The Honda e is the Japanese brand’s first all-electric car designed from the ground up in the compact city hatchback class. The car offers its owners absolutely environmentally friendly mobility, confident range for daily use in the city and high technology equipment with full compatibility with mobile gadgets.
The Honda e electric car is built on a completely new platform created specifically for electric drivetrain vehicles and is powered by a 110 kW (150 hp) electric motor with 300 N⋅m of torque and rear-wheel drive.
The Honda e battery pack features a liquid-cooled 35.5 kW⋅h lithium-ion battery located in the floor of the car and provides a low center of gravity, due to which the electric car has the correct 50:50 weight distribution, which positively affects the handling of the compact car.
The electric car’s battery provides a range of 200 km on the WLTP cycle, and it can be charged using either the Type 2 AC plug or the 100 kW CCS Combo 2 fast DC charger, which provides a charge of up to 80% in 30 minutes. The Honda e charging port is located in the hood of the electric car, is easily accessible and offers a light indication of charge status.
The Honda e has a uniquely unique design of a compact hatchback in a 5-door design. The exterior of the electric car can be called proportional with elements close in style. In particular, the front and rear optics are almost identical in their performance and are equally separated by a black plastic insert.
There are essentially no classic door handles in the Honda e, the rear handles are built directly into the body, the front handles are automatically pulled out of the doors, and cameras are offered instead of side mirrors.
The car is extremely compact, with a turning radius of only 4.3 meters, making it extremely maneuverable in busy city traffic.
Inside, the Honda e offers a combination of a practical interior with high-tech equipment. The trim materials cannot be called premium, but they are very good, quality finishes and assembled. The car is small and adapted to use in an urban environment, so it is hard to claim good practicality. Inside there is room for no more than 4 people, but in general the electric car is made primarily for the driver.
It is for him that Honda offers the most comfort by surrounding it with an innovative digital dashboard, two 12.3-inch high-resolution screens and 2 displays of side camera mirrors. Everything is digitized and offers exclusively touch-screen controls. The two-spoke multi steering wheel is comfortable to grip and does not interfere with the dashboard view at all.
Honda e is a new electric car with technology at its core. A multitude of touch-screen displays offer all the variety of modern technological features. The multimedia system supports the connection of mobile gadgets for iOS and Android with the ability to browse social networks, listen to music, use the Internet and navigation on a wide screen.
To remotely control the electric car offers a mobile application that allows you to monitor charging, control the climate system, as well as perform the function of the digital key.
In addition, Honda e offers its owners an artificial intelligence system capable of performing various voice commands of the driver and give various recommendations while driving.

Home and Destination Charging (0 -> 100%)
A public charging station is required to use the highest possible charging rate. The EVSE/charging station’s charging capacity affects how long it takes to fully charge the battery. The table below shows all possible options for fully charging the Honda e Advance.
In Europe, plugging an electric car into an outlet is often as easy as plugging it into a household outlet, but there are differences from country to country. The table below shows the different ways to charge the Honda e Advance, but in some countries some chargers may not be available.

Fast Charging (10 -> 80%)
If you want to enjoy driving an electric car, one of the most important features to consider is the number of miles per hour the car can travel while charged. This is called the “range” of the car. All electric cars have a certain range, even if they are 100% charged. This is because they do not have an internal combustion engine to lean on if you need to drive a long distance.
