Honda showcased the all-electric SUVs concepts at the Auto Shanghai 2023. These e-SUVs, including the e:N SUV Concept, e:NP2 Prototype, and e:NS2 Prototype, will go on sale next year in the Chinese market. Two of the three electric SUVs are production-ready, and the third is merely a concept. The carmaker has also revealed the e:N GT concept at the Shanghai Motor Show. It was unveiled the previous year and has not undergone any changes since then. A production vehicle is anticipated to appear in 2025. The Honda e:NP2 Prototype and the e:NS2 Prototype, are the automaker's second wave of e:N Series EV cars, and they are likely to go on sale in China early next year. The third wave of e:N Series EVS, which is expected to hit the market before the end of 2024, includes the e:N SUV. In China, the production-spec e:NS2 and e:NP2 electric SUVs will succeed the HR-V-based e:NS1 and e:NP1, which were launched last year. Appearance-wise, these two upcoming electric SUVs will follow their predecessors. However, these new EVs, in contrast to their smaller Honda HR-V-based ancestors, have distinguishing design elements including different front and rear profiles. The remainder of the body, however, is the same. Here are a few more details about these electric SUVs and the future plans of the carmaker.

The e:NP2 version sports a design that is quite similar to the Honda Civic, whereas the e:NS2 has angular LED daytime running lights. Right now, the automaker has not shared any exact details about the dimensions and other specifications of these models.

These electric cars' interiors claim to be intelligent because of simple and smart features like the Honda Connect 4.0.
