Honda has unveiled a relatively compact electric car at the Frankfurt auto show. Earlier, the manufacturer already published teasers of the design of this Honda e. The car gets a 35.5 kWh battery and gets a relatively hefty starting price of 29,470 euros in Germany.

Honda has shown the final production version of the Honda e at the Frankfurt show. As far as the battery is concerned, there is one version with a capacity of 35.5 kWh. According to the Japanese manufacturer, that means a range of 220 km, where Honda says it is basing itself on internal data and does not mention the commonly used wltp standard. The car comes in versions with 136 or 154 hp, gets a torque of 315 Nm and has to sprint from 0 to 100 km/h in 8 seconds.

The automaker says this battery is one of the most compact in its class. The company does not report the exact capacities with which the battery can be charged, but does announce that the car can be recharged to 80 percent in thirty minutes. Honda also showed a special own home charger, which allows 7.4kW with a single-phase connection or 22kW with a three-phase connection. This Honda Power Manager is also able to supply power to the grid via the Honda e.

The interior of the car features a fully digital dashboard with two 12.3-inch touchscreens directly next to the steering wheel. These LCDs act as infotainment screens, but all the left and right seem to have screens built in that show camera images from built-in sensors. Also A screen has been placed directly behind the steering wheel for the necessary data while driving.

The Honda e should be available from the summer of next year. The version with 136 hp will receive a starting price of 29,470 euros in Germany; this already includes the German subsidy of 4000 euros. The 154hp version costs 32,470 euros. In any case, the car will be available in the UK, Germany, France and Norway from September. With the mentioned prices and the not too large battery, the car will have a hard time on paper with competitors such as the Renault Zoe, Peugeot e-208, Opel Corsa-e or the recently unveiled Volkswagen ID.3.
