It’s recently been shared with MotorMartin that the highly anticipated Honda e, a car we’re very much looking forward to, has picked up the best tech award at the 2020 DrivingElectric Awards. 

The team at DrivingElectric, known as the ultimate guide to buying and owning an electric car, have explained to MotorMartin how they commended the Honda e for bringing a new level of infotainment tech to any class of car, let alone the small car class, and for the Side Camera Mirror System, which they said was remarkable to have as standard.

Honda have confirmed the following already:

Arriving in dealerships early next summer, the Honda e will start from £26,160* for the 100kW version, rising to £28,660 for the “Advance” grade that includes further specification and a motor output increased to 113kW. The car will also be available on finance and start from £299 per month for the base grade**.

Vicky Parrott, Associate editor at DrivingElectric, commented to MotorMartin recently: “With full-width screens facing the driver and front-seat passenger and cameras in place of door mirrors, the Honda e feels more spacecraft than city car inside. While it may seem overwhelming at first, a logical layout and responsive controls mean it all works well in practice, as well as being one of many eye-catching talking points on this highly distinctive car.”

Phil Webb, head of car at Honda UK, added: “To wrap up 2019 with an award win is a great achievement for the Honda e and being recognised by the leading publication when it comes to EVs is a fantastic badge of honour. The Honda e is a very important model for us in our powertrain journey towards electrification, so we look forward to seeing this success continue when the car arrives next summer.”
