With the automotive industry looking to the future for power, Honda has
jumped into the mix. Honda is no stranger to the world of EVs and today they
are back with something new. Honda’s Electric “E Prototype” is a direct
successor of Honda’s 2017 Honda Urban EV concept, refined and now considered
road-legal. The vehicle features a simple, streamlined body that comes in
all white. Contrasting black inserts are found on the headlamps and rear
brake lights.

The car is host to illuminated badges, a multi-screen console, while a
digital cluster and pop-out door handles give off a futuristic approach. The
ride features the LiDAR system while adding a woodgrain trim found on the
dash and center console. Charging is easy and effortless thanks to a
charging port at the hood, incorporating an LED display that offers a look
at the battery’s percentage level.

The E Prototype is rumored to have a range of 125 miles with an 80% charge
time of just 30 minutes. Take a look at the new E Prototype from Honda in
the images below and give us your thoughts in the comments below. Head over

Honda e prototype to spawn family of small EVs
1 March 2019  James Attwood

Honda Sports EV Concept Tokyo motor show


Production version of Sports EV two-seater tipped for new electric car

The new electric car platform developed for the production version of the
Honda e prototype will be used for other small EVs in the future – which are
set to include a version of the Sports EV Concept.

The Sports EV Concept was shown at the 2017 Tokyo show, and previewed a
striking two-seat, rear-wheel-drive sports car with styling based closely on
the Urban EV Concept that previewed the e prototype. It was intended as a
vision of a flagship performance EV from the firm that would sit alongside
the Honda Civic Type R and NSX.

The production car that is developed from the e prototype will be built on a
new platform designed for A- and B-segment electric cars, and e prototype
project manager Kohei Hitomi confirmed it would be used as the basis for a
range of machines. It is likely that the firm would push to style those cars
in a similar retro manner to the e prototype to create an EV family,
although more traditionally styled cars are also likely.

Speaking about the platform, Hitomi said: “The fundamental technology is
there and our colleagues in the design department are thinking in many

Asked if the platform would suit a car like the Sports EV, he said: “It can
be any car. It can be a sporty car or a box-type car. Personally, I’d very
much welcome a sporty car on that platform.”
