2020 Honda E: Retro electric hatch is not coming to America

The 2020 Honda E is a small electric hatch that’s both retro and modern, and will go on sale from 2020 in Europe, but it’s not coming to America.

In Europe the Honda E will be available with two powertrain choices: a base 100kW (134hp) model or a more powerful 113kW (152hp) version.

Both versions have 315Nm (232 lb-ft), and the motor is on the rear axle powering the rear wheels. They also feature a 35.5kWh battery good for a WLTP range of 220km (137mi).

The 0-100km/h time is around 8s, and with a fast charger the battery can be filled to 80% in 30 minutes.

The interior has large touchscreens, and a personal assistant that responds to the keyphrase “OK Honda”.
