Review: The New Honda e
The new Honda e recently joined Honda’s model line-up as the company’s first all-electric urban car. Its size and price make it strong competition for the Peugeot e-208 and Renault Zoe. So, what makes the Honda e stand out from other compact electric cars? Let’s delve deeper to find out more details such as the Honda e price, driving range and design.
As the demand for electric cars continues to rise, GB Vehicle Leasing feel it’s a wise move for Honda to jump into the electric car market. In particular this electric Honda has a unique design with futuristic technology, making it stand out from rivals. This includes sleek pop-out door handles for a clean and modern look. Plus, the Honda e has plenty of Honda Genuine Accessories available to make this your ideal electric car. However, its small 171-litre boot space is much smaller than that of the Renault Zoe. The small boot of the Honda e is largely due to the electric motor taking up room, and this might put off some potential customers.
As for the Honda e interior, Honda has decided to keep it minimalistic, yet modern. High quality materials have been used throughout, giving this car a slightly smarter feel than the Peugeot e-208. GB Vehicle Leasing particularly like the dual-screen digital dashboard and the panoramic sky roof is a real bonus. Also, this electric car comes with the latest safety and driver assistance technologies to enhance your driving experience. However, some of these features such as Honda Parking Pilot are only available on the Honda e Advance.
The Honda e is available in two power outputs and can comfortably accommodate up to 4 occupants. As for driving range, the Honda e has a range of up to 137 miles. While this isn’t as long as some rivals, this should be sufficient enough for many customers. Furthermore, the Honda e can reach 0-60mph in 8.3 seconds. This is only marginally slower than the Peugeot e-208, although the difference is essentially unnoticeable.
How much does the Honda e cost?
Pricing for the new Honda e starts from £28,215 (inc. plug-in car grant) and it’s available in two trim levels – either the e or e Advance. This is around the same price as the entry-level Peugeot e-208 and Renault Zoe. By opting for the Honda e Advance from £30,715 (inc. plug-in car grant), you get additional features such as a heated steering wheel and Honda parking pilot. For those looking for a cheaper alternative electric car, you might want to consider the Fiat 500 Electric instead. That said, securing a Honda e lease deal through GB Vehicle Leasing is an incredibly cost-effective way to have your ideal electric car at an affordable rate. Whether you’re an individual or business, we have the best Honda e lease offers for you.
We think the new Honda e stands out from rivals due to its modern and unique design. This could be a great lease option if you’re looking for a fully electric little run around car. Although, it joins a fiercely competitive market where other electric cars already have an established reputation. This leaves us wondering if the Honda e is strong enough to leave a lasting mark in this segment. Only time will tell though!
