Honda e:N1 Production Begins in Thailand

Honda has started the production of the e:N1 all-electric crossover at its facility in Rojna Industrial Park, Prachinburi, Thailand. The vehicle was revealed earlier this year as e:Ny1 EV and is essentially a pure electric version of the new HR-V aka Vezel.

This also marks a significant milestone as Honda has become the first Japanese brand to start production of electric cars in Thailand. Built on Honda’s e:N Architecture F platform, the e:N1 gets a 68.8 kWh lithium-ion battery pack powering the system, which generates 201 hp (150 kW) and 310 Nm.

Honda claims that DC fast-charging can take from 10 to 80% SOC (state of charge) in 45 minutes, and the claimed range is 412 km in the WLTP cycle, which is much more than the recently discontinued Honda E. According to Honda, the e:N1 has a top speed of 160km/h, and requires 7.6 seconds to accelerate from 0-100km/h.

Honda aims to sell at least 2 million electric vehicles by 2030 and the e:N1 is an important model to accomplish this milestone. More pure EVs are in the pipeline, such as the twin e:NS1 and e:NP1 models. The Honda e:N1 will go on sale in Thailand in the first quarter of 2024 and will likely be exported to other regional markets.
