Independent Review - By Car and Driving

The compact Honda e:Ny1 crossover is the brand's first higher volume EV. Jonathan Crouch drives it.

Ten Second Review

Honda gets serious about EVs with this e:Ny1, a battery-powered compact crossover for small families. The unassuming looks and modest range and charging figures hide some tech cleverness here - in the cabin and in potential options for charge management. Honda's still a company of innovation. Thank goodness.

Background

Things are starting to get serious for car makers in the EV revolution. EV models can no longer be range-topping or fashion-orientated curiosities in their model line-up. Tough new UK government fleet emissions regulations mean that EVs must account for at least 22% of manufacturers sales by 2024 (and 80% by 2030). The 2024 target is one Honda needs to hit quickly. Virtually its whole range is electrified, but only one model - the Honda e - is a full-EV, and that sells in tiny numbers. Time to switch up a gear - with this car, the e:Ny1. It's actually pronounced "e-en-why-one" and it's basically an electric small crossover equivalent to the brand's HR-V full-Hybrid. The two cars are positioned quite differently though and the e:Ny1 sits on its own bespoke 'e:N Architecture F' platform. It's the first of thirty EV models Honda's planning to launch between now and 2030. But is it likely to sell as the brand needs it to?. Let's take a look.

Driving Experience

Well quite a rapid take-off from rest - this car's a bit 'old school EV' like that. Which might be something of a problem if the tarmac's damp and you've selected the most urgent of the three provided drive modes - 'Sport'. With that engaged in such conditions, it really is extremely easy to spin the front wheels and, if you're on a bend, find yourself being skipped over to a part of the road you didn't really want to be on. Apply the throttle more evenly or restrict yourself to the other two provided drive settings (''Econ' and 'Normal') and in damp conditions this won't be so much of an issue. But we still think that this e:Ny1's rather abrupt torque delivery would be better managed if Honda specified a grippier set of tyres, rather than the efficiency-orientated Continental UltraContact rubber fitted here. This, after all, is an HR-V-sized crossover with around 50% more power than an HR-V - 201bhp to be exact, with 310Nm of torque and 0-62mph in 7.6s, though of course if you exercise either of those figures to any great extent (or approach the limited 99mph top speed), you'll find the 68.8kWh battery's mileage range dropping like a stone. Which is something you're going to have to manage because there isn't that much of it - at least not by the standards of the EVs that sell at this Honda's quite exalted price point. As you'll hear elsewhere in this film, the quoted 256 mile range figure (which incidentally we've found very difficult to replicate with this test car) is somewhat disappointing in a class where the norm is 270-280 miles, with better models up at 320-340 miles. Of course, if - as will often be the case - this e:Ny1 is only to be used as an extra car for suburban journeys, then range realism won't matter much. For that, your priorities are likely to centre more on ride and refinement. Does this Honda make up ground there? To some extent, yes. All removal of an engine does in quite a few EVs in this class is to more greatly highlight wind and tyre noise; there's little of either here and you really get the benefit of that at higher speeds, where progress is accompanied by the kind of hush you'd expect in a larger, more expensive EV. This hasn't been achieved by accident; the wheels feature built-in resonators to try and cancel out road roar, there's a special damper on the rear axle and 'strategically placed' insulation has been scattered around the cabin. In suburbia though, all this effort's occasionally slightly undermined by a higher-than-usual level of electric motor whine, which sometimes even eclipses the mandatory pedestrian warning noise. Ride quality's a bit of a mixed bag too. On the highway, it's very good, but you might not be so impressed over poorer surfaces at urban speeds, where potholes and speed humps are sometimes more keenly felt than you might ideally like. No adaptive damping system's offered to help counter this.

Design and Build

There's every chance you might mistake the e:Ny1 for its Hybrid combustion-powered HR-V stablemate, rather than the completely new design it is. The looks, dimensions and token crossover vibe are all similar with both cars and, in the case of the e:Ny1, pretty conventional. Which is a touch disappointing after the adventurous and futuristic styling of the brand's very first EV, the Honda e. But that didn't sell very well and wasn't targeted at the kind of volumes being envisaged here. A flush front grille houses a centrally-mounted charging point and there's EV-specific badge treatment that sees the brand logo finished in white. The 4,390mm length is a few cms bigger than, say, a Peugeot e-2008. And there's a full-width light bar across the tailgate. Honda's gone for a big Tesla-like portrait-orientated 15.1-inch touchscreen inside and a 10.25-inch digital instrument panel, so there's a satisfyingly tech-heavy cockpit feel, though physical buttons and switchgear still feature. The central screen is divided into three zones, the top for smartphone navigation systems, the middle for EV and audio functions and the bottom for ventilation and heating controls. A 2,610mm wheelbase length doesn't promise particularly generous levels of rear seat legroom and to access the back, you've to dodge a tapering C-pillar. Once inside at the back, space for rear folk is just about class competitive. With top 'Advance'-spec, the boot capacity is 344-litres, which is about 10% more space than you'd get in an HR-V and almost twice as big as the cargo area of a Honda e. Cheaper 'Elegance' models have a 361-litre boot.

Market and Model

Expect a starting figure for e:Ny1 ownership of around £40,000, but that'll probably be irrelevant to most likely owners who'll be acquiring the car under some sort of PCP finance scheme. The ambitious pricing is at least matched by high equipment levels, whether you go for base 'Elegance'-spec or, for just over £2,000 more, range-topping 'Advance'-spec. Across the line-up, inside, a 15.1-inch centre touchscreen with navigation and 'Apple CarPlay'/'Android Auto' smartphone-mirroring. And there's a 10.25-inch digital instrument panel, alloy wheels, auto headlamps and wipers and climate control. 'Advance'-spec adds synthetic leather upholstery, a panoramic glass roof, a hands-free powered tailgate, a premium audio system and a heated steering wheel. Safety kit across the range runs to a Collision Mitigating Braking System, Lane Keeping Assist, Traffic Sign Recognition, Road Departure Mitigation, Lead Car Departure Notification, Adaptive Cruise Control and an Intelligent Speed Limiter which adapts to the limit signs you pass. With this car, Honda is also offering the latest version of its Honda+ smartphone app, which includes remote vehicle locking and unlocking, plus 'intelligent geofencing', which alerts an owner if the vehicle breaches a pre-set 'geofence' zone. Plus there's the ability to send journey information from the app to the car's navigation system.

Cost of Ownership

The price includes 5 Years Complimentary Servicing, 5 Year Guarantee and 5 Years UK + European Roadside Assistance. We gave you the EV driving range of this car earlier, rated at 256 miles. Honda reckons more than that isn't particularly necessary for the target market, who they think will want the car mainly for local journeys. The brand hasn't pushed the boat out in developing a high charging speed either. The e:Ny1's platform and 68.8kWh battery can accept a maximum DC charging speed that's limited to 78kW. At a public rapid charger, that means that it will take this Honda 45 minutes to charge from 10 to 80% capacity and the brand says that at such a charging station, you can add 62 miles of charge in 11 minutes. Subtle lighting, hidden beneath the leading edge of the bonnet, sweeps from right to left indicating charging. It will flash if there's a charging problem and then 'wink' goodbye to you when the cable is removed. All little details that potential customers will like. But maybe not quite as much as the company's clever 'e:Progress' charge management system, technology the company says can save owners money while also helping to reduce their carbon footprint. It isn't going to be offered on this car from launch, but Honda aims to have it fitted within the next couple of years. The set-up is based around a bi-directional smart charging hub, which can monitor the current status of the electricity grid. If that grid has a surplus amount of energy, the hub will charge the car connected to it. Should the grid be in a power deficit, the hub will siphon power away from the car and either sell it back to the grid or use it for power in the building the charger's connected to. Honda says this intelligent charge management system will help to smooth out daily electricity power peaks and prevent black-outs from over-exerting the electricity grid. And the brand believes the system could save between £400 and £500 from its customers' annual energy bills; high mileage drivers might even potentially double that figure. The 'e:Progress' charge management system could also significantly reduce an e:Ny1 owner's carbon emissions, especially when if it is paired with an eco-orientated energy tariff.

Summary

This is certainly a more pragmatic kind of Honda EV. While a Honda e feels little more than a fashion bauble, the e:Ny1 is the kind of electric Honda you could actually countenance owning. Though we can't help feeling that for those committed to the brand and wanting a small crossover, right here, right now, the company's HR-V Hybrid might be a safer and more usable all-round choice. The industry though, is out to convince you that owning an EV is where it's at and if you've bought into that rhetoric (or need to for tax or work reasons), there are plenty of things you might like about an e:Ny1. You might not be immediately sold on this car's conservative looks, but Honda cabins are models of economic excellence and this one doesn't disappoint in that regard either. We'd like to have seen a faster charging speed and greater EV range, but you can bet Honda's working on that. In the meantime, the e:Ny1 has just enough of the brand's originality about it to merit a place on your shopping list if you're browsing in this segment.
