Lease Buy

Price: £34,365 - £36,865

The Honda e is cute, tech-packed and perfect for city driving, but it’s pricey, has a limited range and is a bit small for a family.

Ginny Says

“How can you resist the Honda e? Honda’s first all-electric car is very cute and looks like it should be star in the next Disney movie. Small EVs with a modest range make a lot of sense as a second car. But it does cost a lot more than the Mini Electric, which is a better all-rounder.”

Tom Says

“Honda has put together a smart package, it looks retro, is packed with tech and I think it’ll go on to become an iconic car. Of course, you pay for that package and it’s price may prove a stumbling block, but think of this as the latest must-have fashion accessory.”

Got questions? We've put together the most frequently-asked topics below. If there's something we haven't answered here or in the review then let us know on our contact page

How much is the Honda e in the UK?

The Honda e costs from £34,365. Reckon on a monthly payment of around £415 to get one on a lease or PCP finance scheme.

Is the Honda e a hybrid?

No, it’s a fully electric car with no petrol or diesel engine at all.

How big is the battery in a Honda e?

Pretty small! At just 35.5kWh the Honda e’s battery is tiny compared to rivals such as the 52kWh Renault Zoe, while a Kia Soul EV has a whopping 64kWh. On the plus side, it means the e is lighter.

How big is the Honda e?

At 3,895mm the Honda e is smaller than most of the small hatchback rivals. That’s handy for parking but does mean the boot size suffers.

Is the Honda e fast?

The basic Honda e has a perfectly reasonable 134 bhp, which is about the same as a conventional 1.4-litre petrol car. But the one you’ll really want is the 151 bhp Honda e Advance. This cuts acceleration from 0-62 mph from 9.0 seconds to 8.3 seconds and makes it feel really quite quick, especially at lower speeds.
