Honda will have a sporty 100% electric, which is located below the NSX. You will have four electric motors with 350 hp, all-wheel drive and steering on all four wheels.
Andl japanese manufacturer is developing a sport 100% electric, which take as the basis of the Super Handling-All Wheel Drive (SH-AWD), which will also use the next NSX. It is a system that uses two electric motors on the front axle, which in the case of the NSX benefit of a third flat motor to give the motor to the rear axle.
Honda has already begun work on the next generation system SH-AWD, which experimentally was used recently in the Pikes Peak International Hillclimb this year. The system account with an electric motor for each wheel, combining the vectorization of the pair with a a steering system and four-wheel drive.
Its development began in the year 2012, and from the brand ensure that they are doing everything possible to bring it to market in the short term. However, their industrialization, will depend on how the marching of the sales of the new NSX, which is expected its arrival to the market only in 2017.
in the meantime, Honda has prepared a prototype with the system SH-AWD, but based on the measurements of the current CR-Z, which was placed at the disposal of some specialized media. The prototype has a power of 250-horsepower and a weight with batteries of 1,600 kilograms, with a performance which is surprising, because that marked a 0-100 in 3.5 seconds.
Although ensure that in their production format the drive will have a power of 350 hp and a driving range of around 480 kilometers, which assumes a greater weight due to the addition of batteries large to allow improve your range of action.
Honda ensures that the four electric motors will be relatively inexpensive to produce, since these are components that currently are already available. However this is not an accessible vehicle as the current CR-Z, but rather a sport that will be just a step below of the next NSX.
