On June 13, Honda Motor Europe informed that its new compact electric vehicle, the Honda e, is the first Honda to be built on a dedicated EV platform, designed from the ground up to deliver excellent Honda driving dynamics.
The Honda e battery is positioned at a low level under the floor, and centrally within the wheelbase of the car, affording a 50:50 weight distribution and low centre of gravity for optimal handling and stability. Power from the high-torque electric motor is delivered through the rear wheels, enabling steering precision even at high acceleration.
The four-wheel independent suspension is engineered to offer outstanding stability in all conditions, a smooth ride and responsive handling. Elements of the suspension components are forged aluminium to reduce weight and benefit performance and efficiency.
The reliable 35.5 kWh Lithium-ion high-capacity battery, can be charged using either Type 2 AC connection or a CCS2 DC rapid charger.
Combined with a full range of over 200Km, the fast-charge capability of the advanced powertrain will deliver exceptional usability to meet the demands of everyday commuting providing 80% charge in 30 minutes.
Honda’s new compact electric car is a key part of the brand’s latest electrification commitment to feature electrified technology in 100% of its European sales by 2025. Presented in prototype form at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show, the first Honda production battery electric vehicle for the European market will make its mass production debut later this year.

On June 11, Alibaba A.I. Labs, an AI research division of Alibaba Group, announced at CES Asia partnerships with auto brands, including Audi, Renault and Honda to drive a smart mobility initiative in China.
The automakers plan to integrate Tmall Genie Auto, a voice-controlled product from Alibaba A.I. Labs, into select models of internet cars they sell in the world’s second-largest economy.
The new smart assistant for cars will allow owners of select models to request recommendations for nearby places to eat, buy movie tickets, order food for delivery, even make purchases on Alibaba’s Taobao and Tmall e-commerce platforms – without taking their eyes off the road.
Tmall Genie Auto initially allowed consumers to check on their cars from home, such as ensuring that all windows were closed and doors were locked. Later, the Labs added car-to-home services, such as monitoring and controlling Tmall Genie-compatible smart appliances, such as lights, air conditioners and heaters, from their vehicles.
At CES, Alibaba’s B2C marketplace, Tmall ,also announced a tie-up with Renault on an electric car that features the Tmall iconic cat logo on the vehicle’s exterior design. The Renault City K-ZE Tmall Genie Edition, which will include Tmall Genie Auto, will be on sale in China later this year.
