Honda has showcased the SUV e:prototype at the ongoing 2021 Shanghai Auto Show. The HR-V-inspired electric SUV will be the brand’s first mass-produced electric vehicle for China, expected to launch between March-June, 2022. Besides this, the carmaker also plans to launch nine more EVs exclusively for China.

The SUV e:prototype looks like an electrified version of the new-generation HR-V. Its shoulder lines and silhouette are identical to the SUV’s, but there are exclusive design elements too. On the outside, you see sharp eye-shaped LED headlamps, slim side mirrors, an LED-illuminated logo that houses the charging port, retractable door handles, wide LED tail lamps, and a sleek tail spoiler. 

Also, it packs the third-gen Honda Connect platform for smartphone connectivity and OTA (Over-the-air) updates with voice recognition. With the connected car technology, you can operate smart home appliances and shop online while driving. All upcoming Honda models in China are expected to get Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS). 

The carmaker has yet to disclose the range and battery specifications of its electric SUV.
