Honda re­veals specs for its EV

Auto Today - - Update!/Internatio­nal News -

AF­TER ITS global pre­miere, Honda has re­vealed the tech­ni­cal spec­i­fi­ca­tions of its first com­pact elec­tric ve­hi­cle, the Honda e. The Honda e is the first Honda to be built on a ded­i­cated EV plat­form. The bat­tery is po­si­tioned at a low level un­der the floor, and cen­trally within the wheel­base of the car, af­ford­ing a 50:50 weight dis­tri­bu­tion and low cen­tre of gravity. Honda has in­stalled 35.5 kWh Li-ion bat­tery, which can be charged us­ing ei­ther Type 2 AC con­nec­tion or a CCS2 DC rapid charger. Com­bined with a full range of over 200Km, the fast-charge ca­pa­bil­ity will pro­vide 80 per cent charge within 30 min­utes. More­over, the bat­tery pack is wa­ter-cooled so as to main­tain an op­ti­mum tem­per­a­ture for the EV, thus max­imis­ing its ef­fi­ciency. Honda’s new com­pact elec­tric car is a key part of the brand’s lat­est elec­tri­fi­ca­tion com­mit­ment to fea­ture elec­tri­fied tech­nol­ogy in 100 per cent of its Euro­pean sales by 2025.
