Japanese automaker, Honda, has reportedly announced plans to catch up to the present competition in the field of all-electric technology. The company intends on rolling out its “SUV e:concept” with future plans regarding the initiation of a mass production model for the Chinese market.
Sources state that the company’s EV production model is based on a design study that was reportedly presented by Honda at Auto China 2020. The study has apparently not clarified on any information regarding the battery or the powertrain of the vehicle, further raising more questions than it answers.
As per reports, Honda’s not-yet-named utility vehicle will be furnished with omnidirectional Advanced Driver Assistance System, in turn translating to all the driver-assistance systems that could be expected from a high technology EV. The company has also announced the launch its next-gen Honda Sensing, effectively promising on enhanced recognition, prediction, and decision-making performance.
An EV client prioritizes technology high up on the list and, therefore, the newcomer also features over-the-air updates and an AI assistant. Further, the EV is also speculated to have five displays, occupying the complete width of the dashboard, and possessing substantial advancements in autonomous driving technologies and electric powertrains.
The design of the concept car further unveils three doors, which is not likely to be found in a series-production specification, add reports. The revealed photographs are merely a preview of the upcoming things whose sole intent is to hype up prospective customers by attracting media attention.
Honda has, however, not published any photographs of the interior, cite sources adding that the design does not show side mirrors which is an implication that virtual mirrors, comprising two monitors and two video cameras, have been planned for the production model. The cockpit of the EV is most likely to seek inspiration from the Honda e hatchback, add additional sources.
