The world premiere of the Honda e happened at The Frankfurt Motorshow today. This is the final version of the new EV.
This vehicle by the Japanese automaker found its final version that will come to the market at the starting price of $33,000.
Previously shown prototypes were not so different from the actual vehicle, so it is expected that its specs will also behave the same way. Specs include a 35.5 kWh lithium-ion battery, a charge rate of 80% in half an hour, and 125 miles of range.
Here is what the vehicle will look like:
Also, Honda presented two new products that are related to the charging of the car. There is now a new power charger with two different maximum outputs: A 7.4kWh on a single-phase power supply, and 22kWh on a three-phase power supply.
The second new feature is the Honda Power Manager. Here is how the carmaker described it:
“Honda Power Manager Prototype previews a bidirectional system that connects electric vehicles to a smart power grid. This “vehicle-to-grid” technology enables the collection and distribution of electricity between EVs and the grid to intelligently balance demand and supply of energy and make better use of renewable sources.”
Deliveries of the vehicle will start in the summer of 2020.
