If you’re looking to dip into the electric car market, why not take a look at the all-new Honda e? The cute battery-powered city car brings zero-emission driving in a modern package, which includes some truly high-end technology. With its compact dimensions, it makes for a superb car for the urban environment, and for those wanting a smart model for the city, this could be for you.
The Honda e looks like something from the not-too-distant future - but could very easily be sitting on your driveway today. The simple yet effective design makes the Honda e a fantastic-looking model, with the round front and rear lights standing out from the Piano Black trim pieces. The sleek effect is enhanced by the lack of conventional door handles and wing mirrors too, with the latter replaced by wing-mounted cameras that transmit their images into the cabin.
With soft-touch materials and a lounge-like feel, the Honda e is a marvellous place to sit for such a small model. The cabin is dominated by a flank of five screens, including two infotainment displays, one instrument screen and two feeds from the wing cameras - with that setup sitting on a wood-effect dash. There’s also good space for passengers and storage room in the boot is up to a good standard too.
The Honda e sits on a new all-electric platform for the brand, and the model has a 134bhp and 315Nm of torque at its disposal. With a range of 136 miles, that allows drivers with urban commutes to go days between charges. You don’t have to worry about emissions either, as the e doesn’t produce any - meaning lower running costs for you.
The all-electric e has a wide range of features for drivers to stick their teeth in to. Multiple safety systems include Adaptive Cruise Control, Collision Mitigation System, Lane Keeping Assist, Cross Traffic Monitor, Blind Spot Information and Road Departure Mitigation. The two infotainment touchscreens are both 12.3-inch and both house the latest Honda Connect software for ultimate connectivity.
