On May 23, 2022, Honda applied for a patent for a "battery pack-mounted vehicle".

The patent drawing depicts a small car with two rows of seats, and the battery pack can be seen under the seats.

In addition, the patent itself is "a vehicle equipped with a battery pack that can suppress the deformation of the battery pack without increasing the weight of the vehicle body", which is not directly related to a specific new vehicle.

Will "Fit EV" be resurrected?

Fit EV(2012年)

Among the two-row-seat compact cars sold by Honda, the first thing that emerges is the "Fit". In 2012, Fit launched the "Fit EV" model, which is mainly leased and sold to local governments and enterprises.

Honda has previously leased and sold "EV Plus" electric vehicles equipped with nickel-metal hydride batteries in Japan, and has introduced electric small vehicles many times.

The small car equipped with batteries this time may be added to existing models, or it may be set as a next-generation model with the resurrected Fit EV.

Expected to debut by 2030

Information published by Honda on April 12, 2022

Honda announced at a press conference on its four-wheeled electric business plan held on April 12, 2022 that it will launch 30 electric vehicles globally by 2030. At the same time, it also announced that 3 new electric vehicles will be launched in 2023. It is speculated that these three electric vehicles should refer to the "e:N series" introduced in Europe and China. If the Fit EV will be launched, it should not be until after 2024.

2024In the first half of the year, there will also be light EV vehicles on the market

Honda also has plans to launch commercial light EVs in 2024. In addition, light EVs such as "Nissan Sakura" and "Mitsubishi eK X EV" released on May 20, 2022 are also scheduled to be launched, but they should still be given priority to business.

The press conference also hinted that sports models like NSX and Prelude will be resurrected as electric vehicles in the future.
