Honda Electric Vehicle Will be Called Honda e

Honda is taking the easy road when it comes to naming its upcoming electric vehicle.

It will simply be called Honda e, and don’t you dare capitalize that e. Figure it out, Word document. Honda’s electric vehicle will come to Europe later this year, and then we expect Honda will study the possibility of bringing its EV to North America. We can’t see that happening for a couple of years, however.

The first production Honda e will be heavily influenced by the Honda e Prototype unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show. Although officially a concept, the e Prototype was very close to production ready and we really hope Honda will keep as many of the prototype’s retro components.

The Honda e Prototype’s positive reception was key to getting the model to the market. Honda has been trailing other automakers like Nissan and Chevrolet when it comes to electrification, and there were some internal struggles at Honda to get the e Prototype to production.

About the same size as a subcompact car like the Honda Fit and Toyota Yaris, the Honda e Prototype features one of the prettiest interiors we’ve ever seen. In any segment. In any price range. It’s straight out of the 80s, but with a modern infotainment screen that goes almost the entire length of the dashboard.

Range is predicted at around 200 kilometers which is a lot less that what we’re seeing from other new electric vehicles on the market, but at least the battery can be charged up to 80 % in 30 minutes.

We should learn more about the Honda e specs and info in the next few months now that we have a name for Honda’s first production full EV.
