Honda today unveiled its next electrified model for Europe, with the eNy1 Prototype.

Coming to market in 2023, the e:Ny1 electric vehicle (EV) will be at the centre of Honda’s future product line up. Offering the unique blend of dynamics, technology and design that Honda is known for, the compact SUV will provide a great option for families looking for their first EV.

“The completion of our electrification goal marks a significant moment for Honda in Europe,” says Tom Gardner, Senior Vice President, Honda Motor Europe. “However, we’re not resting on our laurels. We are already well advanced with our plans to further expand the choice of battery-electric and hybrid vehicles for our customers and increase our offering in the fast-growing B- and C-SUV segments. The new models we will introduce in 2023 set the course for the next generation of electrified Honda cars, all retaining the engaging driving dynamics, comfort and exceptional usability to which our customers have become accustomed.”

For the next stage in its electrification journey, Honda is using a multi pathway strategy to realise its commitment to carbon neutrality across all Honda products and corporate activities by 2050. The company will heavily invest in a range of zero emission technologies including solid-state batteries, swappable battery systems, carbon neutral fuels and hydrogen cells.

A core part of this strategy will see all major markets, including the European region, increase the proportion of EV and fuel cell vehicle (FCV) unit sales ratio to 40% by 2030, and to 80% by 2035. The company will also end the sale of internal combustion engine automobiles globally by 2040.

No technical specs have been revealed for the e:Ny1 Concept but it may be related to the e:NS1 and e:NP1 concepts from China, which feature a 68.8 kWh battery that has a claimed range of up to 311 miles (500 km), according to local testing.
