HONDA e – Is this the ultimate Urban Electric Car?

Rory Reid takes the Honda E out for a drive in its natural urban habitat in this brand new episode.

It’s retro alright, but it’s also built for the modern world. We have featured the Honda E before, but this is the first time we’ve been able to try it out in its natural urban habitat. One thing is for sure, it is a beautiful car with a smooth and simple design that turns heads wherever it goes. Despite being compact, it’s surprisingly still a 5 door, and offers up some notable extra features including cameras for wing mirrors and a panoramic glass sunroof. For a premium compact car though, the battery and range are also small in comparison to other similar-sized EVs. It’s fun to drive and a great little city car, but is the Honda E the ultimate urban EV? If not, which one is?
