the honda E electric car debuts with official pricing before summer launch

honda has released the first official images of its new honda e electric vehicle ahead of its summer launch. unveiled for the first time during the frankfurt motor show, the zero-emission car is part of the japanese automaker’s plan to electrify its entire lineup by 2025.

honda keeps a lot of features that were included in the concept, shown earlier this year at the geneva motor show, such as the pop-out door handles and a digital key. the side-mounted cameras also remain intact, despite legal issues in the US. the system replaces conventional mirrors with 6-inch screens at the left and right of a five-screen digital dashboard.



two 12.3-inch LCD touchscreens in the center form an infotainment display, while an 8.8-inch screen acts as the driver’s instrument cluster. it also comes equipped with a personal assistant that lets users control certain functions by saying ‘OK honda’. away from the car, honda e owners can use the my honda+ smartphone application, with features like charging point navigation, climate control and vehicle condition reports.



the honda e is equipped with a high-power electric motor available with two power outputs of 100 kW (136ps) or 113kW (154ps), and torque of 315Nm. the 35.5kWh battery delivers a range of up to 220km from a single charge, and fast-charging capability allows recharge to 80% capacity in 30 minutes. acceleration from a standing start reaches 0-100km/h in approximately 8 seconds.



the honda e’s 134-hp spec starts at £26,160 (approximately €29,470/$32,300), with the more powerful priced at £28,660 (about €32,180/$35,300). customers can make a reservation for priority ordering online in UK, germany, france and norway, or register their interest in other european markets on honda national websites. the honda e will start to ship later in summer 2020.
