This display can wirelessly connect to various smartphones via Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, Bluetooth, and USB. Additionally, it offers access to sub-screen functions such as the Assistant Side View Monitor (ASVM), Assistant Rear View Monitor (ARVM), wireless charging and shortcuts commonly used for infotainment settings.

Honda has also stressed on safety features, as the Elevate incorporates the ‘Honda Sensing’ suite of advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS). These include adaptive cruise control, road departure mitigation system, collision mitigation braking system, lane keep assist, lead car departure notification and auto high-beam assist. Other safety features include six airbags, vehicle stability assist, hill start assist, the camera-based ‘Lane-Watch’ blind spot monitor and a reverse camera.
Honda Elevate: Manufacturing
The Tapukara plant in Rajasthan will be the manufacturing hub for the Honda Elevate
The Tapukara plant in Rajasthan will be the manufacturing hub for the Honda Elevate. With a maximum capacity of 2 lakh units, the plant only produced 1.2 lakh vehicles last year.
Honda also plans to export the Elevate from India to other markets in the time to come, as exports make up 20 per cent of Honda Car India's total sales.
Honda Elevate: Engine and Transmissions
It is powered by a 1.5-litre V-TEC engine that produces 119 bhp and 145 Nm of torque
Under the hood, the Honda Elevate is powered by a 1.5-litre V-TEC engine that produces a peak of 119 bhp and 145 Nm of torque. Buyers will have the option of a 6-speed manual transmission and a 7-step continuously variable transmission (CVT). There is no diesel engine option, and Honda has ruled out a strong hybrid powertrain for the Elevate. It has, however, confirmed there will be an all-electric SUV based on the Elevate that will be launched within three years.
Honda Elevate: Bookings and Launch details
Bookings for the Elevate are set to begin in July 2023, followed by the market launch in October. We anticipate prices to be in the range of Rs 11 lakh to Rs 16 lakh (ex-showroom).
