Next Honda NSX fully electric?
|   Sunday, June 11, 2017
Honda examines whether the electric EV Concept to production model can be elaborated. If so, then the next-generation NSX will be an electrical supercar.

The electric concept car, which Honda last year was third in the hill climb Pikes Peak, may be developed to production model. "We want that electric cars are fun to drive. It is clear that this possibility, with around 1,000 horsepower, is both fun and that the technique may eventually be put into production," said Head of Research & Development Yosuke Sekino this week at a demonstration.


It boils down to the next generation Honda NSX is a fully electric car. Currently reach the 70 kWh lithium-ion battery pack and four electric motors equipped EV Concept 'only' a top speed of 250 km / h. But that, "he'll quickly: the 0-100 km / h sprint in 2.5 seconds may be over and the driver can already at 200 km / h in 6.2 seconds down.

Special technology

The particularity of the electric supercar is not so much the power available, but the fact that a separate electrical motor is at each of the wheels. Thus, the available torque can be (now 800 Nm) are distributed over the wheels so that it can independently of each other to rotate faster or slower, with maximum grip as a result. Honda also wants to further develop the Torque Vectoring technology. The research and development focuses on implementation of the system in high performance cars, according to Sekino magazine Autocar .

Of course it will - if only by safety measures - even an increase in the weight of the car, and thereby diminish the range of the batteries. It is now at moderate speed on a theoretical 320 km. But by the time the car would appear - which is expected to take yet another six years - will battery packs on the market are available that allow greater range.
