Reservations are now open for the all-electric Honda e urban electric vehicle in the UK, Germany, France and Norway.
A dedicated online reservation website allows customers to reserve a priority status to order the Honda e with a refundable reservation fee of £800. Customers will then be able to place an order from later this year with first deliveries of the vehicle from Spring 2020.
The rear-wheel drive Honda e will deliver a range of over 125 miles and the capability to ‘fast charge’ to 80% battery capacity in 30 minutes.
The Honda e will be available in five colours: Platinum White Metallic, Crystal Black Pearl, Crystal Blue Metallic, Modern Steel Metallic and Charge Yellow.
The prototype of the Honda e was presented at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show and confirmed that many of the signature features first revealed on the 2017 Honda Urban EV Concept are being retained for production.
The Honda e will contribute to Honda’s commitment of 100 per cent of car sales in Europe with electrified powertrains by 2025.
Honda has already received over 20,000 expressions of interest across Europe, with approximately 6,000 of those coming from the UK.
“We are delighted to be offering a reservation option to our customers in select European markets for the first time with the Honda e,” said Jean-Marc Streng, General Manager, Automobile Division – Honda Motor Europe Ltd. “The Honda e in prototype form has received an overwhelming response and with over 25,000 registrations of interest across Europe, customers now have the opportunity to secure priority status to order the model”.
Phil Webb, head of car at Honda UK, commented: “The official naming and the opening of the reservation process is the next step in the Honda e journey and the path to 100% electrification of Honda’s model range in Europe by 2025. UK customers are leading the charge by being among the first in Europe to reserve their priority status to order the Honda e.”
