On the lookout for your next car? Head to to find the right car from the right dealer, at the right price.
The Honda e is one of the most desirable electric cars of 2020… And Mat’s finally got his hands on one!
However, while it might have initially caught our eye with its looks, is it more style over substance? Or is the Honda e a serious contender to stand out in the ever-growing market of small electric cars?
Well with a range of only 137 miles it’s unlikely to be able to compete with some of the bigger, more expensive EVs, but how does it work as a little city runaround? We’ve set a series of 10 challenges through the centre of London to see just how Honda’s new EV can cope when put to the test through one of the busiest cities in Europe! Will it pass with flying colours? Stick with Mat to find out!

    • @carwow of course Tesla is the best in electric cars but the Honda E has so much charisma that I'd love to buy it. The most annoying thing to me is its range. I wish they will provide (at least as an optional) bigger batteries.

  • I expect these will be very popular around Chelsey where they have more money than sense and range isn’t an issue - just popping down to the local shops (Harrods), then time for tea at the Ritz. And there’s lots of space in the back for the dog (french miniature bulldog). But all that aside I think it’s the nicest looking EV and sure to be a future classic, much like the original mini was, pity about the price.

  • That story about London Bridge is pretty good, but that is all it is, a story. The person who bought London bridge, knew he was buying London bridge, not tower bridge. London bridge was for sale at the time, as it was too small for the location.
