Honda E
« on: 06 March 2021, 19:49:23 »

I saw one of these parked up today ... they're certainly different. Not sure I like the 'wooden' trim  :-\

I've just looked them up on Auto Trader ...... How much?!?!?!?  :o :o

The 'wood' looks better than the '70s Civics :D

Looks very woke though... absolutely zero character. Needs a Hotpoint badge on it.

Zero character?  ;D

Compared to what?  Fiat 500?  Vauxhall Nova?  Ford Ka?

The Honda E is a marvellous little bit of kit.  I am known for saying, on record, that the Nissan Cube is a great design also, though!  :P

I like it!  :y  Maybe has a hint of a MK1 VW Golf about it?  ???

Can't see the need for all the screens on the dash though?  :-\

It might be, but looks like a cardboard box ..... and a very very expensive one at that.

It does a much better job of retaining original styling cues in a modern car than attempts like the Mini, F500, and Beetle do.


Like all this sort of thing, it deliberately looks different to other current Hondas. After a few years, the same tech will spread to other models, and you'll not be able to tell which are electric and which aren't. Just like Toyota did with the Prius, and BMW have done with the E-Minis, which use the same drivetrain as the I3 without the expensive carbonfibre shell and trying even harder styling. You'll also notice the Mini is somewhat cheaper than the I3 was.

I'm guessing, as people on a Vx Omega Forum that we have a shared affiliation with large saloons.

Of course the little Honda E is going to be a bit 'meh'..... but it serves a purpose.  It serves a purpose and it does it incredibly well.  If I lived in that shithole London, or any other City Centre and needed a car.... the Honda E would be it.  30k is not a stupid amount (what's the Government scheme nowadays?).

It just looks... Only way to tell its face from its arse is the colour of the number plate... much like a Mazda 121 :D

I have yet to see a current, no pun intended ::), car and thought 'I quite fancy one of those' :-\

That said, I'll see a '61 plate and think that's nearly new ;D

I like the E, not enough to buy one, but I do like it.

As for current cars, outside of the exotica, I really like both the I-pace and the EQC, but not sure about them as an ownership proposition given the state of the non-tesla charging infrastructure.

Heated seats, heated steering wheel, 3 pin mains plug, that should drop your maximum range from 131 miles to about 10.  ;D
