While India waits for the Honda HR-V, China has moved ahead as Chinese automaker Dongfeng and Honda converted the HR-V into a fully electric version named the eNS1.

The eNS1 is simply an HR-V with an electric motor and a battery to give it a 510 km range. The car that runs on the Chinese streets is now said to be a competitor to the Tesla models.

Honda eNS1 and 2022 H-RV are the same vehicles but the former is attached with a battery pack underneath the existing chassis.

This turned the H-RV into an all-electric SUV with a massive range.
