Why did you choose this car?
This is my seventh Honda so, after research, it made sense to begin my EV journey with the ‘e’. Whilst it was a little more expensive and a little short on range, it was bought for short to medium length journeys and I have no regrets. It’s fun to drive with loads of helpful tech and some bonkers!!


The one pedal driving is great and easy to get use to. The sensors for anti-collision and parking assist work well. The turning circle is great, smaller than a black taxi. Acceleration is spritely, which adds to the fun on the open road. The rear view screens are very clear and the dashboard screens are big and easy to scan through. Using our Pod Point home charger overnight, the car costs about £2 per 100 miles. The Honda e can be described as a town car + and I love it!


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

  • Like the retro look
  • loads of tech
  • comfortable
  • so cheap to run.
