Key exhibition items on display
Honda SUV e:concept
Honda SUV e:concept is a concept model which indicates the direction of a future mass-production model of the Honda brand?s first EV to be introduced in China.
Honda is striving to develop a mass-production EV model which will offer a value based on mobility experiences that remain fresh and FUN for customers. To this end, the new EV model will be equipped with omnidirectional ADAS, the next-generation Honda SENSING safety and driver-assistive system with improved recognition, predication and decision-making performance, as well as the next-generation Honda CONNECT, which features an AI assistant interface, smartphone link and wireless updates made possible by advanced connectivity.
CR-V PHEV will become the first Honda vehicle in China equipped with a plug-in hybrid system. This model is scheduled to go on sale in January 2021.
The plug-in hybrid system for this model was developed based on Honda?s original 2-motor hybrid system, SPORT HYBRID i-MMD, with further improved efficiency of the battery and converter system. This system realizes the "most EV-like feel" in virtually all areas for everyday driving, including driving performance, responsiveness, and quietness.
Omnidirectional ADAS is the next-generation and advanced form of Honda SENSING, with improved recognition, prediction, and decision-making performance. This improvement was made possible by widening the front camera angle and adopting a 360-degree radar, which enabled the system to detect the vehicle peripheral environment more accurately. This system will be able to assist safe driving in more complex and diverse driving conditions on highways and surface roads.
Honda is striving for the early realization of a collision-free society based on its approach of providing "Safety for Everyone" sharing the road, which seeks to help realize a society where everyone can stay safe and avoid getting involved in a traffic accident. As a step forward to this goal, Honda is planning to begin demonstration testing of its omnidirectional ADAS in China before the end of this year.
