Honda has had the world premiere of the Honda SUV e:concept at the 2020 Beijing International Automotive Exhibition (Auto China 2020).
The Honda SUV e:concept is a concept model indicating the direction of a future mass-production model of the Honda brand’s first electric vehicle (EV) to be introduced in China.
Honda says it “is striving to develop a mass-production EV model which will offer a value based on mobility experiences that remain fresh and fun for customers.” To achieve this, the new EV model will be equipped with omni-directional ADAS, the next-generation Honda Sensing safety and driver-assistive system with improved recognition, predication and decision-making performance, as well as the next-generation Honda Connect, which features an AI assistant interface, smartphone link and wireless updates made possible by advanced connectivity.
Omnidirectional ADAS is the next-generation and advanced form of Honda Sensing, with improved recognition, prediction and decision-making performance. This improvement was made possible by widening the front camera angle and adopting 360-degree radar, which enabled the system to detect vehicle peripheral environment more accurately. This system will be able to assist safe driving in more complex and diverse driving conditions on highways and surface roads.
