The Honda e celebrates its debut as a production version later this year. He is the first vehicle built by the company on the Honda platform for electric vehicles, which was newly developed. According to the company strategy, all new vehicles offered in Europe should be electrified by the year 2025.
An essential role in the platform plays the arrangement of the battery: Since it was placed centrally between the axles in the underbody, it should contribute to a low center of gravity and a balanced weight distribution of 50:50 between the front and rear axle. The lithium-ion battery offers 35.5 kWh capacity.
It can be charged via type 2 AC connection or via CCS2 DC connection. The range is more than 200 kilometers. The battery can be charged according to Honda in only 30 minutes to 80 percent. The charging port is integrated into the front hood and easily accessible from both sides of the vehicle.
In addition: The electric motor drives the rear wheels, which is to ensure that the steering remains free of drive influences even with emphatic acceleration. And: The independent suspension on all four wheels to ensure ride comfort.
