Honda reveals new electric cars: The 2025 Honda P7 and S7 could rival the Tesla Model Y EV

The Honda Ye P7 could be the brand's first electric car to make it to Australia.

Honda has detailed its new range of electric cars ahead of the 2024 Beijing motor show.

The new 'Ye Series' electric cars are set to launch in China but there is nothing stopping them becoming global models.

There are three electric cars in the model line-up: two SUVs called the P7 and S7 and a performance-themed Ye GT Concept.

The P7 and S7 are built on the brand’s new dedicated electric car platform and are set to go on sale in China at the end of this year.

It’s most likely one of these models could go global as Honda followed a similar path with the electric version of the HR-V - called the e:Ny1 - that was initially sold in China before expanding to Europe.

It is believed one of the first Honda electric cars to arrive in Australia would be an SUV, but that model isn’t expected before 2026.

The P7 would be the most likely of the two to make it Down Under as its styling fits with the brand’s current local range and it appears to be a similar size to the all conquering Tesla Model Y.

The Honda Ye S7 will be produced in rear- and all-wheel drive.

Honda says the P7 and S7 will be produced in rear- and all-wheel drive layouts.

Rear-wheel drive variants will use one electric motor and all-wheel drive examples will gain a second front-mounted motor.

Honda claims single motor versions will “offer sporty and crisp handling” and the dual motor versions will have “high power and highly responsive handling”.

The dedicated electric car platform will allow for increased interior space in both rows.

The Ye GT Concept is a more performance focused car.

Electric cars benefit from several packaging advanatages because the lack of mechanical elements found in petrol cars allow for a longer wheelbase - the distance between the front and rear wheels - providing more room front and back.

Honda says the instrument and door panels will have LED lights and there will be an AI-powered assistant.

The Ye GT Concept mimics Kia’s EV6 electric car with a liftback silhouette, generous proportions and sharp front end.

Details are scarce for the GT Concept but Honda claims it’ll have dynamic performance and provide “the ultimate driving experience”.
