Honda’s e:NS1 And e:NP1 Are The First Of 10 EVs Launching In China
While much of the Western World eagerly awaits the launch of Honda’s first of two EVs based on GM’s Ultium platform, the Japanese car manufacturer has quietly introduced its first electric vehicle in China through the Dongfeng Honda joint venture.
The EV has been launched in two flavors, dubbed the e:NS1 and e:NP1 respectively. While neither model has been fully detailed by Honda, we know they are equipped with a battery pack offering up to 510 km (317 miles) of range on the Chinese testing cycle. Honda first unveiled the two models back in October 2021.
The design of the e:NS1 and e:NP1 is very similar to the new-age Honda HR-V which itself has a design inspired by the Honda Prologue Concept. As such, the front end includes striking headlights with incorporated LED daytime running lights and additional DRLs located near the base of the bumper. The EVs also feature a blacked-out front grille while the e:NS1 pictured also has gloss black wheel arches.
