Honda e Reservations Begin In Europe, Refundable Fee Is £800 In The UK

Reservations for the Honda e, the brand’s first all-electric vehicle to be sold in Europe, are now open in four markets across the continent.

Customers in the UK, Germany, France, and Norway can secure an early build slot for the Honda e via a dedicated online reservation website by paying a refundable reservation fee that, in the UK, is £800 (approximately $1,015).

Customers will then be able to place an order from later this year but they won’t get their Honda e delivered earlier than spring 2020. The reservation system only allows buyers to choose from five exterior color options for the Honda e. Those include Platinum White Metallic, Crystal Black Pearl, Crystal Blue Metallic, Modern Steel Metallic, and Charge Yellow.

“We are delighted to be offering a reservation option to our customers in select European markets for the first time with the Honda e. The Honda e in prototype form has received an overwhelming response and with over 25,000 registrations of interest across Europe, customers now have the opportunity to secure priority status to order the model,” said Jean-Marc Streng, General Manager, Automobile Division – Honda Motor Europe Ltd.

The production EV will be almost identical to the Honda e Prototype unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show earlier this year. The automaker promises “trademark Honda driving dynamics” for its compact electric car thanks to the sporty rear-wheel-drive format and advanced electric powertrain.

The Honda e is the brand’s first compact model built on a dedicated EV platform, but the company is still keeping most specifications a secret. All we know is the it will deliver a range of over 125 miles (201 km) and a 30-minute fast charge function to 80 percent battery capacity.

Launching the e compact EV is part of Honda’s commitment to have 100 percent of automobile sales in Europe with electrified powertrains by 2025.

    Going to sell like CRAZY.

    I predict it will be like the first VW Bug craze that went on for many many years. unless of course if there ends up being some major flaw. otherwise sales will go “through the roof”

    • Love everything about this car except two things: range (not so important for me and I think for most customers), price – this is the major question. The interior is beautifully done and indicates a high asking price, but if the price is too high, then the range will seem too low. So yes, it will sell like crazy, but only if the price is kept at sane levels.

    This car will rock…… 😉

    Nice car

  • salamOOn

    nicely done, except that crazy charging port location….

    • THEY COULD HIDE IT BEHIND THE REAR PLATE OR THE TAIL LIGHT. IT LOOKS LIKE THERE WON’T BE ANY STORAGE UP FRONT.

    Cool and everything, but 200km range?
    Fail incoming

    • europeon

      Enough for a city car.

      • Exactly. Driving 200kms in a city is hell a lot. Most will do 20-30kms and then charge once a week.

  • Bash

    This is how affordable EVs should look. This is the benchmark; design wise.

  • cat

    Give that car 320 kilometers (198 milles) 415 kilometers (257 milles) of range or more and it will sell well with only 200 kilometers (125 milles) it will be a low sales car !

    • It’s a small city car, doesn’t really need long range, rather a lower price than let’s say a Model 3.

  • delila

    I basically generating around $5841 each month through internet . That is really perfect profits to change from my 9-5 previous job , In fact the most desirable feature with it is that I now do business for only just very few hrs in a day which makes me so much more of spare time rather than what I had before with my kids. Here’s the right way to get started->-> QQXBYTE.WIN/tthypv

    Now, go design all of your other cars around this.. This car is cool, unlike your other over designed things you currently put out.

      Hopefully, the SPORT 2 door version will come State side.

    This car will most likely be one of Japan’s big advertising campaigns for the 2020 Olympics held in Japan.

  • Loquacious Borborygmus

    An opportunity missed.

  • THEY NEED TO OFFER SOME FUN BRIGHT COLORS, NOT BLACK, GRAY AND WHITE. ENOUGH WITH THE DRAB PAINT TREND.

  • SteersUright

    What a beautiful little Honda. I think it would sell very well in the USA.
