The electric car differs from the HR-V hybrid by the absence of a grill (a charging port is built into the nose) and a gas tank flap on the left side.

Honda held the world premiere of its concept SUV e: prototype at Auto Shanghai, calling it "Honda's emblematic first electric vehicle in China." The production model will go on sale in spring 2022 and will be equipped with third-generation Honda Connect media system with over-the-air updates, smartphone integration and voice recognition. There is no other official information, but we remember that the prototype of the Honda SUV e: concept, shown in Beijing, has already turned into the "third" Honda HR-V.

#The X-NV and VE-1 are under the Chinese brands, although those are based on the Honda XR-V / HR-V. For some reason, the Honda e hatchback is not available to the Chinese.

#The Honda Breeze (CR-V clone) from GAC Honda arrives in Shanghai as a plug-in Sport Hybrid e + with a twin-engine i-MMD setup. Power - 213 hp, fuel consumption - 1.3 l / 100 km, electric cruising range - 85 km (NEDC). Sales will start in the second half of the year.

Electric cars made from the "second" HR-V, develop 120 kW (163 hp, 280 N • m), and batteries with a capacity of 53.6 and 61.3 kW • h promise a range of 401-470 km (NEDC). Prices start at 159,800-169,800 yuan (1.86-1.98 million rubles). Demand is vanishingly small: X-NV found only 6,579 buyers in 2020, and VE-1 is almost three times less. However, the "third" HR-V EV will be a global model, which, for example, is very much awaited by the Japanese under the name Vezel.
