Honda E – Making History in Style
The New Honda E is not a prototype…it’s happening right here, right now, with yours to reserve from Summer 2019 all for under £27,000.
Electric Car Looks vs Petrol Car Looks
The Honda E is reminiscent of the early Honda Civic; but the fact is that when you actually look it at, this one comes across as very much a fresh design – something that cuts loose from today’s design norms. Its compact size is ideal for city driving and with a range of over 125 miles, you can be reassured on longer journeys. The UK’s network of charging points means you can extend your journeys even longer, without having to restrict yourself to city travel.
Like with all new cars you see with large, old-fashioned front grilles, big exhaust pipes and sparkling wheel rims; most of the time, these things aren’t styled that way because the technology requires it. Rather, they’re styled that way to appeal to our sense of nostalgia. They’re styled that way to resonate with the part of our minds that tells us that a car is good because it conforms to what we have seen before.
The Honda E, in contrast, just feels totally new; there’s no grille, just a smart black strip across the front with LED headlights at either end; there’s no glistening silverware, just flush features that you barely notice; there’s no tinsel here and there are no trinkets – just clean, sleek, efficient design.
Honda EV Price and Performance
You’re looking at less than £27,000 for this car, and the electric motor you’re getting for your money should get you from 0-60 in around 8 seconds, so there’s no need to worry about electric cars being sluggish! There is also a fast charging option, taking your battery charge to 80% in just 30 minutes.
The Honda E blends emission free driving with sporty yet nimble performance. One exciting feature of the Honda E is that there are no wing mirrors; these have in fact been replaced with rear cameras to enhance visibility.
There’s no gear-shifting required by the driver, but the car does have two drive modes – Normal and Sport. And what about that all-important battery that powers the motor? Well, if you peer into the inner workings, you’ll find a 36kWh lithium-ion battery that should give a range of more than 136 miles. It also has water-cooling technology to ensure maximum efficiency.
If you’re looking for an electric car, the Honda E certainly offer you all you need and want in an electric vehicle. Reserve yours today.
