Honda introduced the e:Ny1 as its second full-electric vehicle in the spring of 2023, and even though the car was based on the already-known HR-V, it was different in many aspects.
When the Japanese automaker introduced the e in 2020, it wasn't what its customers really wanted. While it was a vehicle packed with technology and able to run on electrons alone, its range was very small. Furthermore, it was quite expensive. But that was Honda's first baby steps into the EV segment. With the 2023 e:Ny1, things dramatically evolved.
On the outside, the car's shape looked very familiar to many Honda owners since it shared most of its body panels with the HR-V crossover. At the front, though, the automaker removed the main grille since there wasn't any ICE to cool. It featured a panel instead, which concealed the vehicle's charging port. From its profile, the e:Ny1 featured the same raked-forward tailgate at the back and a clean design with curved panels and enough windows.
While the exterior was a reminiscence of the HR-V, the interior was miles away. Fronting the driver was an LCD that showed the instrument panels. In addition, Honda placed a second, portrait-mode, 15.1” touchscreen that was divided into three areas. The one on the bottom was reserved for the HVAC unit, and it boasted touch areas. Since the e:Ny1 was based on the HR-V, Honda installed a similar-looking dashboard,] but with a different layout. All five seats in the cabin were comfortable for longer or shorter rides.
Under the e:Ny1's skin Honda installed a 150 kW (204 hp) motor paired to a single-speed transmission that sent the electric motor torque to the front wheels only.
