Honda’s Electric Car Interior

The Honda e Urban EV interior is comfortable, practical and stylish. It has a boutique feel that has been designed to feel like a living room.

The most eye-catching feature is the car’s full-length infotainment system which dominates the cockpit. It's built into the dashboard and finished with a wood-effect trim. Two 12.3-inch screens sit in the middle, giving access to the car’s range of apps and other functions.

The left screen controls the sat nav, vehicle settings and a ‘Personal Assistant’ feature. While the right portion houses DAB radio and detailed feedback on battery electric range and electrical recuperation. LED lights indicating the car's state of charge will be visible through a glass panel. Graphics also displaying information via screens inside the vehicle.

You can control your charging via the colour touchscreen on the dashboard. Or via the smartphone app on your phone from anywhere in the world. These let you start, stop and manage your charging at any time.

 


Rearview cameras replace conventional door mirrors. Amazingly this reduces aerodynamic drag by around 90%. Providing an overall efficiency boost across the entire vehicle by 3.8%, playing a significant role in maximising overall range.

As well as featuring cameras instead of rear-view mirrors. There are also flush door handles to further boost aerodynamic efficiency, while the charging port is mounted centrally in the bonnet. Drivers will be able to choose between the normal view and a wide view mode.

These modes increase visibility by 10% on normal mode and 50% in wide view mode when compared to normal mirrors. A special water-repellent coating will be used to stop water obscuring the driver's vision. All these innovative features along with comfort-focused seating. While making ample space for 4 adults, ensure a comfortable, rewarding driving experience that is hard to beat.
