Honda showed off the E: Prototype SUV during Auto Shanghai 2021, which announced the company’s future production electric vehicle. There have been no snapshots of the car’s interior before, but now a video has emerged that looks at the future Honda interior design language.

The so-called “simplicity and something” design philosophy is based on the classic, human-centered design of early Honda vehicles. The automaker’s main focus is on the reduced complexity of the internal layout, which should create a more advanced user experience.

Another key element is the approach to maximize interior space while minimizing the space required for mechanical and electronic components.

Simplicity of design requires not only a rigorous philosophy but also discipline with regard to user experience.

One thing that won’t change much from the brand’s current interior design language is the emphasis on thin columns, low bonnet. This creates a feeling of spaciousness inside the cab as well as excellent visibility with a good view of the road and the outside environment.

“Something” in philosophy refers to Honda’s commitment to creating interiors that are emotionally connected to their owners. This is reflected in unusual design details such as the “neat knurling of the handle or the charm of the material”. In general, “simplicity” will be Honda’s design language across the entire lineup, while “something” will be personality and appeal unique to each model.
