Honda’s electric crossover leaked in patent images

Honda’s electric crossover leaked in patent images

- Honda’s first electric crossover will be based on the HR-V, reveals the leaked images. 

- Will be first sold in China before making its way to international markets.

- The electric crossover will be based on the Everus EV concept showcased at the 2018 Beijing Auto Show.

Honda doesn’t want to be left behind in the industry-wide electrification push. The Japanese carmaker does have a plethora of plug-in hybrid variants in its line-up, but no pure electric. So Honda is ready to jump on the bandwagon of electric crossovers as is the industry trend these days. And its first electric product has been leaked online in patent images. 

Honda’s electric crossover will be based on the Everus EV concept showcased at the 2018 Beijing Auto Show. It appears to be the same size as the HR-V and will be produced by GAC-Honda in China. The patent images show that the production-ready model retains most of its elements from the concept. The upper grille has been retained, while the lower grille gets production-spec horizontal louvres. The headlamps are also seen with conventional lighting signature and some blue-hued elements. The electric charging port is supposedly located behind the upper grille.

The rear has the same tail light aesthetics as seen on the concept car. The rear bumper gets cladded protection sans the exhaust pipes, since this is a pure EV, while there is a small roof-mounted spoiler as well. There are no cabin or powertrain details available at the moment. Developed by GAC-Honda, the electric crossover will be sold through the Everus brand. 

The electric powertrain, which will debut in this crossover, will eventually make its way to other Honda products. All the plug-in hybrid variants will be joined by pure electric vehicles by the turn of the decade. The electric crossover will also be sold in international markets following its sales in China which will commence in 2019.
