Electric Honda E Details Its Full-Width Digital Dashboard

As the debut of the final production version of the electric Honda E approaches, the Japanese car maker decided to shed more light into its high-tech cabin.

Honda’s first production EV will feature an impressive “full-width digital dashboard”, which is comprised by five neatly integrated HD displays across the width of the cabin.

In front of the driver there’s an 8.8-inch digital instrument cluster with all the key information you want, including power and charge status, drive mode selected and safety feature details.

The largest area of the digital dashboard is occupied by the dual 12.3-inch touchscreen displays, with the system offering a range of apps and services via a sophisticated smartphone-style interface that’s also customizable. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto is of course included as standard.

The dual-screen system allows not only for two applications to be displayed side-by-side but also allows content to be swapped across them. For example, the passenger can swipe the navigation instructions to the driver’s side, leaving the right display available for a music playlist.

The infotainment system also features Honda’s new Personal Assistant, an AI-powered voice command system that can respond to natural questions and instructions. Thanks to its integrated machine learning feature, the Honda Personal Assistant can develop a greater understanding of an individual’s voice over time in order to deliver more accurate responses.

The outer two displays are used by the Side Camera Mirror system, giving a natural feel and vision for the driver, while there’s also the Center Camera Mirror system that’s driven by a central rear-facing camera for a further enhanced field of vision.

Through a dedicated smartphone application, drivers can remain connected to the Honda E, offering them the ability to control functions such as climate control, security and location monitoring, battery charge and a driving range monitor, among other. The app will also offer a digital key function as well.

Honda’s new E compact electric model will make its debut at the Frankfurt Motor Show in its final production guise. Power comes from a 147hp electric motor and a 35.5kWh battery pack, offering a driving range of “over 124 miles (200km)”.

    Oh great, more screens to jack up the price and use more energy.

    • Tyler McCulloch

      Oh yes, because those screens use SO much energy /s

      • Knotmyrealname

        They use a lot more energy than only one screen.

      HAHA. Would someone please think of the ENERGY!!! There are starving people all over the world that desperately need more energy. Instead of helping them, Honda has decided that it owns all of the energy and it will be used to power these incredibly wasteful, electricity-sucking screens.

      It is obvious that Honda doesn’t even care about “global warming” or “climate change”. Like all evil, capitalism loving corporations, Honda thinks it owns all of the energy. I just hope they listen to brilliant minds like Alexandria Acasio Cortez so that my childrens children are able to see living polar bears and not just videos of polar bears on a multitude of energy sucking screens. Oh the humanity.

  • This IS the future! More people should buy a car like this and ba n the petrol/diesel cars by now… I don’t understand why some f()kers still drive gas powered cars? I say it! If you still drive a petrol/diesel or even Hybrid, you’re trying to murder us… No joke, I really mean it!

    • Miguel Candelario

      Yeah, thank you for setting your bar for the rest of the world. Nice cap!

    • ace_9

      I’m glad you really mean what you said, because I don’t mind murdering you and others like you at all 🙂 So, you know, it’s good we are on the same page.

      This is a pretty solid parody account. The profile picture perfectly represents the type of big city dwelling, non-car owning, 143lb soy-infused individual that actually thinks like this.

    I like it. Range is sufficient for urban+ use. Don’t need the movie theater. EV market is progressing, doubled in 2021 in Europe.

    It looks like the “Home” button in that top row of buttons is broken in the “new” shots of the interior compared to the original press photos…

  • Matteo Tommasi

    Inside is even uglier than outside

  • salamOOn

    overkill, it will be much more nicer with single display in front of steering wheel.

  • Thunderbolt

    don’t like EV, but love that dashboard

    • Big Black Duck

      Interior has a very 70’s to 80’s styling I might say

  • Stephen G

    The dashboard is awful…I don’t need to be looking at a picture of the cars exterior while I’m driving it. The side view cameras are long overdue

  • I’m trying very hard to find something I don’t like about this car,

    Failing miserably so far https://media0.giphy.com/media/1AgDOgXEBkhBOr9cTD/giphy.gif

      How about the absurdly industrial-looking dashboard that has absolutely none of the ‘fun’ design of the exterior? It’s like the teams that designed the interior thought it was going into a minivan.

    • Can you please deletet the meme with Alex Jones? I don’t like the look of neonazis…

      • Knotmyrealname

        Don’t be neonazi-ist.
        I take offence at your discrimination and vilification of neonazis

  • Enter Ranting

    Start the presses, Honda is gonna print money with this, and every other major carmaker will be falling all over themselves to copy it.

  • Matt

    The design of this Honda has been over-hyped. Sure from some angles it looks ‘cute’, but it’s overall shape isn’t as balanced as say the Zoe and it’s a bit awkward from other angles. That interior though, I’ve never seen a car thats interior has so little design connection to the exterior. It’s just really odd.

    Even back in the 80’s it was forecast that digital displays would be the norm, and analogue displays would be kept for the premium sector.
