The Honda E | DRO4CARS

Why the Honda e Instead of Honda E?!

I’m struggling with the small e. It has to be capitalized E. It’s about the Honda E that is a small car in the B-segment but I feel its energy, its power which says to me “The producer is wrong!!! I have to be a big E”. In respect of my emotions and feelings, I just change the whole model name in the automotive industry. The Honda E! Red-dot Award-winging Honda E!

The Honda E is part of the Honda E: TECHNOLOGY that aims to electrify the whole European Honda range. This process has been started with the Honda Jazz Hybrid and now it’s time to welcome the Honda’s first all-electric model Honda E.

The Honda E body made with high-strength materials that reduce weight and improve ride comfort. The lightweight materials are used for the chassis that is designed to provide the ideal platform from which to fine-tune suspension and steering settings. On the sides of the chassis, there are three protective ribs that protect the battery from a side-impact and another safety feature is the pop-up hood to improve pedestrian protection.

Although the dashboard might look like TV furniture I do like the clean and minimalistic design. I do also like the wooden contrast between the top part and the bottom. All screens underline the furniture experience. A negative point could be that there isn't an armrest for the front seats, especially for the driver.

This body made by high-strength and lightweight materials and the E is powered by Honda electric powertrain technologies. The electric motor provides up to 154 hp (113 kW) and the max torque is 315 Nm (232.33 lb.ft). This is the most powerful version, available on Advance grade (equipment level). Using this unit you can run the E from 0-100 km/h (0-60 mph) in 8.3 seconds.  

The Honda E also offers a less powerful version with 136 hp (100 kW) similar to the engine available for the Peugeot e-206 and Opel Corsa-e. The entry-level Honda E is able to run to 100 km/h (60 mph) in 9 seconds.

The Honda E uses a 35.5 kWh Lithium-ion high-capacity battery. The range of the Honda E is around 220 km (136.7 mi) (16-inch wheels). If you have the entry-level Honda E the will be around 222 km (137.9 mi) and if your choice is the Advance equipment level that comes with 17-inch wheels and the range is about 210 km (130.5 mi). All ranges are given due to WLTP.

As any other electric vehicle Honda e comes with a fast-charger CCS2 DC rapid charger that provides up 80% of the range in 30 minutes.  Another option for recharging the Honda E is with Type 2 AC connection that charges to full in 4.1 hrs, with a 7.4 kW supply. 

The Honda E price in Germany is €33,850 (app. 36,682.74 USD); the Honda E Advance grade is €36,850 (app. 39,933.79 USD).
