True to the speculations, Honda went ahead and revealed a brand new electric SUV concept at the Beijing Auto Show, calling it the e:concept.

The front facia is different in the sense that it has sleeker headlights, no front grille, and a long and flat hood/front-trunk that gives the car a proper SUV look. The front windshield is reminiscent of the Tesla Model X, as it continues all the way over to the roof as this huge, unbroke glass piece that makes up both the roof and the windshield.
The side profile of the car is fairly clean and standard, however, you do notice the huge wheels and the fact that it is a 3 door SUV concept. However, it is being speculated that the 3-doors are just a concept element and the full-production version shall have 5 doors and 5 seats.
The rear is also slightly different, but is unmistakably ‘Honda’ at the same time, with sharp taillights, conjoined by a sleek light bar that runs across the rear width. A slightly different element is the sportback-esque tail design that makes the car look more hunkered down and sporty. The vehicle, being a crossover SUV, has high ground clearance as well.
