HONDA'S new e:Ny1 compact all-electric SUV will start from £44,995 when order books open late in October.

In the UK the e:Ny1s will come with a complimentary five year care package, which includes servicing, a full guarantee and UK and European roadside assistance.

The car features a 15.1-inch central touchscreen and a 10.25-inch digital instrument display that combine to offer driving and infotainment features, including the presentation of advanced EV information which includes energy use and charging status, alongside Android Auto and wireless Apple Car Play.

Two trims will be available - Elegance and Advance - with Elegance versions coming with an eight-way electrically adjustable driver's seat finished in synthetic leather, heating functionality for both front passengers, auto dimming mirrors, dual zone air conditioning, a wireless charging pad and multiple USB ports, smart entry and push button start as well as power heated mirrors, sequential indicators, and privacy glass.

Advance grade is priced from £47,195 and introduces further convenience and premium features including premium synthetic leather seats, a panoramic sunroof, heated leather steering wheel, and premium audio system as well as a handsfree power tailgate.

Advance grade also features Honda's Parking Pilot system, which is supported by a multi-view camera system as well as additional side sensors. When engaged, the system identifies a suitable space and controls the steering, brakes, accelerator, and gear shifting. It covers six variations of parking scenarios, including bay, parallel and diagonal parking.

Honda's full suite of SENSING active safety technology is fitted as standard across the e:Ny1 range. Driver aids include collision mitigation braking, blind spot information, road departure mitigation, lane keep assist and traffic sign recognition, plus front and rear parking sensors and a reversing camera.

Rebecca Adamson, head of automobile at Honda UK said: "With the backdrop of 75 years of Honda engineering excellence and integrity, the all-new e:Ny1 delivers the performance, comfort and usability that Honda customers have come to expect, with the uniqueness of the EV powertrain.

"As Honda's second fully electric vehicle, it has an important role in the brand's electrification journey. With a compelling mix of attractive design inside and out, high specification levels, and strong and engaging dynamics, the e:Ny1 sets a high bar for future Honda models."
