Honda has announced that reservations for its new urban electric vehicle, the ‘Honda e’ are now open in England, Germany, France and Norway. A dedicated website allows customers to make a priority status reservation and order the Honda e with a refundable reservation fee.
Customers will be able to place their order later this year with the first deliveries of the vehicle being from Spring 2020. Jean-Marc Streng, General Manager, Automobile Division – Honda Motor Europe Ltd said they are delighted to be offering this reservation option to their customers in selected European markets for the first time.
The Honda e in prototype form received overwhelming response with over 25,000 registrations in Europe, as customers now enjoy the opportunity to secure priority status to order the model.
The Honda e takes a bold step forward with its design and technology and will contribute towards Honda’s commitment to 100% of automobile sales in Europe with electric powertrains by 2025. The compact electric car offers trademark Honda driving dynamics, aided by the sporty rear-wheel drive format and an advanced electric powertrain.
The first compact Honda on a dedicated EV platform delivers a blend of efficiency, performance & usability that is perfect for urban environments. The Honda e will deliver a range of over 200km and has the capability to ‘fast charge’ to 80% battery capacity in 30 minutes.
The contemporary styling of the Honda e is characterised by clean, simple body lines, smooth contours and stepless A-pillars that sit virtually flush with the glass. Inside, the spacious, contemporary interior creates a comfortable lounge-like feel with an intuitive and customisable dual touch-screen interface to keep passengers engaged with today’s digital lifestyles.
Buyers only need to pay a refundable deposit of USD1,000 and choose from one of five available colors: black, blue, gray, white or yellow. The Honda e’s price tag will be revealed closer to the market launch.
