It's been unveiled at the 2020 Beijing International Automotive Exhibition, and the brand says it or some variation of it will hit mass-production to become the Honda's first true EV offering in the Chinese market.

There's not a great deal of information around the vehicle right now, but Honda has said it'll be Honda Sensing safety tech, which is essentially omnidirectional ADAS. The machine will include "omnidirectional ADAS" that uses 360-degree radar and a wide-angle front camera to offer driving assistance that's better aware of objects on your periphery.

Unfortunately, Honda did not release interior photos of the SUV e:concept, showing only three exterior shots.

In addition, the production vehicle will also focus on tech; its Connect system will include a smartphone link, wireless updates and an AI assistant interface.

The horizontal LED headlights and taillights have a similar shape and layout to one another, with each pair connected by an illuminated strip and featuring an illuminated Honda logo below.

The trapezoidal fascia has been replicated at the rear as well.

Called simply as e-concept, the Honda vehicle grabbed quite a few eyeballs as it sought to take the limelight at Beijing Auto Show, an event which began Saturday after being delayed due to the Covid-19 outbreak.

Two doors on an SUV isn't necessarily entirely unprecedented, but it isn't a look that's flourished too much in Europe and America of late, so it's unsurprising that Honda's pitching this more heavily toward China.
