Aside from some exterior images, little else is known about the SUV e:Prototype, although several reports do suggest it is related to the recently revealed third-generation HR-V small SUV due to their striking design similarities.
Reports suggest the SUV e:Prototype is related to the third-generation HR-V small SUV due to their design similarities.
That said, Honda did announce a partnership with General Motors in 2020, with the former to use the latter’s modular EV platform and Ultium batteries for two zero-emissions models, one of which could be the series-production version of the SUV e:Prototype.
As always, time will tell, so stay tuned. In the meantime, though, the new HR-V is set to launch in Australia before the end of the first quarter of 2022, with a ‘self-charging’ hybrid powertrain all but confirmed to be a part of the local range.
