Honda’s electric car introduced in Type R versionSeptember 13, 2019
Unfortunately, we are not destined to ever see the “charged” version of the new Honda e citycar, but the artists imagined what it might look like.
The production version of the Honda E was finally unveiled at the Frankfurt Motor Show earlier this week. This is a cute little electric car for the city with a retro design and a minimalistic, chic interior. The current model has a power of 154 hp. – Although this is a decent figure for a rear-wheel drive hatchback that weighs about 1.4 tons, it definitely won’t provide true driving pleasure. Designer Avarvarii decided to fix this with a fictional sports version with the Type R index, an ideological successor to the City Turbo II from the past.
Let’s start with the good news. This model looks great – it is located slightly lower to the ground compared to a conventional car and has a suitable aerodynamic body kit, consisting of new side skirts, an additional “lip” of the front bumper and a stylish rear spoiler. Type R wheels and tires are branded with the name of the series.
And now for the bad news. Unfortunately, Honda does not intend to release such a car on the market, as the company will instead focus on creating more intelligent and technologically advanced versions of the model with zero emissions. “Honda E Type R is not what you need. For some segments, this may be the right choice, and Type R is a way to express the capabilities of Honda as a sports brand. But for Honda E, we want to provide our customers with a new dimension of values,” – said project manager Kokhei Hitomi.
