Meanwhile at its intelligent technology booth, Honda will offer exhibits that enable visitors to “experience” the recently announced Honda CONNECT 4.0, the new-generation connected technology, and the Honda Sensing 360 omnidirectional advanced driver-assistance system (ADAS).
Last but not least, Honda will have a wide variety of “FUN” models on display at its motorcycle booth, including the Chinese premiere of all-new global models which will be introduced to the Honda DreamWing sales channel for large-size Honda motorcycles in China, as well as a number of customized models.

The exterior design of the e:N2 Concept features sharp and dynamic body lines and surface finishing which highlights the metallic look, aiming to present new styling that does not belong to any existing categories. The interior was designed with an aim to realize the value of this EV as a “space” where occupants can enjoy “intellectual exhilaration.”
To this end, a clean and uncluttered digital cockpit was adopted, and smart hospitality for the occupants will be offered with the latest Honda CONNECT features as well as the effective presentation of lighting and scents.
As for driving performance, a dedicated architecture was developed exclusively for the e:N Series, as the e:N2 Concept was designed to achieve unique driving pleasure, enabling the driver to enjoy a strong “sense of unity with the vehicle, which Honda claims it can achieve through the new e:N Architecture F platform.
