Prices for Honda’s e electric city car have been revealed – alongside a production-ready model – at the 2019 Frankfurt Motor Show.
It starts from £26,160, with deliveries expected to commence by early summer 2020.
Buy on finance for £299 a month
The 100kW Honda e costs from £26,160, although that figure includes the £3,500 government plug-in car grant. Without that, it would be £29,660.
The 113kW ‘Advance’ version begins at £28,660, inclusive of the grant.
Alternatively, Honda e finance starts from £299 per month. That’s based on an 8,000-mile annual limit and 23 percent deposit. Paying £50 a month more gets you into the Advance model, which has an electric centre mirror to accompany the camera side mirrors, plus Honda Parking Pilot.
Honda e Advance – order from today
Ordering for the Advance version opens today at dealerships in the UK. Those who made initial reservations will get priority. Expect to receive an invitation to link up with your local dealer if you are among them.
Follow through with the order and you can expect to get one of the first summer 2020 deliveries.
“We’re pleased to be able to confirm the pricing for the Honda e,” said Phil Webb, head of car at Honda UK.
“Designed for the urban environment, and originally called the Urban EV, the Honda e has a competitive range of up to 136 miles.
“Honda research has found the average European commute is approximately 30 miles, making it more than sufficient. Coupled with the fast-charge capability of 80 percent in 30 minutes, the Honda e is perfect for the urban environment.
“Honda e is the embodiment of the brand’s commitment to electrification and is the next step towards our electric vision for 100 percent of European sales to be electrified by 2025.”
