While most carmakers are focusing on making electric sedans and electric SUVs, Japanese carmaker Honda Cars are preparing to make a small car as its first fully electric car.
Earlier this month, the company released a compact model called the Honda E in Europe, designed solely for city driving. Let me tell you that at present, Tesla’s Model 3 sedan car is quite dominating in the electric car market.
Along with this, other brands such as Audi AG and Hyundai Motor Company have focused on long driving range electric SUV cars. EV cars are placed at the end of premium cars due to the high battery cost and cost.
Many large automobile manufacturers are developing new models for this purpose, which can achieve a range of up to 570 kilometres on a single charge. However, the Honda E has almost half the battery capacity as compared to the Tesla Model 3, which offers a range of 280 kilometres.
With a retro, ultra-compact design that has developed Honda’s classic N360 and N600 models since the 1960s, the two-door Honda E is intended to be proven as an upmarket city car. The price of this car can be around 33,000 Euros, i.e. $ 39,000.
