Honda e real-world REVIEW - with 10 London landmarks CHALLENGE!

9 730
On the lookout for your next car? Head to to find the right car from the right dealer, at the right price.
The Honda e is one of the most desirable electric cars of 2020… And Mat’s finally got his hands on one!
However, while it might have initially caught our eye with its looks, is it more style over substance? Or is the Honda e a serious contender to stand out in the ever-growing market of small electric cars?
Well with a range of only 137 miles it’s unlikely to be able to compete with some of the bigger, more expensive EVs, but how does it work as a little city runaround? We’ve set a series of 10 challenges through the centre of London to see just how Honda’s new EV can cope when put to the test through one of the busiest cities in Europe! Will it pass with flying colours? Stick with Mat to find out!

@carwow of course Tesla is the best in electric cars but the Honda E has so much charisma that I'd love to buy it. The most annoying thing to me is its range. I wish they will provide (at least as an optional) bigger batteries.

That story about London Bridge is pretty good, but that is all it is, a story. The person who bought London bridge, knew he was buying London bridge, not tower bridge. London bridge was for sale at the time, as it was too small for the location.

Up the range to 250 miles, replace with nicer screens and faster OS and most importantly sort that price out. would be the improvements, but apart from that this does look like a superb little car.

Why should I buy a new car. The depreciation is so high. Second hand cars are no better in depreciation. Why should the general public put up with this high depreciation. An urgent Government review is needed to look into the car industry retail sector.

does Honda make a gas version of this? I'd buy it, 1.0 litre gasoline with a turbo. cars in america are getting too big because americans are getting fatter, i'm a 6 ft tall guy but i love small cars. hope they make the gasoline on this chasis!

when people in venezuela had their days long blackout, the people who had a car with combustion engine were the only one who could charge their phones and enjoy the benefits of modern civilization. if climate change would be ruled as a scam , electric cars would become obsolete

9:22 - interesting that what you Brits refer to as a 'Panoramic Roof' is simply a 'sunroof' in the States. Panoramic is when it's over the front and rear seats, not just the front's. Compelling car otherwise. We'll not see it here. 😥

stop complaining about the traffic. The traffic I see in this video is amazingly good. You're always the 1st or 2nd car at the stop light, not the 15th car. We never get this good of a traffic and that's with Waze that knows the red spots and how to avoid them. Waze is mandatory. But then, I live in the number 1 city for bad traffic in Europe.
