soon a production electric sports car?

To make the development of the Honda e platform profitable, the manufacturer would prepare a production version of the Sports EV concept.

What if Honda prepared a small electric sports car? This is advanced by the Japanese media Car Sensor, according to which Honda was working on a production version of the Sports EV Concept, presented in 2017. With its retro lines which inspired the city car Honda e, the small electric coupe would resume the platform of the latter. With compact dimensions, it would be a kind of rival to the Mazda MX-5 or Toyota GR 86, but in electric. On the Honda e, the engines range from 136 hp to 153 hp: sufficient for a small sporty coupe, as long as the weight is under control.

As a replacement for the Honda S660

Also according to Car Sensor, Honda plans to end production of the S660, a pocket sports car to which we are not entitled in Europe. The latter is a Kei Car, that is to say that it meets Japanese compactness criteria, with an engine of 660 cm3 for 64 hp. The Sports EV would take the place of the S660. Compact, will accommodate only two occupants. According to our colleagues, the first prototypes are already in circulation, with production scheduled for 2022.

Why this little sportswoman? To streamline the expensive development of the Honda e. The premium city car remains for the moment the only one to use the platform specially created for the occasion. And since the latter is a propulsion, it could be perfect for a pocket sports car.

But, if this future electric coupe were to be marketed in Europe, be careful not to copy the two faults of the Honda e: the autonomy at half mast (we measured it at 152 km on average), and the high price ( almost € 39,000 in Advance finish).
