“Our Urban EV Concept is the true representation of Honda’s ‘We make it simple’ design idea, which aims to make cars closer to people’s hearts.” Makoto Iwaki, Honda R&D Executive Creative Director.
The electric experience
Imagine driving a Honda electric car.
You’ll be comfortably insulated in a virtually soundless world. There are no gears, just the light touch of the accelerator pedal delivers seamlessly smooth power from a source that’s clean and efficient, with zero emissions. Welcome to a new age of driving a Honda.
Developing the idea
Bringing the concept to life.
The Urban EV will be Honda’s first mass-produced battery electric vehicle sold in Europe, but electric vehicles have been around for over 100 years in various shapes and forms. The idea isn’t new, but the technology is. Throughout creating the Urban EV Concept, our designers and engineers looked at new ways of expressing these ideas and found that simplicity was key. The number of moving parts is dramatically reduced; only a fraction of what you’ll find in a conventional vehicle. That means much greater energy efficiency and less maintenance.
The Honda R&D team won the Car Design Award 2018 for making a significant contribution to the evolution of car design with the Honda Urban EV Concept.
Leading the charge
It’s time to go all-electric.
Charging times for electric cars will depend on the size of the car and the battery. The typical charge time for pure-electric cars – using a standard home wall socket – is between six and eight hours. Most electric cars can also use rapid charging points that can top up the batteries to 80% capacity in around 30 minutes.
Electric vehicle range
Most new electric cars have a range of up to 100 miles and above - depending on battery size. Given that a large percentage of Europeans drive less than 63 miles every day – and the average UK driver travels just 25 miles – then even 100 miles on a single charge is ample for everyday driving.
Honda Power Manager Concept
This was an idea revealed alongside the Urban EV Concept in Frankfurt; it’s a smart system that can store energy more efficiently, releasing electricity generated by renewable sources back into the home or selling it back to the grid.
Advanced technology is an integral part of the attractive, minimalist design.
The stunning Honda Urban EV electric car, first shown at the Tokyo Motor Show, is no longer a concept; it’s becoming a reality. So why go electric? Well, electric cars are cheaper to run and will cost you less than a petrol or diesel car. There are also significant tax advantages and some healthy Government grants that you can benefit from too. All-in-all, going green will be saving a lot more than just the environment…it’ll be saving you money.
The best concept car
Selected for the renowned 2018 Car Design Awards, the Urban EV concept was described as bringing ‘a much-needed sense of personality to EV space’. Why not take a look for yourself?
Low and wide, the Honda Urban EV has a real sporty-looking appearance, while the front windscreen provides an even wider drivers view.
It’s an EV with compact proportions, giving the car a planted, muscular stance that hints at a sporty driving experience.
Leading the way
The Honda logo on the Urban EV concept is backlit in blue. It appears at the front and the rear – it will be a distinguishing feature on all our future electric cars.
An invitation to drive
Enter the world of electric transportation. Entry and exit from the Honda electric car is through the elegant, rear-hinged coach doors.
The Urban EV Concept, can spell out what it’s thinking with interactive messages displayed between the headlights and tail lights. They including greetings, charging status and even advice for other drivers on the road.
The unique, relaxing environment of the Honda Urban EV.
The interior of our electric vehicle is surprisingly spacious. Created with natural materials and wood finish accents, you’ll experience driving in a relaxed ambience, reminiscent of a lounge. It’s an experience that can only be described as unique. In every sense, the Honda electric car will change the way you drive forever.
The Urban EV concept is now live.
With the development of pure electric vehicles evolving, this page will often update. Please check back with us for updates and news on the progress of the Urban EV prototype.
