Price, battery timing, features: Here's all you need to know about Honda's first-ever Electric Car

The EV was launched in Europe at the beginning of August.

Honda is set on changing the image of Electric Vehicles worldwide by introducing the idea of \\’every man\\’s Electric Vehicle (EV)\\’. The automobile manufacturers have created the company\\’s first mini hatchback that runs on an all-electric drivetrain: Honda e.

The EV was launched in Europe at the beginning of August.

The following are the specifications of The Honda e:

  • Honda e is powered by a 35 KW/h battery, which allows it to be driven up to about 230 kilometers on a single charge.
  • It takes up to 4 hours for the battery to charge from zero to full, on a fast charge. However, if the regular 3 pin plug is used to charge the battery, it can take up to 18 hours.
  • The range-topping Honda e variant is equipped with a single electric motor that makes 154 horsepower and sends all that power to the rear wheels.
  • It features regenerative braking that allows an automatic braking facility and helps recharge the battery when activated.
  • The car\\’s top-end variant is loaded with a panoramic sunroof, adaptive cruise control with lane keep assist, and a radar detection feature.
  • The car has a heated steering wheel that flaunts multimedia switches, cameras instead of side mirrors, an interior rearview mirror/camera, six airbags, and more standard features.
  • Equipped with a vast infotainment system, the EV boasts five screens that span across the dashboard\\’s entire width. One screen is for the front passenger, one in the center for general use, another for the driver (which also contains all the vital car info), and two on either side that act as side-view mirrors.

Although the design of the Honda e is superior, some people are viewing it as costly and hard to maintain. The former because the car\\’s features mentioned above come at a hefty price tag of about $39,000 (Rs. 6.6 Million). The latter because the EV runs on an all-electric drivetrain.

Only time will tell whether Honda struggles to compete with lower-priced, better mileage offering competitors like the Mini Cooper EV, Renault Zoe, Peugeot e-208, Volkswagen e-up, or wins EV buyers over with its looks and innovative features.
