Used Honda e for sale
The Honda e is a small city car that comes with retro-inspired styling and a high-level of advanced technology. As the Japanese manufacturer's first all-electric model, the Honda e is an emissions-free alternative to the larger Jazz and Civic models if you don't need the extra space.
With more automotive manufacturers entering the BEV market, Honda have ensured the Honda e stands out from the crowd with a range of great features, such as:
- Wide range of safety equipment as standard
- Practical charging times
- Enough range for day-to-day use
- Fun driving dynamics
Engines and Driving Experience
Being an all-electric vehicle, the Honda e obviously doesn't come with a traditional internal combustion engine (ICE). Instead, an electric motor powers the car and is available in, what Honda call, two 'grades'.
The standard Honda e offers 124bhp whilst the higher-powered Honda e Advance offers 152bhp. With power delivered to the wheels instantaneously, 0 to 62mph times are 9.0 and 8.3 seconds respectively, giving the Honda e an enjoyable driving experience.
Responsive handling makes the Honda e ideal for zipping around town. Not only is it good fun, but it's also fairly competent when it comes to dealing with bumps and imperfections in the road, allowing you to enjoy the range of up to 136 miles in comfort. The batteries can be charged in a respectable amount of time, under six hours when using a 7.4kW home charging point, to be precise.
Practicality and Running Costs
Being so dinky, practicality isn't the Honda e's forte. Front space is good however, and offers enough legroom for taller occupants to ride fairly comfortable. In the rear, it's a different story so you may want to ask your shorter friends to sit in the back.
You'll get 171 litres of boot space, which is enough for a couple of bags of shopping. If you're carrying larger bits of cargo, folding the back seats offers a larger 861-litre space, but the rear bench folds as one, meaning your rear passengers will have to stay at home on that day.
Electric cars often demand more of a premium than their ICE counterparts when it comes to insurance, with the Honda e ranging from group 25 to 29 (out of 50). All Evans Halshaw dealerships are also well-equipped to deal with any servicing or maintenance requirements.
Interior, Technology and Safety
The first thing to catch your eyes in the cabin will be the multiple screens that span across the width of the dashboard, which can be used as both a conventional infotainment system as well as an entertainment hub thanks to a HDMI port, allowing you to watch movies whilst having a break from driving.
The dashboard is also built using high-quality materials such as the wood-effect inserts, boosting overall feel. Advanced technology such as rear view camera 'mirrors' reiterate how futuristic the Honda e is.
Various bits of safety equipment is also pre-loaded into the Honda e, including:
- Lead Car Departure Notification System
- Collision Mitigation Throttle Control
- Low Speed Brake Function
- Lane Keep Assist
- Adaptive Cruise Control
Is the Honda e right for me?
If you're looking to enter the world of electric vehicles and want something fun for getting around town, the Honda e is a great choice.
Other all-electric city cars such as the SEAT Mii electric and Skoda Citigo-e iV may also be of interest. But if you're looking for something more practical or suitable for a small family, larger all-electric superminis such as the Peugeot e-208 and Vauxhall Corsa-e are great places to start.
