The success of the new Honda e:Ny1 electric SUV being launched next year will be critical to the firm hitting the government's upcoming zero-emissions targets.

The e:Ny1 - named as such during a global presentation by the manufacturer but expected to take a different name when it goes into production - is the company's first mainstream electric car, following on from the niche, Europe-only Honda E. It is similar in size to the Honda HR-V but sits on a bespoke electric platform.

Talking about its launch in 2023, Honda's head of cars in the UK, Rebecca Adamson, said: "It is our first mainstream EV offering. The Honda E has been a great showpiece, but this car will take our BEV ambitions to a new level. It will offer more range and a more usable set-up, and it is critical for us to hit our targets."
