New 2023 Honda e:Ny1: UK pricing and specs revealed

The new all-electric Honda e:Ny1 SUV costs from £44,995 in the UK

Three years on from the Honda e’s launch in the UK, Honda is following up with its next all-electric model – the e:Ny1. The Japanese firm has now announced full UK specification, ahead of order books opening in late October. 

Pricing starts from £44,995 for the e:Ny1, making it more expensive than many of its rivals, including the new Hyundai Kona Electric, recently updated Peugeot e-2008 and the BYD Atto 3

The name is pronounced “e-en-why-one” (rather than “anyone”) and the complex badge will adorn a model with a relatively simple mission statement, because the e:Ny1 is clearly designed to pull customers of the conventional Civic hatchback and HR-V SUV, particularly younger families, into all-electric motoring. It has typical Honda design cues, albeit with a flush front grille that houses the centrally mounted charging port and a new EV-specific badge treatment that has the Honda logo in white.

The new model is based on a new all-electric platform that sits within the Honda range in parallel with the underpinnings of the HR-V, and it shares that car’s wheelbase, at 2,610mm. The overall length is 4,390mm, making the e:Ny1 a few centimetres longer overall than Peugeot’s e-2008. The boot capacity is 346 litres, around 10 per cent larger than the current HR-V’s load bay.

Under the skin, the e:Ny1 is front-wheel drive and has a single spec of motor, with 201bhp and 310Nm of torque. Honda says the usable battery capacity is 62kWh, and that the e:Ny1 can use this to travel up to 256 miles between recharges.

Charging speeds look relatively modest by modern standards, with a maximum DC rate of 78kW. Honda claims that’s enough to take the battery from 10 to 80 per cent of charge in 45 minutes, or to add 100km (62 miles) in 11 minutes. Subtle lighting, hidden beneath the leading edge of the bonnet, will sweep left to right to indicate charging, flash if there’s a charging fault and then ‘wink’ goodbye when the cable is removed.

The standard e:Ny1 is called Elegance and it comes with a 15.1-inch central touchscreen and a 10.25-inch digital driver’s display. An eight-way electrically adjustable driver’s seat, dual-zone air conditioning, a wireless smartphone charging pad, keyless entry and tinted windows are standard on the Elegance. 

The new infotainment system supports wireless Apple CarPlay and wired Android Auto, and users can also interact with the car through their smartphone, including scheduling charging and activating the climate control, via the My Honda+ app.

Step up to the Advance at £47,195 and there’s a choice between black or light grey synthetic leather seats, a panoramic sunroof, a heated leather steering wheel, an uprated sound system and a powered handsfree bootlid. 

Honda’s ‘SENSING’ safety system is also employed in the e:Ny1 as standard, with collision avoidance, blind spot warning, lane keep assist, traffic sign recognition and a reversing camera.

First deliveries of the new e:Ny1 are expected to reach customers by early 2024.
