Honda has unveiled a new concept at this year’s Beijing Motor Show called the Everus EV Concept, which previews the first mass-production EV model Honda will introduce exclusively in China in the future.

At first glance, it certainly looks like a futuristic version of the Honda HR-V, with almost all the same lines as the B-segment crossover and even the high-mounted rear door handles. However, the front fascia features 3D-effect headlamps, the Everus badge and the grille has been redesigned to accommodate what should be a charging port.

The lower apron now sports a prominent intake, with the “mouth” being flanked by slim LED strips in the corners of the bumper. Blue lighting strips are also aplenty here, as seen at the base of the bonnet, bumper lip and side skirts.

For now, the release doesn’t include any details about the electric powertrain that is used, but we are told the production version will go on sale this year. The crossover will be marketed under the Everus brand owned by Guangqi Honda, a joint venture between Honda and Guangzhou Automobile Group (GAC Group).
