Honda is looking to make a big splash in the electric vehicle (EV) segment in the Chinese market. The marque will be doing this by releasing production models based on the recently revealed e:N2 Concept car. The said concept was shown off at the China International Import Expo, and it is a follow-up to the Honda e:NS1 and e:NP1 EVs that are already available in other markets.

As for how this concept car looks, it looks like Honda was looking for a blend of sharp rough angles and soft smooth curves. The front is angular and aggressive with its pointed vertical light stacks, but the roofline is curved and sleek.
The side also gets noticeable character lines on its sides. It still gets some bits of plastic cladding, but the lowest portions of the car’s front and side are given a slatted trim piece. Also from the side, one can see that it has four doors.
Its rear then mirrors the front with a combo of vertical light elements on the side and a horizontal one spanning the width of the car. Likewise, a slatted piece also caps off its bottom portion.
The Honda e:N2 Concept EV
Like many Hondas including the e:N series of EVs, the eN2 concept sports a minimalist interior. This concept goes even further with a totally smooth dashboard and a hidden touchscreen. Even the gauge cluster is hidden from view until activated. The only thing that sticks out from the dashboard is a yoke-type steering wheel.
According to Honda, the touchscreen we mentioned earlier will be using a new version of the Honda Connect infotainment system that’s packaged with artificial intelligence (AI). Also present in the interior are hidden air-conditioning vents, and textured surfaces all throughout the cabin.
Taking minimalism to a whole new level
Honda also didn’t spare anything when it comes to safety. That’s because Honda has provided the e:N2 Concept EV and the eventual production version with the Honda Sensing 360 advanced driver assist safety suite (ADAS).
The said ADAS suite will be the latest version and it will also become the standard kit on Honda vehicles by 2030. This includes loads of cameras, and what the brand has dubbed the “Traveling Prophet.” As the name suggests, this system can warn drivers of obstacles in limited visibility situations.
On top of those features, this suite also can automatically slow down when taking on corners, and automatically change lanes on the highway. It wasn’t stated outright, but this system might leverage the abilities of the vehicle’s front camera, and its 360-degree radars.
This concept EV is brimming with sharp corners
But regarding its powertrain, nothing concrete was revealed by the car brand just yet. We do know though that this car will be sold exclusively in the Chinese market via GAC Honda and Dongfeng Honda.
