    Honda prices its adorable electric e for summer launch

    Honda prices its adorable electric e for summer launch
    by Thomas Ricker





    Fans of cute, boxy cars, take notice! The production model of the electric Honda e has just been revealed in Frankfurt along with final specs and pricing. The good news is that much of what we loved in the last prototype will begin shipping in summer 2020. Bad news? The battery and price — although they’re not too bad.

    The Honda e will launch in the UK and Germany starting at £26,160 and €29,470, respectively. The base model is equipped with a compact 35.5kWh battery capable of transporting occupants 137 miles (220 km) on a full charge. The Honda e produces 134 horsepower (or 152 horsepower if you upgrade from the base motor) and features fast-charging with a claimed zero to 80 percent charge in 30 minutes.

    For comparison, the base model of the new Volkswagen ID.3 has a 45kWh battery and offers 205 miles of range for roughly the same price, while Tesla’s more expensive base Model 3 has a 50kWh battery and a stated range of 240 miles.

    Yet another ~$30k EV hatchback for the European market.

    Specs are a bit sub-par compared to the other recently-unveiled, summer-availability EV: the VW ID.3. However, the design and interior on this is far more appealing to me than the ID.3. Plus the side cameras instead of side-view mirrors adds some novelty (exclusivity on that didn't last long for Audi, I guess). If I were in Europe and wanted an electric hatch, I'd take this over the ID.3 in a heartbeat.

    I think this Honda will sell well (for an electric) based on its looks - it has a coolness to it, but nothing to do with being electric.

    It's got a funky tech retro thing going on...not my cup of tea but I wouldn't call it horrific. Looking at the dash makes me want to pop an old Atari cartridge in one of the ac vents.

    This car is for common class useless eaters. How stylish the dash is of no concern to those people.

    Now since you like to rub your naughty bits across the dash while you drive...There is always the newly printed Porscha Tacyon.

    A fad model that will sell 10-20K units then die off like the Smart car. Honda needs to build an EV Element. That will get bought up like crazy.
