Honda claims the apparently production ready X-NV, developed jointly by Honda Motor China Technology and local joint venture partner Dongfeng Honda (which has just opened a third factory), is a "concept model" for the first mass-production EV Dongfeng will soon introduce for sale only in China.

It's scheduled for showrooms in the second half of 2019.

At the Shanghai motor show, Honda also launched the Odyssey Hybrid (a product with JV partner GAC), which is on sale at the end of April, and also displayed a second generation Connect system for potential customers to try.

Honda's mid-term vision for electrification in China, announced last year, is to "introduce more than 20 electrified models to the market by 2025".

GAC Honda introduced an EV developed exclusively for China, called Everus VE-1, last year, and the brand is also planning to introduce plug-in hybrid models from 2020.

To complete the 'mobility' vision, it introduced the V-Go electric motorcycle and Transcooter electrified micro products last year and plans more.
