Our emissionless Hero

This compact and innovative electric car without emissions is a modern version of the original Honda Civic and from the beginning of 2019 the order books are opened, before the scheduled launch start 2020

Pure-Electric

Fully Electric

"Our Urban EV Concept is the faithful image of Honda's design motto ' We make it simple ', aiming to design cars that better meet people's needs." Makoto Iwaki, Honda R&D Executive Creative Director.

The Electrical Experience

Imagine that you are driving in an electric car from Honda.

You are comfortably nestled in a virtually silent world. There are no gears, only the light touch of a throttle that delivers uninterrupted power from a source that is clean and efficient, without emissions. Welcome to the new generation of Honda.

Developing the idea

Bring the concept to life.

The Urban EV is the first massively produced Honda electric car sold in Europe, but has been driving electric vehicles in all sorts and sizes for over 100 years. The idea is not new, but the technology does. While designing the Urban EV Concept, our designers and engineers have looked at new ways of realising these ideas, and they have learned that simplicity is the essence. The number of moving parts has been significantly reduced; Only a fraction of what you find in a conventional vehicle. That means much more energy efficiency and less maintenance.

Charging the boss are

It's time to become fully electric.

Charging times for electric cars depend on the size of the car and the type of battery. The average charge time for fully electric cars – via a standard plug – is between six and eight hours. Most electric cars can also use charging points for super-fast charging, which allows the batteries to be refilled up to a capacity of 80% in approximately 30 minutes.

Electric car Scope

Most new electric cars have an action radius of 160 kilometers or higher-depending on battery capacity. In view of the fact that a large percentage of Europeans drive less than 100 kilometers per day – and the average driver only travels 40 kilometers – even 160 kilometers with one charge is sufficient for everyday driving.

Honda Power Manager Concept

This idea was unveiled alongside the Urban EV Concept in Frankfurt; A smart system that can store energy in a more efficient way, with the electricity generated by renewable sources being delivered within your home or returned to the grid.

Save Energy

Advanced technology is an integral part of the attractive, minimalist design.

The breathtaking Honda Urban EV electric car, which had its debut at the Tokyo Motor Show, is no longer a concept; It becomes a reality. Why Choose Electric? Electric cars are more economical to drive in, and cost less than a gasoline or diesel car. Electric cars also entail a considerable tax advantage, plus a number of interesting government subsidies that you can benefit from. All in all, you save with green driving much more than just the environment... You save a lot of money.
