The Honda e is the model that should more or less drive Honda’s switch to electrifying its European model range by 2025. The compact EV comes in two versions: the basic version has 136hp, the optional version has a 154hp electric motor. In both cases, the rear-wheel drive Honda e has a 35.5 kWh battery pack, giving it an electric range of up to 220 kilometers according to the WLTP cycle. In its most powerful version it should sprint to 100 km/h in 8 seconds.
The interior of the Honda combines retro design with high-tech. The two 12.3-inch LCD touch screens, which cover almost the entire width of the cockpit, emphasize the high gadget content of the car. Then there’s Side Camera Mirror System: cameras placed on sticks that show their images on two 6-inch displays and thus function as side mirrors. The Honda e also has a digital assistant, Honda Personal Assistant, on board. By saying ‘OK Honda’ you can give the system various commands.
