The owners can remotely stay connected with their vehicle with the help of new My Honda+ app. The exclusive My Honda+ app would not only allow you to access, lock/unlock your car but also provide you statistics regarding your car’s condition, location, security, and climate control. Moreover, the new 2021 Honda e will be equipped with an artificial intelligence system ‘Honda Personal Assistant Service’, thus creating a friendly and conversational ambiance for the passengers. It also accepts voice commands and you can activate it by just saying ‘Ok Honda’ and then by giving your desired instructions.
Battery/ Power Output
A high power generating electric motor is incorporated in the 2021 Honda e which offers two different power output options to its customers. The first one is a base variant with 100 kW output and the advance variant provides 113 kW output. Both the motors are powered by a 35.5 kWh battery. Honda has wisely chosen the right size of a battery to make the car more ecofriendly with less CO2 emission. With one time charge, it aims to cover a distance of 220 km, which is quite a good figure. It is also equipped with a fast-charging feature, so within half an hour, eighty percent of the capacity can be charged. With such power generating motor and battery the new Honda e in just 8 seconds can accelerate from 0-100km/h.
