Why did you choose this car?
I liked the design and I trust the manufacturer having owned Hondas before.

 

Positives – List 3 or more reasons why you love this car?

  • Nippy in traffic
  • Good handling
  • Stylish
  • Cheap to run.

 

Negatives – List 3 or more things that you really don’t like about this car?

  • High initial purchase price compared to ICE cars (EV problem in general)
  • No other issues with it.

 

Surprise us! Tell us something surprising about this car?
I can get better than the specified range, 145 miles is possible with 16 inch wheels.

 

What EV are you interested in next and why?
Will eventually get a larger EV to replace my wife’s hybrid. Will see what is available nearer the time. Don’t intend to replace the Honda e as it is perfect for my commute.

 

What home charging unit do you use? Would you recommend it to others and why?
EO tethered – I like it because it is small and unobtrusive.

 

What home electricity supplier & tariff do you use? Would you recommend it to others and why?
Octopus – It costs 5p/kWh at night which works out about 1p per mile on my car. Octopus are great to deal with. They installed my EO charger too.

 

What public charging networks do you use? Would you recommend them to others and why?
Have only used rapid charging once in the year I have owned my car so don’t have enough experience to comment.

 

Who do you insure your EV with? Would you recommend them to others and why?
LV out of habit. Don’t know if they are most competitive but they  offer free EV recovery if you run out of charge (I haven’t!)
