Making its official debut, the Honda e has taken on the famous hill climb at the Goodwood Festival of Speed. Visitors were able to see the Honda e up close and personal at Honda’s impressive stand as they entered into club EV, greeted by Honda product specialists.
Honda celebrated its proud racing heritage over the event weekend and were excited to give spectators a glimpse into the future of electric motoring with the Honda e Prototype. Showcasing its attributes on the famous hill climb, driven by F1 driver Alexander Albon the expectation of a new motoring experience was anticipated.
Unlike the usual throttle revving, ear splitting supercharged rampage up the hill, the Honda e all-electric approached with almost complete silence, albeit the sound of the wheels making contact with the surface of the road. Those close enough may have caught the sound of the efficient, environmentally friendly electric motor doing what it does best, propelling the car smoothly up the hill without putting any harmful emissions into the atmosphere. This is Honda’s vision in action, as they demonstrate the pathway to making the future a reality the Honda way.
A huge moment for Honda, who have been at the forefront of producing world-class hybrids. This demonstration was a stepping-stone towards full electrification and Honda’s objective of having 100% of automotive sales featuring electrified powertrains by 2025.
