Is Honda e The Perfect City EV? – Specs, Range & More!

Honda has jumped into the EV space with a retro-styled e EV that combines the traditional outlook with the powertrain of the future. The result is a compact city electric car.

Honda e is an urban electric car (EV) designed keeping in mind the needs of city-dwellers.
