Another compliance ev. Low range city car with lots of tech.
But it’s cute!August 5, 2020 at 10:18 am #121247File28
Not a lot of car for a lot of AP
130 ish range
Minimal storage for some who needs to carry anything with them
Might just be me but not a fan of small bevs
Might suit others as we all have different needsAugust 5, 2020 at 10:25 am #121248gothitjulieParticipant

Look at the positives though, the charge port is in the right place, at the front, high up.
The wing mirrors won’t get knocked off in the City.
You can cook your lunch in it.
It’s very nerdy.
OK, it has some downsides…
Doesn’t like being repeatedly charged on the same dayAugust 5, 2020 at 10:26 am #121249Tharg
Good to see Motability expanding EV choice. That said, a range of just 125 miles is not terribly desirable. Also, shame it does not have a two-door version – much simpler for entry/exit in the disabled world – the cute design just begs for it!August 5, 2020 at 11:25 am #121251TheSUVGuy
Nice spot! This is going to be a very popular car, I know the range doesn’t seem like much but for inner city / town driving it’s great, I remember Matt Watson from carwow saying it’s one he will be getting. The more the choice the better and hopefully we see more soonAugust 5, 2020 at 11:28 am #121252Chefthe1
Still no medium size electric car for under 25s to drive. This really needs to be looked atAugust 5, 2020 at 11:41 am #121253File28
Guess I’m just old school

not very big, huge ap. low range.
its a no for me.August 5, 2020 at 12:06 pm #121257DBtruthParticipant
Good spot. I think this is a great looking little car. I could probably manage that range although I’d have to charge it more than once a week which isn’t what I’d like. Compared with other EV’s on the scheme I don’t think it looks particularly good value.
However, I am pleased that’s it’s another new option and might be great for some peopleAugust 5, 2020 at 3:33 pm #121277vinalspinParticipant
The turning circle does it for me.August 6, 2020 at 1:43 pm #121352JSModerator

Should think they will be a very rare sight on the roads.August 6, 2020 at 4:16 pm #121359Tharg
Good video review. One thing strikes, though, too many touch-screen bleepy flashy things. Have one in own car (Mini hatch) and turned it off. Found it too distracting – have to look at it seriously to find the right bit to touch. With a physical switch, once your hand learns where to find said switch, you do not need to take eyes off road. Would find that complicated array mind-numbing. With almost identical range and a quicker motor, the Mini electric would be my choice – it actually has some real proper switches.
Nice printed brochure, Honda. Does the cute doxy come as standard or is she an extra?August 6, 2020 at 4:39 pm #121360ElliotParticipant
From the front it reminds me of a small Austin Maxi.
Disgusting AP.August 6, 2020 at 6:39 pm #121366roxParticipant
I got interrupted watching this the otherday.
My first ever car was a honda accord hatchback and i just got a civic. The hondae is being targeted as a purely city car as i think the range is not much at all and that is the idea. Pretty much like the old civic and it’s conception.August 6, 2020 at 6:43 pm #121368Carl
Lovely looking super mini, but real range figures are awful.
At motor way speed the real range of this honda drops to 75 miles…. which is awful in my opinion. Pottering around town it’s real range is around 116 which I guess is ok if you never go anywhere else.August 6, 2020 at 7:24 pm #121371Moreton5

Another triumph of form over function.
I’m sure I read one review that reckoned they got 110 miles range. In winter time that’s probably 80 ish. Fine around town but not very realistic for a weekend away.August 7, 2020 at 10:54 pm #121442martinoParticipant
it looks great but too small for meAugust 8, 2020 at 1:52 am #121443PhiljbParticipant
It’s expensive for a little city car, even allowing for the tech.
A Vw up would be much more practical and almost as frugal.August 8, 2020 at 5:16 pm #121467roxParticipant
I had an up as a courtesy car for my golf and i was not impressed at all. It reminded me of a fiat panda. I think the hondae is meant to be something very different to the norm of what others are doing.
Reminds me a bit of the fiat 500 and for a small car it cost more than others around. I think it’s a pure city car if you going away for the weekend you’d just get a train or a plane.August 16, 2020 at 1:44 pm #121977bluecloudukParticipant
£3K is very steep for a small car. On the flip side, £3K for small, very nippy car with all the bells and whistles is quite reasonable.
I like the VW Golf Mk1 styling. Range is dire. Less than 1 lap of the M25 before needing a charge is unacceptable from something so small although unsurprising for 1.5 tonnes of bleeding edge technology. It weighs more than my Skoda Octavia 2.0 diesel with the same power output.
I’d have one if I had a drive but I don’t like the idea of a trailing charge cable winding across the pavement.
