Honda Jazz EV Spotted Testing In India Again

As India enters into the phase of electric mobility, car manufacturers want to put their best foot forward as regards products. Hyundai just this week launched the Kona electric SUV, making it the first electric SUV in the country and the price is a competitive one at that. ₹ 25.30 lakh for a car which retails at a similar price point in other countries too is quite a landmark pricing for an EV which comes with the latest technology and is more about making the customers comfortable about adopting EV technology than making them averse to the future. Honda too has promised to bring in electric cars to the country but we are told by the company that it would not happen till 2023-24. However, the fact that the company is testing the Jazz electric car in the country is a testimony to the fact that there’s more to it than what meets the eye.

For the time time we get to see the Charging Port flap which confirms that this is the Jazz EV

This time around though we also get to see the charging port flap on the right of the car which is evidence that the car is in fact electric. It’s claimed that Honda the new Jazz EV will come with a new electric motor with a range of 300 km, but we do not have any more details on the power figures.  However, the company has revealed no plans to introduce the car in India yet.
