Su precio aún es un secreto guardado bajo llave.

Con una serie de imágenes de intriga y un concepto cercano a producción en el Festival de Velocidad de Goodwood, Honda ya había mostrado qué se traía entre manos con el Honda E. La espera terminó definitivamente hoy, ya que la firma japonesa develó su nuevo carro eléctrico. Y quienes viven en Europa ya lo pueden comprar.

El E es un jugador clave en los planes de Honda hacia la electrificación de su todo su línea línea, y alcanzar un 100% de ventas vehículos electrificados en 2025. El carro no varió mucho en la transición de un concepto hasta su versión de producción. Nos complace que que las cámaras laterales del prototipo que actúan como espejos laterales se han mantenido, proporcionando imágenes en vivo a dos pantallas de seis pulgadas dentro del habitáculo. Algo que Honda viene haciendo desde hace años, aunque complementando el espejo regular.

PLas buenas noticias no son pocas. Con un perfecto balance de peso de 50:50 y tracción trasera, el Honda E tiene características que lo deberían ubicar como un carro de excelente excelente conducción por la ciudad. El motor eléctrico está ubicado en el eje trasero, proporciona dos salidas de potenciañ; 136 y 154 caballos de fuerza, amboas con un torque máximo de 232 libras-pie. Esa es suficiente potencia para una aceleración de 0 a 62 millas por hora en alrededor de ocho segundos.

Pero lo que probablemente sea más importante para un carro urbano de cero emisiones es que el E de cuatro puertas puede viajar hasta 137 millas con una sola carga en su batería de 35.5 kWh. Una función de carga rápida permite que un 80 por ciento de ella se recargue en solo 30 minutos, lo que alcanza para recorrer aproximadamente 110 millas.

En términos de conectividad, el Honda E ofrece una interfaz inteligente con una pantalla táctil dual de 12.3 pulgadas. Lo más destacado del sistema es la aplicación Honda Personal Assistant, que utiliza "una comprensión contextual única para crear conversaciones naturales y proporcionar acceso a una gama de servicios en línea". Simplemente debes decir "OK Honda" e indicarle al carro tu pregunta o instrucción.

Honda ya está tomando reservas para pedidos prioritarios en línea en el Reino Unido, Alemania, Francia y Noruega. Los precios y detalles de entrega no están disponibles en este momento. Si vas al Auto Show de Fráncfort la próxima semana podrás verlo con tus propios ojos.

Honda e design details

Developed with a focus on simplicity in design and usability, the Honda e will meet the needs of modern urban lifestyles through seamlessly integrated connected technologies and exceptional driving dynamics.

Clean external lines are accentuated by the Side Camera Mirror System that replaces conventional side view mirrors with compact cameras, providing live images to two six-inch screens inside the vehicle. The camera technology, a first in the compact segment, brings significant benefits for styling, safety, aerodynamics and refinement.

The car is distinguished in profile by its smooth styling contours, enhanced by pop-out door handles that provide a seamless look. Inside, a next-generation five screen full-width digital dashboard and connected infotainment system are incorporated within a relaxing and modern passenger cabin that uses subtle, contemporary materials.

The largest area of the Honda e’s full-width digital dashboard is occupied by dual 12.3-inch LCD touchscreens. These act as the primary infotainment displays, presenting a range of applications and connected infotainment services that help the car to seamlessly integrate with the owner’s modern urban lifestyle. As a result, the driver and passengers – whether the car is driving, parked or charging – can enjoy the same connectivity and comfort.

Honda e connected services and artificial intelligence

Connected services and applications accessed via the touchscreen interface can also be activated using voice commands to engage with the Honda Personal Assistant service. The intuitive Honda Personal Assistant is a smart artificial intelligence (AI) facility that uses unique contextual understanding to create natural conversations and provide access to a range of online services.

The unique Honda Personal Assistant is activated by saying, “OK Honda”, followed by the question or instruction. Machine learning enables the technology to develop a greater understanding of an individuals’ voice over time, in order to deliver more accurate responses.

Away from the car, Honda e owners can enjoy the peace-of-mind of being able to stay connected to their vehicle remotely through the My Honda+ smartphone application.

The mobile service, originally launched in 2017, has been updated to deliver a wider range of functionality, including easy navigation to a detailed vehicle condition report, remote climate control, and security and location monitoring. Additional EV-specific functions include battery charge control and range monitor, while charging station and navigation search results can be sent to the car from a mobile device.

The Honda e is also accessible using a digital key, allowing the car to be locked and unlocked using only the smartphone application.
