Honda e
« on: May 15, 2019, 04:24:06 PM »
I have just received an email from Honda telling me that the new all electric car is to be called the Honda e, and will be available next spring. They are inviting me to put down an £800 refundable reservation fee, which will get me priority delivery. If only I was in the market for a new Honda I would jump at the opportunity.

The Sunday Times had an article on it a few months back, I quote:
"it will likely cost about the same as similar cars such as the Renault Zoe. We expect the base price will be around the £20,000 mark, after you factor in the governmentís current £3,500 Plug-In Car Grant."

We'll soon know. Not long until it comes on the market.

Electric cars need to come down in price a lot before they become attractive to most buyers. Not enough range for a first car and too expensive for a second car.

I've had an email from Honda which claims "over 125 miles" range and fast charge to 80% in 30 minutes.

Also "Reservations are now open for priority ordering and preferential delivery in 2020."

If anyone has ever wondered why the 80% figure is used by BEV car makers it is because getting above 80% charge takes a lot longer and can damage the battery.  Bit like saying a car has a 50 litre fuel tank and you can get 40 litres in very quickly, but getting the last 10 litres in is going to take you 3 hours and damage the tank.

For the majority of motorists 80% is probably all they need. 100 miles after a half hour charge. That'll do me.

Itís a 100 mile round trip to the wifeís motherís house. And the she always wants to be taken somewhere. Probably a fine city car but not much use for a commute or general driving.

The 'e' will be a design icon I'm sure. But it's crucially not affordable for most. The warning bells started to jangle when the presenter said that Honda had brought him over. Bought would be the correct word !

I would  strongly dispute that. Robert LLewellyn Is very much for electric vehicles but dead against manufacturers trying to "buy" his influence.
