The new Honda e has been engineered for urban environment with its responsive dynamics, efficiency and performance making it fun-to-drive.

Equipped with a high-power electric motor and 35.5kWh battery, one of the most compact in its class, means the Honda e has a low weight and a fast-charging capability of 80% in 30 minutes with a range of over 200km.

The battery is located low under the vehicle floor, the car's centre of gravity is approximately 50cm from the ground. This helps the vehicle have a 50:50 weight distribution to provide a combination of stability and handling performance. The low centre of gravity and planted stature of the Honda e allows body roll to be managed without stiffly-sprung suspension, delivering outstanding handling in fast lane changes. Honda engineers benchmarked the ride quality of the car against larger segment cars, utilising a four-wheel independent McPherson Strut design to ensure a comfortable and refined ride for occupants.

To help deliver a sporty character, power is delivered through the rear wheels, which also enables a greater steering articulation for the front wheels. As a result, the turning radius is approximately 4.3 metres, ensuring the Honda e is easy to manoeuvre in small city streets.

The Honda e offers Single Pedal Control, enabling the driver to accelerate and slow the car using only the accelerator pedal. When the accelerator pedal is depressed the car will accelerate as normal; when it is released, automatic regenerative braking will occur, and will slow the car.

High-strength materials contribute to structural rigidity while also reducing weight. The Honda e’s dynamic characteristics can be further enhanced by 'Sport Mode', which boosts performance through faster acceleration response.
