Reservations being taken for Honda e

Reservations are now being taken by Honda from those buyers interested in the all-electric Honda e city car. A fee of £800 will get them priority status to order their Honda e later this year.

Deliveries are set to start from spring 2020, and Honda has followed the example of a number of other manufacturers in obtaining deposits for highly anticipated EVs. The likes of Tesla, Audi, VW, and Hyundai have all set-up a similar system for past launches.

The announcement of the reservation system has revealed that the Honda e will be available with a choice of five colours: white, black, blue, silver, and yellow.

More than 25,000 registrations of interest have been placed across Europe since the prototype Honda e - previously known as the Urban EV - was unveiled and announced that it would enter production.

Details are limited, but we do know that it will be rear-wheel drive, have a range of more than 125 miles, and will be able to rapid charge to 80% in around 30 minutes. There is a focus on driving enjoyment and design, where Honda has focused the e on urban environments, rather than chasing a large outright range.

Those wishing to reserve their spot in the queue, can do so at Honda's dedicated site.
