Honda “e” Name Confirmed For New EV, Next Jazz To Feature Hybrid Power

Honda has revealed the name of the production version of its Urban EV concept; and it’ll be simply called the e.

The upcoming model will become the company’s first electric vehicle to ride on a dedicated EV platform. Previewed by the near-production e Prototype at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show, it will feature a five-door hatchback body and a rear-mounted electric motor driving the rear axle.

Honda hasn’t released any specs yet, apart from the promise for over 200km (124 miles) of driving range and the ability to fast charge at 80 percent in 30 minutes.

The e will also offer a lounge-like atmosphere in its cabin, featuring a walk-through flat floor and a massive dual-screen horizontal display along with digital rear-view side mirrors. The electric Honda has already attracted more than 22,000 expressions of interest across Europe, according to the car maker. Production will start later this year, with the first customer deliveries expected to commence in 2020.

In addition, the+company has announced that the next generation Jazz (also known as Fit to these shores) will be available with their latest hybrid i-MMD powertrain, featuring the same technologies as the current CR-V Hybrid.

Honda plans to have all of its models electrified by 2025, and the first step is to introduce its hybrid technology into the smaller-segment cars. The next-generation Honda Jazz/Fit will be revealed later this year at the Tokyo Motor Show.

      It’s a name easy to pronounce and, considering how the letter “E” is pronounced around the world, this very simple name doesn’t create problems around the globe like Pinto, LaCrosse, Pajero and Laputa.

    If only it had more range and was offered in the United States. I still want to see what the sports car variant will look like.

    Why create new model for electric only. Call it the Jazz available as hybrid or electric.

  • Kyle Newberry

    I just wish they would offer the Jazz Si or Type R. Throw a LSD, and the Si engine in it and bam! That would be amazing!
