With all that being said, if you’re in the market for a Honda e, there’s a good chance you’ll very rarely ever leave the city with it – making the shorter range less of a concern. Starting at £26,600 inclusive of £3,000 Government Plug-in Car Grant discount, it comes with some other neat urban tricks, too, such as being able to make a 180-degree turn in just 8.6 meters and a host of premium features as standard including smarty entry and start, leather steering wheel, sky roof, rear privacy glass and front heated seats to name a few.
Should you want to venture on the motorway, though, the little Honda’s rapid charging ability of 80% battery charge in 30 minutes should make light work of a motorway stint with breaks in-between. The 100mph top speed means you won’t feel out of your depth around faster vehicles, either.
As Honda’s first all-electric urban car, the e represents an important first step for Honda into the mainstream EV market. Whilst the range could be longer, all is forgiven with those adorable looks.
