing Honda’s dedication to all-round collision performance and reducing driver burden, providing peace of mind for everyone on board.
